Dry tonight, but rest of Fourth of July weekend looks soggy


  • Showers move in Sunday
  • Chance for thunderstorms Fourth of July
  • Rain totals through Monday could exceed 3 inches


Clouds will continue to push in from the west into the overnight hours, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said.

Temperatures won’t move much, but will slowly drop into the lower to middle 60s. A passing shower is not out of the question, but those chances are slim to none tonight, Collar said.

Sunday: Rain moves in around lunchtime for most, but some spots could see rain before that. There will be a few breaks in the rain, but some locally heavy rain is possible. Highs will be in the lower 70s.

Independence Day: More showers are expected for the Fourth of July and we could see a few thunderstorms as well. Highs will be in the middle to upper 70s, and again locally heavy rain is possible on the holiday.
