After a quiet morning, although slightly humid, we will be in for afternoon rain and storms. Some of these storms can produce heavy rain and frequent lightning. No severe weather is expected at this time.

Fireworks displays through the weekend shouldn’t be too impacted by the rain/storms. Most of the rain should fizzle out by sunset. Some big events this weekend…Sunday, we have Fire on the Water at Oak Mountain State Park. Event begins at 5pm with Food trucks and other family friendly activities….Monday, we have American Village Independence day celebration. Gates open at 11am and admission is $5 for anyone 5 and older. Free for military.

Through the week, the rain chances will be spotty, and the heat starts ticking back up. With temperatures in the lower 90s and humidity levels increasing, the heat index values will be back in the low 100s.

We are tracking two tropical storms. Tropical Storm Colin is located along the coast of South Carolina, and will continue to move northeast this weekend as a minimal tropical storm before turning into The Atlantic near the Southern Virginia Coast. Heavy rain will be the primary impact within this area.

Tropical Storm Bonnie is heading west into The Pacific from Central America. Otherwise, no impacts for The Gulf of Mexico from either of these systems.
