Thunderstorms on the 4th??

So, currently weather.com is predicting "isolated thunderstorms" for the 4th in South Lake Tahoe. Do any of the locals have experience with this type of weather and do you know if it's likely that they will cancel the fireworks? Would appreciate any insight. Thanks!

The thunderstorms usually happen during the afternoon or early evening, but not usually much after dark.

The fireworks are later, after everything cools down a bit when it's dark.

I wouldn't worry about that. I would be more worried about the traffic and finding a place to park.

Thunderstorms hit between 2 & 6 PM . Sometimes something, sometimes nothing. There is only a 30% chance at 5 PM and a 10% chance at 8 PM.

Would you cancel your trip?

Oh, good heavens, no, we wouldn't cancel...just trying to plan ahead as much as possible. :)
