Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another sunny and chilly day… We will see plenty of sunshine again today with highs returning to the low 50s this afternoon. It will still be breezy but not as gusty as yesterday. The NW winds will make it feel about 5 degrees colder.

Expect clear skies tonight with lows falling to near freezing again for Wednesday morning. We will warm slightly into the mid 50s tomorrow. Expect sunshine through midday with clouds building in during the afternoon and evening. Our best chance for showers this week will move in for Thanksgiving as a cold front and area of low pressure slide east. Highs will warm into the low 60s for Thursday and Friday.

Today: Mostly Sunny, Chilly, Breezy. Highs in the low 50s. Winds: NW 10-15

Tonight: Mainly Clear, Cold. Lows in the low 30s. Winds: NW/N 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: N/W/S 5-10
