Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Warming up again… We will start another big warming trend today. Temperatures will start in the 50s this morning and warm into the mid 70s this afternoon, about 10 degrees above normal. Expect leftover clouds this morning with clearing skies through midday. Rain chances will remain low and winds will stay light.

Highs will warm into the low 80s on Thursday with sunshine for most of the day. A cold front will move through Thursday night, increasing our rain chances overnight. Showers should move out early Friday morning with clouds clearing by midday. Winds will also crank up overnight Thursday and Friday with gusts to 30+ mph possible. Cooler air will move in behind the front for Friday and the weekend with highs back into the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. We should see plenty of sunshine through the weekend and into early next week.

Today: Clearing Skies, Warmer. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the upper 50s. Winds: SW 5-10
