INTO THE HOLIDAY: Fourth of July is just a touch warmer with lows in the low-70s and highs in the low-90s area-wide. We’re staying humid with dew points in the 60s across most of the area under mostly sunny skies. Thunderstorm chances start in the afternoon and early evening of Tuesday, but storms will be isolated in nature. Not everyone will see storms, but everyone has an equal chance of seeing an isolated thunderstorm. Chances are low.

THUNDERSTORMS END OF THE WEEK: More storms are possible Wednesday in a setup similar to Tuesday. Highs stay in the upper-80s and low-90s. Better chances for thunderstorm activity area-wide starts Thursday afternoon with equal chances Friday and Saturday afternoons as well. These will be strong.
