(KETK) - Tyler, Tx — July 4th is upon us. A few showers are in the forecast, but the KETK weather team does believe that most areas will have a rain-free Independence Day.
Here is Thursday’s edition of “The July Fourth Forecast”…
Friday morning looks to remain quiet for East Texas. In the afternoon, a few showers and storms will be possible. Both the GFS and NAM forecast models have precipitation developing. All of this activity should be in Deep East Texas, Central Texas, and the Brazos Valley.
By late afternoon and into the evening, most of this precipitation should be moving out of the area.
High temperatures on Friday will be in the upper 80s and low 90s. In the northern areas, there will be less humid air in place. For southern counties, it will remain muggy—and this is where the majority of the precipitation should occur. Wind speeds are expected to be out of the east up to 10 mph.
Rain will be widely scattered on Friday. The best chance of rain will be in Deep East Texas—30%, 20% everywhere else. Partly cloudy skies with highs reaching the upper 80s and low 90s. By fireworks time, you can expect a mainly clear to partly cloudy sky, with a very slim chance of a shower or storm. It should be a very nice day, just have an umbrella handy and keep track of the radar via the KETK Mobile App .
