Spotty afternoon rain/storm chances will continue into Independence Day.
Today becomes the hottest day of the next 7 with highs reaching the lower to middle 90s in the Upstate and upper 80s in the mountains. A couple of brief afternoon downpours remain possible, but any rain that falls will be short-lived and won’t fall in very many locations.
The 4th of July will be warm and humid with highs in the middle 80s to near 90 with hit and miss afternoon thunderstorms. Most evening firework displays should be able to occur without weather interruption, as the afternoon storm threat dwindles as the sun sets.
Thursday and Friday will bring more scattered to widespread thunderstorms to the area, which will help scale temperatures back into the 80s everywhere.
Saturday looks to be similar to Thursday and Friday as the front causing said rain and thunderstorms exits to the south.
This means that by Sunday and next Monday, rain chances will be more on the ‘little to no’ rain side of the spectrum.
