Showers/Thunderstorm Potential on the 4th of July (posted July 3, 2018)
There will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms mainly from Wednesday afternoon, through Wednesday night and into Thursday. The best likelihood of seeing thunderstorms would be late Wednesday evening through the rest of Wednesday night. It is during this time frame where a few of these storms may become strong to severe with damaging winds being the primary threat. In addition, very warm and humid conditions are expected. High temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s away from Lake Michigan, combined with the humidity, will likely generate heat indices from 95 to 100 degrees.
