Happy Fourth of July!   I hope everyone has enjoyed the last couple of days and has an opportunity to have a fun and safe rest of the weekend.

No pressure with the forecast working out, right?  Overall, I think it does work out for those that are throwing parties/cook outs today as I don't expect a lot of rain.  

This morning I'm tracking two systems, one to our west and one to our south.  The one to our south is mainly a miss with just a few afternoon light showers working in across the Islands and perhaps a passing light shower on the Cape, amid plenty of dry hours.   The system to our west will weaken and dry up as it heads into our area.  There will likely be a few leftover showers (mainly light) from that system that work in to towns across Southwestern NH, western Mass and northern Worcester County, but east of there, other than passing sprinkles/stray light showers, don't expect much water. Bottom line… plenty of dry hours today too as temps top off in the mid 70s on average. Towns that pick up a bit of light rain receive 0.05" or less, so we're not talking a washout, just enough to dampen the ground and make you close the lid on the grill to avoid some drops on those burgers and dogs.   

Tonight, the stray shower/sprinkle chance is gone, and we're all systems go for the fireworks.  While you won't need to rain jacket, you may want to grab that sweatshirt as evening temps for fireworks generally run in the lower 60s.  Enjoy the show! 

We're back to more sunshine tomorrow and Monday with temps in the 80s.  Localized sea breezes run along the shores tomorrow with a refreshing breeze holding temps in the mid to upper 70s on the beach. 

An isolated afternoon storm is possible Tuesday, best chance west of 495, then a better chance of scattered storms rumbling in Wednesday and Thursday. 

Have a great weekend!
