A rather complex weather pattern will continue across the region into the holiday weekend. Disturbances aloft will ride the northwest flow and with each passing wave...a round of thunderstorms will develop. As evidenced by the past few days...not everyone will see these...but where they do develop some will be strong-to-severe. A cold front will drop south on Thursday...further enhancing our shower-and-thunderstorm chance for Thursday and Thursday night. Behind the front much of the region may see high temperatures in the upper 70s for both Friday and Saturday...with additional showers and thunderstorms from late Friday into the weekend. Precipitation chances should dwindle by Sunday night and into Independence Day Monday...with readings warming back into the low-mid 80s for Sunday and mid 80s to around 90 for the holiday. The rain chance for Sunday night and Monday is only 20%.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT Variable cloudiness with a 40% chance for showers and thunderstorms...some 'storms may be strong-to-severe. Southeast winds of 5 to 15 mph. Lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
THURSDAY Partly to mostly cloudy with a continued 40% chance for showers and thunderstorms. East winds of 5 to 15 mph...with gusts to 20 or 25 mph at times. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for showers and thunderstorms. East winds of 5 to 10 mph. Lows again in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
