A rainy forecast for Sunday and Monday is forcing many fireworks displays to be postponed.

The National Weather Service is calling for two rounds of rainfall on both days, which could possibly include heavy rainfall.

The City of Portsmouth announced its display scheduled for Monday at Leary Field has been postponed until Wednesday.  The performances and kids activities planned for the day are still on, according to the city.

A parking ban is also in effect starting at noon on two dozen streets in Portsmouth. There is also a ban on parking in the South Mill Pond playground parking lot starting at 10 a.m. due to its proximity to the fireworks launch area.

Limited accessible parking will be available at the Public Library. The Foundry Garage will charge a Pre-Pay $5 fee on entry, and the Hanover Parking Garage will charge a Pre-Pay $10 fee on entry for parking during the hours of 3 pm and 9 pm on Wednesday, July 5.

No fireworks, including sparklers, are allowed at Leary Field. The city also warned of heavy traffic and delays as people head home once the display is over.
