Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A fall-like week ahead… Temperatures will be very seasonal and consistent this week. Highs will reach the mid to upper 70s, near normal for this time of year. We will see a mix of sun and clouds today, with more sun early and clouds gradually building through the afternoon. An isolated shower could sneak in tonight as a cold front approaches.

A cold front will move through on Tuesday triggering scattered showers and possible storms. Our severe threat is low but a heavy downpour and rumble of thunder are possible. Highs tomorrow will return to the mid 70s, near normal.

Scattered showers will linger for Wednesday and Thursday with a mix of clouds. Highs will remain in the mid 70s through the end of the work week.

Today: Mix of Sun & Clouds. Highs in the mid to upper 70s. Winds: SE 5-10

Tropical Update

We are watching a large low pressure area located about 1150 miles ESE of the Windward Islands. It has become a little better organized since yesterday and environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development. A tropical depression is likely to form later this week while the low moves west to WNW at 15 to 20 mph.
