The weather we have had in the area has been hot and sticky, to say the least, and it appears we are going to have a few more days of unsettled skies. Last week's Canadian Fire Smoke and our own humid New York July weather have been cooking up some pretty unpleasant conditions.

The forecast for the next 48 hours could have an effect on some of the things you have planned to celebrate the 4th of July Holiday. According to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) today along with tomorrow we can expect the possibility of a strong storm or two to roll through during the late afternoon and evening hours.
