Early Monday AM 4th of July Update – Drying and Clearing Out Today

Good early Monday morning, everyone. After we had our share of rain and t-storm chances for a good portion of the holiday weekend, we’re still set to trend drier as we get our 4th of July underway. We thankfully didn’t have to deal with any severe weather yesterday, and we’re just seeing scattered rain and t-storms below on the radar on this early Monday morning…

We still have the same stationary front hanging around the area and it’s giving us some rain and t-storms to start the day…

Thankfully, if you want things to eventually dry out and keep things quiet overall, the odds are in our favor today. We just need to get past the rain and t-storm chances that will be around to start the day. The Future Track below wants the cloud cover and some rain to stick around by 7 AM…

Once we hit the start of the afternoon, though, the rain should be pretty much out of here. After the rain jets out of here, we’ll focus on switching the skies from mostly cloudy to partly sunny. The Future Track below at 4 PM today certainly backs up that idea…

In terms of temperatures, we’ll start in the upper 60s to near 70 this morning. As we get the rain out and see the skies start to clear this afternoon, that should allow high temperatures to top out in the middle 80s…

As far as the weather is concerned for outdoor plans this evening and tonight, we’re in good shape. It’ll be on the warm side with temperatures in the middle to upper 70s by 10 PM, but the skies will stay quiet. Even though we keep things quiet for Tuesday, the summer heat will waste no time working back in. After we start in the lower 70s Tuesday morning, look for afternoon highs on Tuesday to bounce back into the middle 90s…

Even with the slight chance for a few pop-up t-storms Wednesday through Friday, the heat and some humidity will stick around for the rest of the week. I am watching another system by the upcoming weekend. If no changes occur with that, we’ll see if it can give us a little break from the heat with some better t-storm chances by the end of the upcoming wekend.

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM
