The better odds of wet weather are Sunday night into the morning on July 4th. A band of showers and storms could be moving across the region. At this juncture, it doesn’t appear any storms would be severe in nature, but downpours, brief gusty winds, and lightning could be the main issues. Monday the 4th of July has a decent amount of clouds and it will be a bit humid. Additional chances of scattered showers or a storm for the afternoon and into the evening on Monday. This might have some minor impacts on fireworks displays, but not enough risks of storms that those would be canceled. No less, stay updated with the latest weather conditions on the First Alert Weather App. Highs on Monday are in the upper 70s to near 80.
