July 4th Forecast: Typical Summer Weather


If you are wondering how the weather forecast is shaping up in your area for the upcoming Fourth of July weekend, you’ve come to the right place. Typical summer weather is expected for much of the U.S. with scattered showers and thunderstorms from parts of the Southwest to the central to eastern U.S., according to NOAA forecasters.

Warm, humid temperatures for some

Slightly above-normal temperatures are anticipated to stretch from the northern Rockies and Great Plains to the Great Lakes and Northeast, while much of the West is expected to experience near-average to below-average temperatures. Residents in these regions should try their best to stay hydrated and cool throughout the holiday weekend. Areas of the Gulf Coast and Southeast will also experience slightly below average temperatures but, unlike the West, high humidity will be the rule in the South. If you are seeking cooler weather this weekend, head for Lake Superior or the Cascade Mountains of Washington State.

Heavy rain, severe thunderstorms for others

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms, with locally high winds and some hail, may impact metropolitan areas from Washington D.C. to Boston on Saturday before a cold front clears much of the Northeast by Sunday morning.
