Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More clouds and showers to start the week… A stationary front will slowly drift over the Mid-Atlantic to start the week, locking in clouds and rain chances. Expect mostly cloudy skies today, with hopefully some sunshine peeking through. Scattered showers and storms will mix in throughout the day. Our severe threat is very low but heavy downpours and lightning are still possible. Highs today will only reach the low to mid 80s.

The front stays over us for Tuesday, keeping the mostly cloudy skies and the scattered showers and storms. Highs tomorrow will return to the mid 80s. The stationary front will slide a little farther north for the second half of the week. That will allow a bit more sunshine to mix in and rain chances to drop slightly. Highs will warm to the upper 80s and near 90 through the weekend.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: NE/E 5-10

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: E 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(40%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: SE 5-15
