Fourth of July weekend forecast: Thunderstorms, maybe

160609-SUNSET-KEVINJBEATY-04

We never got the storms we were promised yesterday, but this Friday morning’s skies are gray and the National Weather Service forecast calls for thunderstorms this afternoon, with highs near 78.

The sun sets and takes us into the weekend at 8:32 p.m.

There’s a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon on Saturday, according to the NWS, when the high will be near 82.  It’ll get hotter and less stormy on Sunday, with a high of 89 and only a 10 percent chance of storms.

And just like our country, the Fourth of July will be young, scrappy and hungry hot and unpredictable. Plan your barbecue somewhere with a little shelter, because the NWS says it will be mostly sunny and up to 91 degrees, with a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms.
