Sunshine, Rain, Independence…

Today is the 4th of July – the day that Independence Day is celebrated in the United States of America. We’ve been enjoying some nice sunny weather in Ireland lately, but what are the chances of sunshine in the USA on this date? This article on accuweather.com assesses the last 15 years of weather records in 15 major American cities – and the best advice would seem to be to head to California, as both San Francisco and Los Angeles have been rain-free on this date for the past 15 years!
