Happy Independence Day

We wish you a happy Independence day and it should be a good one weatherwise. It will be warm and humid. We remain warm and humid for the next week with chances for afternoon storms each day. However, the chances are low each day with Tuesday and Wednesday having the greatest coverage of afternoon storms.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure influences our weather today with warm and humid conditions. A cold front tries to move in from the northeast tomorrow and this will increase the clouds and afternoon storm chances but Sunday is still a nice day overall.

Monday, we are sandwiched in between a stalled front to our south and one to our north and are a little drier than Sunday. The stalled front to our south moves north a little and increases the chances of afternoon storms on Tuesday and Wednesday. Drier air works in for Thursday through the end of the week but there still could be afternoon storms develop, however, most areas will be dry. It will be warm and humid with temperatures slightly above average each day.
