Weather Forecast for Beach Vacation July 2019

I am planning a vacation to Rehoboth Beach Delaware the week of July 21st. Will the weather be good? Or should I think of another week? I could also do the week of August 4th.
I appreciate your feedback!

Rehoboth Beach

The first few days of the July 21 period are predicted to be sunny and cool, followed by scattered showers and warm temps beginning on July 26. The week of August 4 is almost exactly the same prediction, with thunderstorms instead of scattered showers forecast.

March 12-18?

The last two years as I have traveled from Maine to Pigion Forge TN there had been major snowstorms that cancelled my flights and almost made me miss my singing competition. Should I expect it to happen again this year?
