Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More rain and tidal flooding… An area of low pressure will linger off of the Virginia coast today keeping us under clouds skies with rain throughout the day. Rain will become more scattered this afternoon and evening. Minor tidal flooding is expected again today but at lower levels than yesterday. High tides today are near 9:30 AM and 10:00 PM. Temperatures today will struggle to reach 60 degrees.

Rain showers are possible this weekend but not as soggy as today. Expect mostly cloudy skies with a few glimpses of sunshine and a few leftover showers on Saturday as the area of low pressure moves out. More sunshine should mix in for Sunday with lower rain chances. Highs will warm into the low 70s on Saturday and upper 70s on Sunday. Tide levels will continue to fall, closer to normal this weekend.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Rain(80%). Highs near 60. Winds: N/NW 5-10
