Meteorologist April Loveland’s First Warning Forecast

Tracking showers in your community with the News 3 Interactive Radar HERE.

Some scattered rain, gusty winds and tidal flooding. This is all due to a low pressure system offshore. The low will get a bit stronger which means strong northeast winds 15-25 + mph…with higher gusts possible along the coast. We definitely want to keep an eye on high tide at Sewells Point this evening, which is 8:11 pm, because tidal flooding is possible. Showers will diminish late with lows in the mid-60s.

We’ll continue with breezy conditions on Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid- 70s. Winds will be out of the northeast between 15 to 25 mph. Father’s day will feature less wind and mostly sunny skies. Highs in the upper 70s. So, a great day for Dad!

While the weekend will trend a bit below normal, next week our highs will trend near normal to a little above, with temperatures in the 80s.  Next chance for showers and storms on Wednesday.


Friday night: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers Possible Early (40%). Low temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: NE 20-30+ mph.

Saturday: Sun and Clouds. Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: NE 15-25+ mph.
