Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A midweek warm up… If you liked yesterday’s weather, then you should enjoy today’s. Expect highs in the low to mid 80s today, slightly warmer than yesterday. Expect a few extra clouds this morning then plenty of sunshine. Winds will relax for today with east winds at 5 to 10 mph.

We will warm into the upper 80s on Wednesday before a cold front moves in. The front could trigger a few isolated showers/storms late Wednesday and into Thursday. Highs will slip into the upper 70s, behind the front, for the end of the work week. Expect a mix a sun and clouds with an isolated shower possible for Thursday and Friday.

Today: Sun & Clouds. Highs in the low to mid 80s. Winds: E 5-10

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: SE/SW 5-10

Tomorrow: A Few Clouds, Isolated PM Showers (20%), Warmer. Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: SW 5-10
