Dear Long Islander,
We’re just a day away from the summer’s biggest holiday! Tomorrow’s the Fourth of July, and that means LI will be full of parades, barbecues, picnics, and fireworks! Unfortunately the forecast calls for rain during the day which could dampen spirits through the morning and afternoon. Nassau County and much of Suffolk could be in the clear just in time for nighttime fireworks displays, but rain clouds are likelier to linger further east. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, but whether you’re outside or indoors LongIsland.com wishes you a happy Independence Day!
