It's not often that you can say in July "we deserve a dry day". Many years at this time, the state is edging toward fire season. Not this year, not yet. Showers, thunderstorms and cooler than average temperatures will continue through the middle of July. Thursday however, will be a dry and sunny day, bucking the recent trend. Highs will be much warmer too, reaching the 70s and low 80s. A west wind will gust up to around 30mph. Friday will start out mostly sunny and warm but scattered thunderstorms will pop in the afternoon and evening. Independence Day on Saturday will be similar too with sunshine and warm temperatures before scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms. While highs will reach the 70s and low 80s, temperatures will drop with any thunderstorm that passes through. Sunday will be almost a carbon copy: dry and sunny early with afternoon thunderstorms developing. The unrest will continue next week with a chance for afternoon storms almost every day. Temperatures will warm into the mid 80s by next week. However, extreme heat and intense fire danger are unlikely.
Have a great day.
