Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Very warm and a few storms…. Our up and down temperatures continue today with a big warm up. We will start in the 40s and 50s this morning but warm into the low 80s this afternoon. Expect a nice mix of sunshine and a few clouds during the day. Scattered showers and storms will build in late this afternoon and evening as a cold front moves in. Moisture is limited with this front, so rain will not be widespread. Some storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds and hail possible.

Skies will clear again for Thursday as we start a steady cooling trend. Highs will slip into the low 70s for St. Patrick’s Day with a mix of sun and clouds and just a slim rain chance for a shower. Highs fall into the low 60s on Friday and into the mid 50s this weekend. Rain chances go up for Saturday night and into Sunday.

Today: Partly Cloudy, PM Showers/Storms(30%). Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SE/SW 5-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Showers/Storms(30%). Lows in the mid 50s. Winds: SW/NW 5-15

Tomorrow: A Few Clouds. Highs in the low 70s. Winds: W 5-15
