HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY...
Hazy skies and warm temperatures will highlight the rest of the holiday weekend. The haze is actually smoke from Canadian forest fires that has spread all the way to the Midwest. Despite the smoke, temperatures will be warmer and highs should approach 90 later today and remain at that level through Tuesday.
