Although the holiday weekend starts on a stormy note, conditions improve dramatically for July 4th celebrations across the South Shore, including Hingham's famed parade.
After morning storms woke up many early on Saturday, high humidity will be the biggest thing you notice for the rest of the day.
Some partial sunshine will break out during the afternoon, so the day is far from a washout, but it will help fuel a second round of some pop up storms late day.
That second round of storms will eventually usher in a northwest wind that brings in far less humid air for Sunday, which looks like a spectacular day.
Along with low humidity sunshine will dominate, with highs cruising well into the 80s.
Then, for the holiday itself on Monday, we're in for more beautiful weather.
Temperatures will start off in the upper 60s to near 70 for Hingham's Road Race, set to take place before the late morning parade. By parade time temperatures will be near 80.
Make sure to wear sunscreen, as the high UV-index can result in a burn within 15-30 minutes if unprotected from the sun.
