4th of July Fireworks Forecast
Rain showers currently span from Baltimore, through E. PA and into NWNJ. They will continue to push east in a scattered nature (not widespread) until ultimately fizzling by early evening. Satellite imagery indicates a wall of much drier air moving in (red line) from the WNW in association with sinking high pressure to our west. As a result, the frontal boundary that’s been affecting us all week should temporarily sink to our south, allowing for a cooler and drier period heading into this week.
In English: Expect nuisance conditions (anything from cloudy skies to drizzle/light rain) until about 6PM, felt moreso for interior/NWNJ than coastal/SENJ. Many coastal areas, currently swollen with population, should luck out during the day today. Some will not. After that, everything else remaining should clear in time for fireworks and a beautiful end to the weekend. Be safe! JC
