July 4th Weather for Memorial Day

Near-record warm weather is the headline through Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday will be the warmest of the set. Some very old record highs are possible. See the RWC Weekly Climate Page for details. Rain will be scarce; however, I included the mention of a stray afternoon thundershower today and Thursday. A front from the west moves through Thursday night bringing a retreat from near-record high temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

An unseasonably strong Bermuda High extends into the Southeast. A front just to our north today is bullied toward New England by Wednesday. Today is warm with just the "barely worth mentioning" potential for an afternoon thundershower. Tuesday and Wednesday are dry with near-record high temperatures.

A front from the west moves through Thursday evening. Stalls to our south and east Friday; then fades off the map this weekend. Thursday is still unseasonably warm with a stray afternoon thundershower possible.

Friday through the weekend have temperatures above seasonal averages but less warm than the first half of the week. With the remnant of the front nearby, I kept the mention of a thundershower in each day--not significant to cancel any outdoor plans.
