Fourth of July Forecast, July 4, 2024

As dangerous Hurricane Beryl stays to our south, we'll see some drier air on Thursday. And as a result, rain chances stay low for July Fourth.

Temperatures will stay near 90 degrees through the holiday weekend, with the heat index topping the triple digits. Please remember to stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade and air conditioning as you are celebrating this holiday weekend

Good boating will prevail across the region with seas between 1 to 3 feet. The only exception will be higher winds and seas in and around scattered storms.

However, there will be a risk of rip currents, so please be careful to swim at guarded beaches
