The forecast for the July 4 holiday weekend was mixed, forecasters said Wednesday, but conditions for fireworks in New York City and the tri-state region are expected to be dry.
The Big Apple is set to get off to a sizzling start on Friday — with an expected high of 91 degrees — before approaching a cold front later in the day and into Saturday, bringing with it a “good chance” of showers and storms for most of the day brings, Fox weather forecaster Seth Darling told The Post.
“The likelihood of showers and storms will continue throughout the day and into Saturday evening,” Darling said. “Saturday is laundry.”
New York, New Jersey and Connecticut should see clearer skies on Sunday, although parts of northern New Jersey may see persistent showers early in the day. But most of the region should be dry by noon.
Sunday seems to be the best bet for beachgoers – especially in the afternoon hours – with a high of 83 degrees under partly cloudy skies and low humidity expected along the coasts. A few showers are possible throughout the day on eastern Long Island beaches, but Sunday’s low in and around New York is around 70 degrees.
“I’d say it’s definitely a beach day,” Darling said.
Monday is also likely to be another good day at the beach, with highs in the mid 80’s and mostly sunny skies. But cloudy conditions later in the day could affect visibility at regional fireworks shows, including Macy’s 46th annual show along the East River, Darling said.
“But we expect Monday to be mostly dry,” he said.
