MM’s Thurs Wx Forecast for July 7

Wx Summary

Scattered shower and storm chances continue through Saturday, as a series of disturbances move through. By Saturday, a cold front will move in and bring the greatest chance for rain in this five-day forecast period. Any storm that develops from now through Saturday could be strong or even briefly severe. Behind the front, rain chances lower for Sunday (go ahead and make outdoor plans). By Monday, mostly sunny skies and lower humidity will make for a pleasant July day.
