The show will go on! According to Huntsville’s Fire Chief Greg Mathis and Assistant Fire Chief John Hobbs, the Fourth of July fireworks display will take place Wednesday evening.
“We are watching forecasts and hope to see the weather clear out by nightfall,” Hobbs said. “The event will only be cancelled if severe weather occurs. We anticipate getting the show started shortly after 9 p.m., even if it is raining.”
According to the Houston office of the National Weather Service, the high will be 88 degrees on Independence Day, with a 70 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Rain is expected to begin early Wednesday but will taper off by nightfall, with a low of 73.
