We track very low wind gusts, a mostly clear night, and temperatures in the low 70s by midday.

Besides an isolated shower possible late this afternoon and early this evening, it is shaping up to be a perfect Fourth of July forecast.

Highs today return to the low 70s.

This is still below average for July 4th, but not really all that much cooler compared to last year.

Slight chances of rain stay in the forecast through Friday.

A few more widespread showers are possible across the Hi-Line and northeast this weekend.

We may see a few of those weekend storms become strong to severe.

Temperatures return closer to average through the weekend, but another cool down returns early next week.
