A lot of people will close out their work weeks today with the holiday tomorrow and continue the long weekend into Friday. We’ll expect a better coverage of showers and storms for this afternoon as our winds turn more from the west and southwest around an area of high pressure. With increased shower chances, some will see heat relief while others feel the heat and humidity. Highs will reach the low 90s with feels like temperatures in the triple digits.
Most everyone is eyeing that forecast for the Fourth of July tomorrow, and it won’t look that much different from the forecast today. Scattered showers and storms are expected with lots of heat and humidity otherwise. Storms won’t last all day and we should see some improvement by fireworks time after sunset. If you’ll be outside for any amount of time, make sure you protect yourself from the heat and have a back up plan in case storms threaten.
The extended weekend will feature more heat and humidity and some breaks. Saturday will be a drier day among the holiday weekend, but with any mostly rain-free day will come extreme heat and humidity.
