NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - While rain chances have decreased for this afternoon, we could still see a few isolated showers or a weak thunderstorm.

We start off this 4th of July on a dry note but some patchy fog is possible throughout the Midstate this morning. While most everyone will be dry all day, we could see a few spotty rain showers and a handful of isolated thunderstorms throughout the day.

The chance of rain is 20% and will be greatest south of I-40. It will be a mostly cloudy day, so high temperatures will only make it to the upper 80s. Maybe a few 90º readings in some areas. The fireworks forecast is looking good.
