NWS: Expect wet Fourth of July weekend


And expect very similar weather daily for the rest of the week. We'll see this forecast for the next few days.

There is a 70% chance for showers and thunderstorms for Thursday and Friday and that will keep our highs in the 80s and lows in the 70s.

For our weekend, Saturday and Sunday look like they will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the mid/ upper 90s and have winds from the south/ southeast at 10-15 miles per hour.

That's when temperatures will be shooting up, along with uncomfortable humidity.

Summer begins showing signs of returning today, but it really doesn't show up until the end of the week.

A cold front will gradually move into the Coastal Empire and Low Country on Sunday before lingering just offshore into Monday. High temperatures will be in the middle to upper 80s through Wednesday. This front will come with many more clouds and afternoon showers. But that doesn't mean the entire Garden State will be wet, he noted. Expect a high in the Omaha area in the mid- to upper 80s.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Saturday night - Partly cloudy, with a low about 65. The high will be 84.

Friday will be mostly sunny to partly sunny.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 95. Friday night will be uncomfortable for sleeping without air conditioning, with lows in the lower 70s!

Thursday will be sunny and warmer. The high will be 89, after a morning low of 72. While hail looks like the biggest threat, it goes without saying that heavy rain and lightning are also likely in any thunderstorm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 67.

Clear tonight with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Tuesday will be partially sunny with a slight risk of a PM shower.

It will be mostly sunny, with a high near 87 on July 4. A few spot showers are possible, although a good part of the day will be dry.
