Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Clouds, showers, and a warm up… A stationary front continues to linger over the Mid-Atlantic. Expect mostly cloudy skies again today, with 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 warm slightly, into 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(40%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: SE 5-15

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers/Storms(20%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: SE/S 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Sunny, Isolated Showers/Storms(20%). Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: S 5-15
