Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

Have outdoor plans this weekend? Sunday is looking better than Saturday.

A cold front will linger along the coast Saturday morning bringing us a good bet for rain during the first half of the day. Some of the wet weather may linger into the afternoon, but the trend is for the rain to move out and the skies to clear. It will be cooler on Saturday behind that cold front with high temperatures in the mid 60s.

Another cold front will move through on Saturday night knocking our temperatures down into the mid 50s on Sunday. The trade-off: a lot more sunshine!

The winds will shift and the temperatures will warm back up on Monday. We expect high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60s with lots of sunshine.

But yet another cold front will roll through on Monday night. That will bring us a slight chance for an overnight shower and then much cooler weather.

High temperatures on Tuesday probably won’t climb out of the 40s for most of us. And the real chill will be when you wake up on Wednesday morning. Many of us will have temperatures at or below the freezing mark!

But it looks like that will be the worst of it. Temperatures will moderate into the 50s and 60s for the rest of the work week.
