We’ll enjoy temperatures below 90 and with more comfortable dew points Friday and Saturday. The risk of some showers and thunder increases late Saturday.
A dry, more comfortable break
Friday will be frankly, gorgeous. Highs will be in the 70s north, low to mid-80s south, and importantly, lower dew points in the 40s and 50s.
Saturday will again be comfortable but high clouds will increase late in the day ahead of possible thunderstorms.
Thunderstorm chances over the holiday weekend
The long holiday weekend will not be 100 percent dry. But, for those needing rain it likely also will not completely deliver. Late Saturday into Saturday night brings the chance of at least some spotty shower and thunder activity.
The Fourth of July holiday (Monday) itself also has a risk of some thunderstorms.
The nature of any shower/thunder activity in this pattern is hit and miss rather than an all-day or night washout, so, by far, there will be many more dry hours with some sun than rainy hours.
