Rain and thunderstorms forecast for the 4th

Rain and thunderstorms forecast for the 4th

By Frank Lewis – flewis@civitasmedia.com

 


If you are planning an outing for the 4th of July, you might want to bring along some extra accessories, like an umbrella and maybe even a raincoat. Even better, you might want to have that cookout under a shelter. That’s because thunderstorms are in the forecast.

A cold front will move through the Eastern U.S. Friday and Friday night, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the eastern seaboard. This frontal boundary is expected to stall across the Ohio Valley into the mid Atlantic region over the weekend. As the weekend progresses, the frontal boundary will become an increasing focus for thunderstorms to develop, especially on Monday the 4th as an area of low pressure moves east along this frontal boundary.

The Independence Day forecast for Scioto County from the National Weather Service is calling for showers with thunderstorms possible after noon. In fact, the percentage of precipitation is 90 percent, with a high of only 77.

The Portsmouth Civic Forum fireworks display is scheduled for after dark on Monday. Gene Arms of Civic Forum said he won’t make a decision on any change of those plans until Saturday.

The precipitation rolls in Friday with the forecast calling for showers and thunderstorms into mid-afternoon with a chance of thunderstorms continuing after 5 p.m., with a high near 85. The chance of precipitation is 70 percent.

The forecast also calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms before 7 p.m. Friday, then a slight chance of showers between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Partly cloudy, with a low around 57.

Mostly sunny Saturday, with a high near 82. Mostly cloudy Saturday night with a low around 60. The forecast calls for a chance of showers mainly after 1 p.m., with a high near 76. Showers likely, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 2 a.m., with a low around 64.
