Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another rain/snow mix… Expect a much nicer forecast to start the workweek. We will see a mix of sun and clouds today with winds relaxing. Highs will reach the upper 40s, near normal for this time of year. Minor coastal flooding is possible at times of high tide this morning. Water levels will relax as winds calm down later today.

We are tracking another area of low pressure and a cold front that will build in for Tuesday. Scattered showers will start to move in tonight and will continue for most of Tuesday. Expect an on and off rain and snow mixture with a better chance for snow north and inland and a better chance for rain south and near the coast. Snow accumulation will be minimal but some light accumulations are possible for the inland Southside, Peninsula, Middle Peninsula, and Eastern Shore. The rain snow mix should move out early Wednesday.

We will see more sunshine for the end of the week but temperatures will be much colder. Expect highs in the 30s for the end of the work week and weekend.

Today: Partly Cloudy, Not as Windy. Highs in the upper 40s. Winds: N/E 5-15
