As Southwest Finally Cools, Southeast Gets Drenched
Mark Memmott on July 4th, 2013
The good news from the National Weather Service:
“The Western U.S. will begin to cool on Wednesday after several days of record-high temperatures. Temperatures will still be hot in many locations, but will be closer to normal for this time of year.”
The not-so-good news if you’re in the Southeast and have outdoor plans on Independence Day:
“Much of the Eastern U.S will also experience near-average temperatures on Wednesday, but will have a chance of rain. The Southeast, in particular, will be wet with several inches of rain possible.”
At least the forecast doesn’t include a repeat of what happened Wednesday evening in Santa Rosa, N.M. As The Weather Channel reports, “a lone thunderstorm dumped over a foot of hail in the town.”
