A Sunny Independence Day

BALTIMORE — Happy Independence Day! The perfect weather is on tap for us as we sit in the 80s with mostly sunny skies. Humidity stays on the manageable side for us but slowly begins to creep up towards the evening time. This will not affect any firework shows, so get out there and enjoy. The rest of the work week we see a chance of thunder showers thanks to a muggy setup. This has prompted the Storm Prediction Center to place most of the state under a Slight (2/5) risk with damaging winds and hail being the biggest threat. There is the chance this does not come to fruition thanks to the NW flow of drier air and the mountains drying out the storms. The next best chance for widespread showers looks to be Friday.
