Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More rain and storms… A stationary front remains stalled over the Mid-Atlantic. Expect mostly cloudy skies with on and off showers today. A few thunderstorms are possible, especially for this evening and tonight. Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy downpours, gusty winds and small hail possible. Afternoon temperatures will reach into the upper 60s and near 70. Like yesterday we will see warmer temperatures to the SW (south of the stationary front) and cooler temperatures to the NE (north of the stationary front).

The string of fronts will move off of the coast on Friday. We will still see a few showers with a mix of clouds. Highs will return to near 70. A bit more sunshine will mix in for Saturday with a lower rain chance. Showers and storms will build in for Sunday as our next weather system moves in from west to east. Highs will remain in the 60s and low 70s this weekend.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(60%). Highs in the upper 60s. Winds: NE/E 5-10

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(70%). Lows in the upper 50s. Winds: NE 5-10
