4th of July Weekend Forecast - Doesn't Look all that Terrible

Many may be spending time outdoors this holiday weekend as we get ready to celebrate the 4th of July.  And for most, the weekend isn't looking all that terrible.

We should be done with the heavy rainfall from the days prior and temperatures should be fairly comfortable in the upper 70's and low 80's.  On Saturday a cold front will move in from the north and could trigger an isolated shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon and early evening.  The same may occur for Sunday, but high pressure at the surface may be able to overcome any rain trying to form.  So for both Saturday and Sunday I put the percentage for rain at twenty percent.

Pattern then turns a little more active for the beginning of next week with another low pressure system gradually moving in from the southwest.  Forecast models differ just a little on where exactly this low will travel and how far north it will move.  But it looks like rain/storms are possible Monday, but should be shifting southward for the fourth.
