The Independence Day Forecast
Going to a parade, picnic, party or fireworks this Independence Day? As most of the fun takes place outdoors, make sure you’re weather-ready by checking the forecast before you head out. The beaches will be full of happy beach-goers in the West and Northeast with sunshine and seasonal temperatures. A few storms are possible in the coastal areas of the South and Southeast.
The weather looks good out West for the Fourth of July. From the Pacific Northwest to Northern Rockies and down through the Southwest, it’s likely to be dry and warm. Sunny, warm weather is expected in the East with slightly cooler-than-normal temperatures across the Great Lakes into New England. The Southeast will have typical summer weather with scattered thunderstorms possible over much of the region.
A cold front stretching across the mid section of the country will create scattered showers and thunderstorms. A stalled front in the Middle Atlantic will also produce a few showers and storms. High pressure in the West and Northeast will keep the tranquil weather on-going.
Fireworks should go off without any weather problems in most of the West and Northeast. There could be a few rain issues in the Plains and Middle Atlantic.
