Wear sunscreen: Regardless of the cloud cover, wearing sunscreen outside this summer is a must. Sunscreen protects you from the sun’s harmful UV rays which are present in both sunny and cloudy skies.

Emergency alerts: Enable emergency alerts on your cell phone and download weather apps to ensure you’re notified of watches and warnings.

Have a plan: If your Fourth of July plans include outside activities (like grilling, boating or camping), have a plan of action in case a thunderstorms pops up. Identify indoor locations to seek shelter in case of an emergency.
