July 4th Evening: Storms will pop, but fade before firework time

Weather

Tonight: Thunderstorms will pop, but fade just in time for those evening fireworks. The rest of the evening will quiet and mild. Lows near 74.

Tomorrow: Once again, we’ll be looking at more oppressive heat. Feel-like temperatures will climb to 105°. Skies will be mostly sunny. Highs near 96.

Also, Friday will be an Ozone Action Day. A combination of Saharan dust and pollution from evening fireworks will increase particle levels. Limit afternoon outdoor activity.

Extended: This weekend will be stifling. Expect massive amounts of sunshine and high humidity levels. Heat indices will reach 105° or greater. Daytime highs will jump into the upper 90s. Rain chances climb heading into early next week.
