Traditional Fourth Weekend Weather
Much like this afternoon and evening, scattered showers and thunderstorms ruled the forecast and the same is expected to persist through the Fourth. It’s not going to rain all the time, and there will be a fair amount of sunshine, but just be prepared for an afternoon thundery interruption at times. Temperatures will be near to slightly above normal through the period.

The weather map scheme looks just about like you would expect for the beginning of July. A Bermuda High-pressure system is taking shape in the western Atlantic, pumping in a gentle but steady supply of Gulf+Atlantic moisture. Meanwhile, a stationary front is going to be situated to our north near the Mason-Dixon Line over the weekend, while a lee trough of low-pressure sets up shop over the Foothills and/or Piedmont.
This combination of features will promote pretty good coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms for the foreseeable future. It’s difficult to pinpoint days with higher coverage, however, there will probably be a day or two over the next seven that are noisier than the rest.
No holiday weekend washouts are anticipated but just plan on an hour or two where you have to move things indoors each day.
