Weather: Fair Monday, Stormy on Independence Day


Visibility will be limited between 500 and 1000 until about 9:00 Monday morning due to dissipating fog in parts of the Mediterranean coastal plain. Otherwise, it will be clear to partly cloudy with no significant change in temperature. Temperatures will drop below average under mostly cloudy skies on Tuesday, when scattered showers are expected in the north and center of the country, accompanied by isolated thunderstorms. Winds will intensify, making for the Mediterranean Sea to be moderate to rough and dangerous for swimming. The below-average temperatures will continue through Thursday and the chance of scattered showers in the north and center will continue on Wednesday under partly-cloudy skies. There's also a chance of isolated showers on Thursday, mainly in the north.
