Dodging downpours as we head into the 4th
Mother Nature may attempt to provide some of her own fireworks
The rain held off for most of the day on Monday, with a few showers popping up this evening over south county. It was a mainly dry day, but also a very humid one.
We’re not out of the woods just yet, though. Strong thunderstorms off to the west are headed this way, capable of producing torrential rain and gusty winds.
For your Independence Day, we will have some dry time but there will be a chance for dome drenching downpours all day long. The best chance for those will be during the afternoon hours.
As we head towards the evening, showers are likely to become less numerous as low pressure moves out, so I am optimistic for the majority of firework shows.
High pressure then builds in for Wed-Fri, with temperatures well into the 80s expected – but also a decline in humidity, making for some great summer days.
Looking ahead to the weekend, isolated shower chances return for both Saturday and Sunday.
Have a great night and a safe and happy 4th!
