July 4th looking seasonable; mainly dry

If the pattern tells us anything for the 4th of July Weekend, it is that it will be hotter, but not extreme heat by any stretch of the imagination. There will be some showers and storms over the weekend, but will be widely scattered. By the time Tuesday rolls around next week, which is the 4th, (Saturday is July 1st already!) temperatures in the low 90s are expected.

An upper ridge of high pressure sitting near the Bahamas in the map above, will pump humid conditions our way for the Holiday. Also, it will warm us up, but no large ridge of high pressure is expected.

Friday will be a heavy travel day, so try to avoid driving then. June is on the way out, and almost over!
