July 4 Thunderstorms, hot temperatures

As of now, we expect some early morning thunderstorms on Monday, which will dissipate in time for the late afternoon and night celebrations

Tonight we expect a low temperature of 73 degrees, with some south south east winds around 10mph. As we head into the early hours of the morning, the chances of rain and thunderstorms increase. We have a low risk of severe weather, some areas are slightly endangered. Potential threats to this event include large hail and strong, damaging winds. Sometimes heavy rain is also possible. Tornadoes are not likely, but cannot be completely ruled out.

As we continue through the morning, we expect most of the severe weather to clear by midday, leaving us with some possible persistent showers or thunderstorms. Some sunshine is expected in the afternoon and evening and temperatures will be nearing the 90’s with our high of 89 degrees. Heat Index levels can reach 95 degrees, so make sure to stay hydrated and use sunscreen when outdoors.

Moving to Tuesday and Wednesday, we can assume it feels like summer. High humidity and temperatures in the mid-80s keep us warm, isolated to isolated showers and thunderstorms are also possible.
