Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Cold front brings storms… Expect mostly cloudy skies today with some sunshine blending in at times. Scattered showers and storms are possible throughout the day as a cold front moves through from NW to SE. The best chances for rain will be midday through the afternoon. A strong to severe storm is possible but the “bulls eye” for severe is more for central and northern VA. Highs today will only reach the low 80s.

A leftover shower or storm is possible on Wednesday as the cold front moves off of the North Carolina coastline. Expect partly cloudy skies overall with an isolated shower or storm possible. Highs will return to the mid 80s tomorrow. Rain chances will remain isolated for Thursday as the string of fronts linger to our south.

Storm chances will increase again for Friday and the weekend as the front to our south starts to drift north and another cold front builds in. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(60%). Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SW 5-10

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Lows near 70. Winds: SW/W 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers(20%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: W/N/E 5-10
