Our phenomenal stretch of dry, sunny weather that started last weekend appears to be showing signs of ending today as we move into the heart of the Independence Day holiday weekend. A storm system to the west is producing a narrow line of rain showers that will affect many of us for our Friday with another dose of showers and thunderstorms possible late tonight. Another round may develop late tomorrow or tomorrow evening with a larger amount of rain and thunderstorm activity likely during the day Sunday as that system moves into our area. Another system may produce heavy rainfall Tuesday as it moves through and drags a cold front through the region. Behind that front, things looks a bit drier and less humid again for Wednesday through next Friday.
Right now while we enjoy the longest stretch of rain-free weather so far this calendar year, we’re still 15.07 inches of rain above normal for the year with a total of 30.76 inches registered in 2013 thus far.
