Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Severe storms possible…. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds today with storms on the way by sunset. Highs will climb into the low 90s before a cold front moves in. The front will also bring us a chance for scattered showers and storms. Most of the rain will move in late this afternoon and evening. Some storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds and heavy rain at times. It will be a windy day overall, with SW winds at 10 to 15 mph.

Temperatures will stay warm through midweek with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. Another chance for storms will move in on Thursday and should clear Friday morning. Temperatures will cool and skies will clear just in time for the weekend.

Today: Partly Cloudy, PM Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Highs in the low 90s. Winds: SW 10-20

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(40%). Lows in the low 70s. Winds: SW 10-15
