DOWNTOWN — The city could be facing a rainy Fourth of July this year.

It will still be warm, though, so don’t worry — the barbecue will go on. High temperatures are expected to hit the mid-80s to low 90s, though it will feel as warm as 103 degrees, said Amy Seeley, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

The normal temperature for Fourth of July in Chicago is 84 degrees, and the record is 102 degrees.

There will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning and afternoon, and the skies are expected to be mostly cloudy, Seeley said.
