Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Storms return later this week… Get ready for another nice day today. Expect sunshine with just a few clouds mixing in. Highs will reach to near 80, just a small step warmer than yesterday. It will still be a bit breezy as winds shift from the west to north to east throughout the day.

Clouds will increase overnight tonight and into Wednesday morning as a warm front builds in. This is just the start of an unsettled second half of the work week. Expect scattered showers and storms Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Some storms could be strong to severe. Highs will climb into the mid 80s Wednesday and upper 80s on Thursday. Rain chances and temperatures will drop as we head into the weekend.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the mid to upper 60s. Winds: E/S 5-10
