Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Not as cold or as windy… Temperatures will warm into the mid 40s this afternoon, still about 10 degrees below normal. It will still be a bit breezy, especially this morning, so it will feel about 5 degrees colder. Winds will continue to relax this afternoon. We will see a split of sun and clouds today, with more sun to the north and west and more clouds to the south and east. A leftover shower is possible but primarily for the Outer Banks.

Expect plenty of sunshine for Wednesday with highs warming into the low 50s, near normal for this time of year. We will warm into the upper 50s on Thursday, before a cold front moves in. This front will not bring much of a rain chance but will bring in cooler air for Friday.

Today: Sun & Clouds, Isolated Showers (20%). Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: N 5-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows near 30. Winds: N/NW 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny. Highs in the low 50s. Winds: N 5-10
