Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

The storms may be gone, but we may not be done with the wet weather just yet.

A fast-moving area of low pressure will spin by to our south on Wednesday morning. It may get close enough to bring us a few showers for the morning commute.

But after the rain moves out we expect more sunshine to move in during the afternoon. However it will be 10 to 15° cooler than on Tuesday, with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

It gets even cooler on Thursday, with highs only in the low-to-mid 40s, despite lots of sunshine.

But we begin a warming trend on Friday, with high temperatures near 50.

And the coming weekend will be the polar (pun intended) opposite of last weekend. We’ll enjoy highs in the 60s with lots of sunshine.
