Outdoor activities look best later in the day and evening. The morning run, however, may be wet! Highs will be very cool in the low 70s, well below the average of 85. We do a complete flip to more sunshine, warmer and more humid end to the Fourth of July weekend. Temperatures will jump 10 degrees too.

The heat and humidity start to climb Sunday as a ridge of high pressure takes over. Monday, there is some strong upper level energy expected to pivot in from the south, which will bring clouds and an isolated shower or thunderstorm. Highs will still be seasonal in the mid 80s. Warm and more humid for Tuesday with plenty of sunshine, and, there is only a small shower or thunderstorm chance. A better opportunity for scattered showers and thunderstorms comes with a cold front that swings through Wednesday. No real heat later in the week as highs look to be in the low 80s with dry conditions Thursday and rain chances going up by Friday.

Have a great Fourth with family and friends!
