JULY 4TH (SUNDAY)

By July 4th, we’ll see temperatures warm back into the mid and upper 80s with slightly higher levels of humidity. Rain chances remain very low through the holiday weekend and into early next week.

MONDAY - TUESDAY

After a gorgeous holiday weekend, the weather turns hot again by early next week. Afternoon highs return to the low 90s with increasing humidity. Shower chances remain minimal for the start of the week but increase as the week goes on.

WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY

The second half of the week remains influenced by an approaching cold front along with potential tropical moisture from Elsa. The current forecast has Elsa making landfall along Florida’s west coast by midweek, then moving northward into the Mid-Atlantic Thursday and Friday which would bring a higher chance of rainfall late in the week.

We will know more as the system approaches the United States early in the week. Those headed to the East Coast beaches will certainly want to pay attention to the forecast.

Virginia now in the cone of uncertainty with active weather late in the week possible.
