THE HUMIDITY RETURNS ALONG WITH THE THREAT FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
A warm front pushes north overnight and could clip the area with an isolated shower or thunderstorm, especially in our northwest counties. It will also bring in a more humid and unstable environment. Dew Point Trend 24 Hours RPM MODEL - NOW

Lows will start in the low to mid 60s. Later in the day, a cold front approaches and triggers showers and thunderstorms, some of which may be strong. There is only a small chance they become severe, with damaging winds the main concern. High temperatures climb close to seasonal averages in the mid 80s. It will likely be the only day to get close to average for the next several, as it looks like temperatures will hover in the low 80s, for the rest for the week.

FOURTH OF JULY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
A frontal boundary hovering just south of PA will remain stalled. Areas of low pressure develop along it bringing a threat for showers and thunderstorms. Timing of these disturbances are difficult, as well as placement. Right now it appears a few showers and thunderstorms are possible for Wednesday but isolated chances for Thursday and Friday. A stronger wave will drag the cold front through the area Saturday but that means showers and thunderstorms for the holiday. As of now, it looks like most of the storm threat will be in the afternoon and evening. Fireworks may be delayed just a bit but should go off with no issues as dry weather works into the area. Highs will be in the low 80s.

SUNDAY SUNSHINE
