Forecast Last Updated at Friday, July 1, 2016 at 6:36AM

Sunshine; Rather Hot; Holiday Fireworks

Skies will become mostly sunny today with probably the warmest temperatures of the week. Holiday weekend weather features a mix of clouds and sunshine and scattered mostly PM showers and thunderstorms through Independence Day. So, expect both artificial and natural fireworks over the weekend. Still, we’re not expecting any washouts, just keep an eye to the sky and your RWC weather app to stay abreast of changes.

We have a new webcam in the family--a great look at the Ninth Golf Hole at Hound Ears Club. Thanks to the folks at the club for supporting the effort!

Forecast Discussion

High pressure will drive our weather to close out the workweek, providing plenty of sunshine along with some rather hot afternoon temperatures. The chance for a pop-up afternoon thundershower, while not zero, is too small for us to carry a mention today.

For the holiday weekend, a semi-stationary frontal system will camp out over the region, enhancing our threat for mostly PM showers and thunderstorms for Saturday, Sunday and Independence Day. Washout potential is low, but dodgeball-type afternoon thunderstorms will need to be a consideration in your outdoor plans.

After the Fourth, the area looks to be generally devoid of frontal passages and under the influence of high pressure. That will keep our weather status-quo with hit-or-miss afternoon thundershowers while temperatures remain seasonably very warm and rather humid.
