Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another big cool down… Many areas felt temperatures climb into the 80s yesterday, today will be about 20 degrees cooler. A cold front pushed through overnight, bringing in the big cool down. We will have some leftover clouds and a very stray shower possible this morning but skies will clear by midday. Temperatures will start in the upper 50s this morning and only reach the low 60s this afternoon. It may feel even cooler with strong north winds gusting to near 30 mph, especially this morning through midday.

Weather should be great for trick-or-treating this evening. Expect mainly clear skies this evening with temperatures in the mid 50s and winds relaxing.

Sunshine will return for midweek with temperatures warming. Expect highs in the mid 60s Tuesday, low 70s Wednesday, and mid 70s Thursday. Another cold front will move in Thursday night, increasing our rain chances and bringing in cooler air for Friday and the weekend.
