Potential for storms postpones fireworks in several towns
MANCHESTER – Today’s hot, humid weather will spawn thunderstorms this afternoon and this evening, some possibly severe. Not every town will get the storms, but folks in Manchester weren’t taking any chances. Early this morning the city postponed the James Dutch Fogarty Independence Day Celebration until tomorrow (Sunday).
Manchester was followed by several other towns that had fireworks scheduled for tonight.
Gathering large groups out in the open with lightning ready to pop up is definitely NOT a smart plan, so be patient and celebrate a little later. Meteorologist Sam Sampieri says Sunday’s looks much less humid with little or no threat of thunderstorms.
