Happy Independence Day to all! Enjoy the freedom of this nation to freely exercise the freedom that is found in Jesus Christ. The LORD our God is the author of Liberty. Our life is found in Him. Our freedom is found in Him. For He is the One who sets us free.
Weather for the 4th looks really nice. But today looks damp, esp. this afternoon. Not a washout, but showers and maybe a rumble of thunder will be scattered to numerous later today. Some sunshine this morning, will lead to more clouds and brief showers throughout the area as an upper low slowly moves away. Sunday should turn out mostly sunny with building clouds and perhaps a sprinkle in a locale here and there but over-all beautiful.
The heat surges back starting Mon and last through Wed. Like last week, Wed should be the worst of the heat.
Then do we have a tropical storm (Hurricane Elsa now but will weaken) bringing rain into our area by Thursday? Maybe. Maybe not. I lean toward no, as it ought to just miss us to the SE but a frontal boundary may be hung up over our area, leading to numerous showers and storms making for some heavy soaking rains.
Then cooler for a brief time. I expect the heat to try and move back in again. As has happened so far this summer: the models in the long range show a great cooling coming for several days ... only for it to take longer to get here, and it lasts for a couple of days. So the models have been understating the heat. They are doing it again for next week (example: Tue, VBS day Camp was looking like 80 at 7 days away, then it went to upper 80's, now it looks like low 90's. 12+ degree change in 5 days? Oops)
