This morning will start off clear and mild with rain that moved through late last night finally moving out of southeast Kentucky. Thunderstorms hit the area hard, leaving thousands of National Grid customers without utility service. As it does, we will see increasing cloud cover ahead of a warm front.

Canada Day meanwhile looks like showers in the morning, risk of T-storms in the afternoon, with a high of 24 C, feeling like 32 because of the humidity. Some storms could be severe, especially between the hours of 7 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday.

Tuesday night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 1 a.m. High: 94. Monday-4th of July: Partly Sunny and Hot. Southwest wind 5 to 8 miles per hour. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected, and the low will be around 70.

Thursday: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mostly sunny, high near 84. West wind 3 to 6 miles per hour. Thunder possible. High 83F. A second cold front will pass through in the evening with a stray shower, but most will just see some patchy clouds. Some of those storms may have gusty winds, heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. Cloudy, with a high near 78. South wind 7 to 11 miles per hour.

Tuesday - Showers early then scattered thunderstorms developing later in the day. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 61. Winds will be light out of the west-southwest.

Tonight: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly before 8 p.m.

There's a moderate risk of risky rip currents forming Friday afternoon along the entire Jersey Shore, from Sandy Hook down to Cape May, because southerly winds will be gusting to 25 to 30 miles per hour. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 69. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

Thursday night - A chance of showers and thunderstorms.

There's less chance of storms Sunday, with high temperature near 87 degrees.

Partly cloudy skies will carry over into Sunday night, with a low around 63.

Saturday, it will be sunny with a high near 85, the weather service said, and a northwest wind of 3 to 6 miles per hour. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 72 degrees.

Next week, the heat will continue with highs in the low 90s through July 4th and probably beyond, but storm chances do look a little bit lower through the holiday.
