Scattered showers likely for Fourth of July

Posted: Updated:

Showers could impact part of the Fourth of July celebrations on Saturday afternoon and evening.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said the day won’t be a washout but scattered showers are possible from 10 a.m. into the afternoon.

“During the morning, clouds will thicken and, by late morning, a few showers will move into the western part of our state from Upstate New York,” Cameron said.

He said by the dinner hour showers will have dissipated and moved east, so outdoor evening activities and fireworks will likely not be affected by the rain.

Temperatures will drop into the 50s on Saturday night and areas of fog will likely form, especially where the ground is wet, Cameron said.

Sunday will feature mostly sunny skies and the humidity will drop.

“Temperatures will likely reach the mid-80s Sunday afternoon,” Cameron said. “So, perhaps Sunday is the better day for setting the “slip ‘n slide” and the barbecue.”
