Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Colder air moving in…. Expect cloudy skies with scattered showers this morning as a cold front moves off of the East Coast. Rain will taper off by mid-morning and clouds will clear by midday. The cold front will also bring in cooler air. We will start near 60 early this morning, quickly drop into the low 50s and linger in the low 50s through the afternoon. Winds will ramp up again today with gusts to near 30 mph. Cooler air dominates for the second half of the week with 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: AM Rain, PM Sunshine, Cooler, Windy. Falling from near 60 to near 50. Winds: NW 10-20

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the mid 30s. Winds: NW/N 5-15

Tomorrow: Clouds Building In, PM Rain/Snow, Cooler. Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: N/E 5-10
