Track rain and storms in your neighborhood with the NewsChannel 3 Interactive Radar HERE.
Tracking showers and storms….As we move through this holiday weekend, some of us will have to dodge a few showers and thunderstorms. Will the weekend be a washout? No ma’am, no sir! However, have your rain gear handy and have a back up plan just in case storms move in your area. This weather is all courtesy of a stationary front draped over the area. So, on this Independence Day, expect highs in the upper 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. Scattered showers and storms are possible this afternoon and evening, and again, the word to keep in mind is scattered. Any storms that develop could produce heavy rain and minor flooding. Tonight, around fireworks time, we’ll have a 30-40% chance of showers and storms. Be VIPIR Ready for storms to develop quickly.
