Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another round of showers then extremely cold… We will see a blend of sun and clouds for the first part of the day, with more clouds than sun. Clouds will increase this afternoon as a line of fronts lifts north. Expect scattered showers building in for late this afternoon and evening from south to north. Highs today will reach the low 50s. Rain will taper off late tonight with lows near 40.

Expect a mix of clouds on Wednesday with a very slim chance for a shower. Highs will return to the low 50s. Another cold front will move in on Thursday. It’s not going to bring much of a rain chance but will bring in very cold air. Expect highs in the 30s for Thursday and Friday with overnight lows in the 20s and even upper teens by Friday morning. Strong winds will make it feel about ten degrees colder through Thursday and into early Friday.

Today: Partly Sunny to Mostly Cloudy, PM Showers (40%). Highs in the low 50s. Winds: NE/E 5-10

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Showers (50%). Lows near 40. Winds: E/N 5-10
