Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More rain to finish the week… An area of low pressure will slide off of the coastline today but still close enough to keep clouds and showers over eastern VA and NC. Expect mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers through today. Watch out for a few areas of dense fog this morning. Our threat for severe storms will be much lower today but a stray rumble of thunder is still possible. Highs will only reach to near 70 with light winds from the north.

Another area of low pressure will move in for Thursday and will slide off of the NC coast on Friday. Expect a mix of clouds with scattered showers and a slim chance for storms both days. Highs will cool into the mid 60s both days with winds from the northeast.

Rain chances will drop for the weekend with more sunshine mixing in. Highs will warm into the low 70s on Saturday and upper 70s on Sunday.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers(50%), Stray Storms. Highs near 70. Winds: N 5-10

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers(30%). Lows in the mid 50s. Winds: NE 5-10
