Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another nice day… Sunny skies return today with highs in the upper 60s and lighter winds. Clouds will start to build in this afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west. The front will bring in rain late tonight and through Wednesday morning. Skies will clear Wednesday afternoon with temperatures lingering in the low to mid 50s. Winds will also ramp up again for tomorrow with gusts to near 30 mph. Cooler air dominates for the second half of the week. Expect highs in the 50s and 40s from Thursday through the weekend. We are watching another front and area of low pressure for the end of the work week. Rain showers will start to build in Thursday evening and will continue for most of Friday. Snow will try to mix in overnight Thursday into Friday morning as temperatures dip into the 30s. This looks like mainly a rain event for us but some of our northern and inland areas could see snow mix in. Most of the snow from this system will be closer to Richmond and Washington D.C.

Today: Partly Cloudy. Highs in the upper 60s. Winds: E/S 5-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Overnight Showers(40%). Lows in the mid 50s. Winds: S 10-20

Tomorrow: AM Rain(60%), PM Clearing. Highs in the low 50s. Winds: W/NW 10-20+
