Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Warmer start to the week… Expect mostly cloudy skies this morning with a few sprinkles possible and temperatures mainly in the mid to upper 40s. We will warm into the low 70s this afternoon with more sunshine mixing in. Highs will return to near 70 tomorrow before a cold front moves in. That front will bring us a chance for rain, mainly for the midday and afternoon hours. A few showers could linger into early Wednesday with clearing skies as the front moves off of the coastline. It will be much cooler behind the front with highs in the mid 50s for Wednesday. Highs will stay in the 50s and low 60s to finish the work week with a nice mix of sun and clouds.

Today: Mostly to Partly Cloudy, Stray Showers (10%), Breezy. Highs in the low 70s. Winds: SW 10-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Breezy. Lows in the upper 50s. Winds: SW 10-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Rain (70%), Breezy. Highs near 70. Winds: SW/N 10-15
