4th of July 2013 Forecast

There will be a few showers and thunderstorms around this evening, so keep an eye to the sky if you are barbequing or going to see a fireworks display tonight.  Once the sun sets, most of the shower and storm activity will diminish and leave us a quiet night.  Expect a muggy low in the low 70s.

4th of July will be a mainly dry day with a good deal of hazy sun.  A pop-up thunderstorm is possible in the afternoon, but the best chances for this will be north and west of the city.  Highs will be near 90, but it will feel more like the mid 90s with the tropical levels of humidity.  This will likely be the beginning of heat wave # 3, and it could be a week-long heat wave too.  The evening hours tomorrow look fine if you're going to see a fireworks display.

Friday looks like a completely dry day thanks to a Bermuda High.  However, this high will pump in more heat and humidity as temperatures rise into the low 90s.  Saturday looks like more of the same, but an isolated afternoon storm can't be ruled out north and west of the city.

Thunderstorms are possible Sunday and Monday as a disturbance moves through.  Tuesday looks dry before another disturbance brings a chance for storms on Wednesday.
