Perfect weather for the 4th
I don't think the forecast for the 4th could've gotten much better! Most of the state will see temperatures in the low 80s and upper 70s with little to no humidity. Perfect weather regardless if you're headed to a cookout or lounging by the pool/beach. Most of the coast will see a slight onshore breeze and mid 70s. Downeast areas however will experience a bit of a stronger wind (S/SW @ 8-12 mph).
A weak trough will pass through the state throughout the day, so there is a slight chance for a brief spotty shower/thunderstorm in the northern portions of the state during the afternoon. Anything that does pop-up will be small and short lived, so get outside and enjoy the day!
Overnight, temperatures will drop into the mid 50s throughout the state with partly cloudy skies. There is a chance for fog along the southern/southwestern coastal regions.
Scattered showers for Sunday
Temperatures will mostly be in the mid-upper 70s throughout the state with 80s in southwestern regions. Relatively dry conditions will continue with dew points in the upper 50s in northern regions and low 60s everywhere else. Winds will be from the NW and light in the northern regions, while southern regions will see S/SW winds at 5-10 mph.
A slightly stronger cold front will push through the state , bringing some showers and a chance for thunderstorms with it. The largest threat with these storms will be gusty winds.
Temperatures overnight will range from the low 50s in the north to low 60s in the south. There is a chance for fog again along the eastern coastal areas.
This weekend is famously known for fireworks, cookouts and bonfires, but now that the state is beginning to dry out again, it's important to take extra caution if participating in these activities. Dew points and relative humidities will remain fairly low this weekend, despite the chance for a few showers. Be sure to handle bonfires and cookouts with care and take all necessary precautions to avoid the start/spread of a potential wildfire.
