First Warning Forecast: Spring-like temperatures on tap

Posted at 11:36 PM, Nov 17, 2016

The First Warning Storm Team is tracking a big warm up and a big cool down. We’ll see temperatures climbing toward the 70s by the weekend, but we’re also tracking temperatures falling into the 50s.

Tonight, expect low temperatures to fall into the mid 40s. A few areas of patchy fog could develop late.

On Friday, expect another mild day. Highs will rise into the upper 60s with plenty of sunshine. There could be some early morning fog around, so be careful.

On Saturday, we’re expecting even warmer weather. High temperatures will soar into the mid 70s under mostly sunny to party cloudy skies. But a strong cold front will change our weather significantly. A few showers may develop as the front crosses the area late Saturday into Sunday. However, the biggest difference with our weather will be our temperatures. Highs will drop from the 70s on Saturday into the low and mid 50s by Sunday! We’ll have wind gusts to 30 mph, which will make it feel even colder.

High temperatures will remain in the lower 50s on Monday, climbing into the mid and upper 50s by Tuesday. Then, as we approach Thanksgiving, temperatures will rise back into the 60s. A few showers are possible on Thanksgiving Day.

Tonight: Mostly clear. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Friday: Patchy AM fog. Then, mostly sunny and warmer. Highs in the upper 60s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Late day shower possible (20%). Winds pick up. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.

Weather & Health for Friday

Pollen: Low (Mixed)

UV Index: Moderate

Air Quality: Good (Code Green)

Mosquitoes: Low

Tropical Update

Cloudiness and showers over the southwestern Caribbean Sea are associated with a broad low pressure area.  This system has changed little in organization since this time yesterday.  However, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for slow development during the next several days, and a tropical depression could form over the weekend or early next week while the low moves slowly and erratically.

Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (20%)

Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)
