Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Dense fog and storms… Watch out for widespread dense fog this morning. Many areas are seeing visibility less than one mile. Expect mostly cloudy skies today with rain and storms chances increasing this afternoon. Any showers this morning will be light and isolated but expect storms to fire up this afternoon. Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain, gusty winds and possible hail. Highs today will return to the low and mid 70s, cooler north and warmer south.

Mostly cloudy skies remain for Thursday but rain/storm chances will be lower. An isolated shower is possible tomorrow but most of the day will just be cloudy with some sunshine possible.

A cold front will move through for Friday, increasing our chances for showers and thunderstorms again. Strong to severe storms are possible for Friday afternoon and evening. Highs will climb into the upper 70s on Friday before the front moves through.
