The forecast wil remain an unsettled one. The pattern features the leftovers of a trough across our part of the country. This area of unsettled weather will likely be slow to lift out, and this will result in scattered showers and thunderstorms on a daily basis through Saturday. A trough will push into the Upper Midwest by Sunday, and this will kick out the pocket of upper level energy, but it may generate one final round of showers and thunderstorms into Sunday.
After Sunday the pattern will quiet down for Monday into Tuesday as the storm track shifts further north. Hotter temperatures will come with the drier pattern with low 90s possible Monday, and maybe into Tuesday. By Tuesday another front will try to drop south into the area. This should lead to another period of unsettled weather from Tuesday afternoon through the rest of next week. The bad news is that the unsettled weather will likely linger through the 4th, but there are signs that hotter and drier conditions will follow for at least part of the rest of the holiday weekend. And, models are still hinting at a more sustained period of hotter and drier conditions after the 4th.
