A cold front dropping southward across North Carolina brought heavy thunderstorms across the area in late Sunday evening. The very hot and humid weather we experienced during the day Sunday ahead of the front (it was 95 in Greenville!) has provided the instability to enhance the rainfall amounts from some of the larger storms. Behind the front there will be lingering cloudiness and a few showers overnight into early Monday as well as some areas of fog.. There are also some hints that a few showers could pop up again Monday afternoon, especially over the southern half of ENC along the stalled boundary over the region.

Overall the 4th of July will be seasonably warm and it looks like fireworks weather may turn out okay. Winds will be from the east which is unusual for a 4th of July fireworks evening. So, plan to watch the fireworks from a different location than usual or else smoke may hinder your view.

Easterly winds may also blow smoke from the Hyde County fire westward toward Washington and Greenville for the 4th.
