With thunderstorms ushering in July, unlike much of the East Coast, skies around Cleveland should clear in time for the Fourth of July holiday.
Temperatures will remain in the low 70s through the holiday.
The record high temperature for the city on the Fourth of July is approximately 98 F, but the normal high is 83 F. This Fourth of July, Cleveland is expected to be cooler than normal with highs in the low 70s, nearly 10 degrees below normal.
From 1999 to 2013, the city has experienced five rainy July Fourth holidays, but this year does not appear to be joining those.
On Friday, skies are expected to be clear with plenty of sunshine, ideal conditions for those celebrating the holiday and with plans to watch evening fireworks.
However, those headed to visit the East Coast's beaches for the holiday may not be as lucky as Tropical Storm Arthur takes form in the Atlantic.
As Tropical Storm Arthur continues to develop through the first week of July, there is a chance that it could spoil outdoor festivities and beach days due to the risk of downpours and rough surf.
"If the tropical system takes a northeastward turn late in the week, as we suspect, rain and thunderstorms will begin to shift eastward and out to sea Friday afternoon and evening, so that the weather improves for fireworks Friday night from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia and New York City," AccuWeather Long-Range Expert Paul Pastelok said.
As the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center continues to track Tropical Storm Arthur, the system may become the season's first hurricane by the end of the week.
While parts of the East Coast experience rough surf and rain, the holiday weekend in Cleveland will be full of sunshine and patchy clouds.
The city's next chance for rain will come on Sunday night.
