Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another round of storms on the way… Watch out for fog again this morning, but not as widespread and dense as yesterday. We will see mostly cloudy skies today but rain/storm chances will be lower. An isolated shower is possible today but most of the day will just be cloudy with some sunshine possible this afternoon. Highs today will return to the low and mid 70s.

A cold front will move through for Friday, increasing our chances for showers and thunderstorms, especially for the afternoon hours. Strong to severe storms are possible for Friday afternoon and early evening, with gusty winds, heavy downpours and hail possible. Highs will climb into the upper 70s on Friday before the front moves through.

Another cold front will move in for Saturday night so a scattered shower or storm is possible but chances will be lower than Friday. Expect highs in the 70s on Saturday but cooling into the 60s on Sunday, behind the front.

Today: AM Fog, Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers(20%). Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: NE/E 5-10

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers(20%). Lows in the low 60s. Winds: E/S 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, PM Showers/Storms(60%). Highs in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-15
