Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Clearing skies and much cooler… The cold front the brought us the showers and storms yesterday is pushing to our south today. We will start with clouds this morning and temperatures near 60. Clouds will clear out through mid-morning. Expect plenty of sunshine this afternoon but highs will only reach the mid 60s, about 20 degrees cooler than yesterday. It will still be breezy today, with NE to E winds at 10 to 20 and gusts to 25 mph.

Expect mainly clear skies this evening but clouds will build back in overnight. Lows will only slip into the low 50s.

Wednesday will be more of a gloomy day than a soggy day but we will still have a chance for rain. Expect mostly cloudy skies tomorrow with an isolated shower possible in the morning and scattered showers in the afternoon. A rumble of thunder is possible but overall storm chances to not look impressive. Highs will reach the upper 60s, near normal for this time of year. We will warm back into the low 80s for the end of the work week.
