NEW YORK — Thunderstorms are rolling into the city for Independence Day morning, but skies will mostly clear in time for the evening fireworks, forecasters said.

The city will see a mix of sun and clouds, along with a severe thunderstorm or two, throughout Wednesday morning and afternoon, according to AccuWeather.com. The mercury will rise to 91 degrees, with a 90 percent chance of strong storms.

By nightfall, the storm clouds will mostly blow away, and the skies will clear, according to AccuWeather.com. Any early-evening thunderstorms will likely occur before 9 p.m., when the Macy's fireworks shoot off over the Hudson River, forecasters said.

On Wednesday evening, the temperature will fall to 76 degrees, AccuWeather.com reported.
