A Hot 4th Of July

Temperatures will soar into the lower 90s as we celebrate the 4th of July in eastern North Carolina.

It will be a typical Independence Day across eastern North Carolina as the heat continues.  Highs should reach into the lower 90s  inland and upper 80s along the beaches.  In looking at weather records around July 4th, there have been few days when the temperatures stayed below 90°.  In that respect this July 4th will be about what you would expect.  The difference may be that the risk of thunderstorms will be almost non-existent on Saturday.  I've been through several July 4 fireworks displays that got rained out.  It looks like we'll have better luck this year.  Weather conditions will begin to change by the end of the weekend.  Clouds will increase on Sunday and there is a much better chance for thunderstorms by the afternoon.  The wetter weather pattern will continue into early next week as temperatures cool into the upper 80s and the cloud cover persists.
