Mornings, July 2 - 6

We’ve got sunshine, heat, and glorious music on the way. With a stable air mass in place, there's just a slight risk for an isolated minor key concerto or breathtakingly tender poem late in the mornings.

The threat of thunderstorms, canon fire, and musical fireworks increases Tuesday as we inch toward the Fourth of July. (We'll see if they appear as we get closer to the holiday. Stay tuned.)
