Independence Day forecast

For those planning to go to fireworks shows and other outoor events tonight or Saturday, weather is looking pretty decent, considering it is early July. It will be very warm (hot to some) and humidity will definitely be higher Saturday than tonight, but I think most rain will hold off until after Saturday evening’s events. Rain chances will increase overnight Saturday night and scattered thunderstorms will be around on Sunday as a cold front lingers over the region before moving out early next week. Right now, I would not cancel any outdoor plans, but it might be a good idea to have a “Plan B” for Sunday, just in case Mother Nature decides that Mid-Southerners are parched enough and she relieves some of the dryness with some much-needed rain. For most areas, we’re now into our third week of rain-free conditions and the heat of the past few weeks is taking its toll on vegetation – and we don’t need golden brown lawns this early in the summer!
