Big 4th of July holiday coming this week, and the weather looks to be unsettled for much of the week. While the heat continues out west, we will be locked with the chance of showers and thunderstorms. Some of the showers will be very heavy at times, and some thunderstorms could produce some frequent lightning. Unfortunately, the best chance for the rain this week will be Wednesday and Thursday. Currently both have a 60% for showers and thunderstorms.
If you are traveling anywhere along the east coast, the chances are you be wet.
The humid, moist flow that set up across the East will persist through this week, providing fuel for more drenching showers and thunderstorms from Maine through Florida.
Showers and thunderstorms are also extending back into parts of the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, but the number turning heavy and severe will be more localized than those to the east.
