At Least There's No Smoke in Our Forecast
Here in the D.C. area, some folks are probably disappointed at the threat of thunderstorms for July 4th. On the bright side, though, be happy our forecast doesn't read like that for Nags Head, N.C. (from the National Weather Service):
Today: Areas of smoke before noon. Sunny, with a high near 86. Calm wind becoming south between 12 and 15 mph.
Tonight: Areas of smoke after 11pm. Mostly clear, with a low around 76. South wind between 5 and 13 mph.
The reason for the smoke and unhealthy air quality is the wildfires that continue to burn in eastern North Carolina. For those getting away to the Outer Banks for the holiday, the smoke forecast is uncertain as it will depend on how badly the fires are burning and the strength of winds from the southwest. Otherwise, the weather should be great for the Fourth, but a chance of showers and thunderstorms enters the forecast for late Saturday through Monday.
