Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Morning showers to afternoon sunshine… Showers and clouds will clear out from mid-morning to midday. Expect sunshine this afternoon with highs in the upper 60s. It will still be windy this morning but winds will relax this afternoon. Expect clear skies tonight with lows in the mid 40s.

Thursday will be another really nice day. We will see plenty of sunshine with highs warming into the low 70s. Winds will pick up again tomorrow with gusts to near 25 mph possible. We are tracking another cold front for Friday. Extra clouds will build in but rain chances will be limited. The front will open the door for much colder air to move in.

Highs will slip into the 40s and 30s this weekend. An area of low pressure will slide across the SE and bring in moisture from late Saturday night to Sunday. It is looking likely that we will see a mixture of rain and snow. Snow is possible overnight Saturday into Sunday morning then rain will likely mix in. Accumulation is possible but it is still too early to talk about how much and where specifically.

Today: AM Rain (60%), Clearing Skies, Calming Winds. Highs in the upper 60s. Winds: W 10-20

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: SW 5-10
