The long holiday weekend forecast has storms and Sunshine

The weather, currently.

It's the long holiday weekend. Even if you're not taking off tomorrow in full it does begin and hopefully continues for you through Monday. The weather of course is Paramount for many of these weekends. A quick refresher, last year was one of the coldest and wettest July 4th weekends on record. This year is totally different. We have a hot day today with temperatures in the 90s along with some humidity. There might be a few early morning showers on Saturday and then another round of showers and storms in the afternoon. Some of these could be severe with hail and strong winds. Sunday and July 4th are both gorgeous with sunshine and temperatures in the 80s.
