Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Several days in the 80s… Get ready for a big warm up to end the week. Highs will climb into the mid 80s today, almost 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. Expect sunshine for most of today with a few clouds mixing in at times. We are tracking a cold front that will move in late tonight and into Friday morning. Scattered showers and storms are possible overnight and for Friday morning. Showers and clouds should clear through Friday afternoon with highs returning to the mid 80s.

The weekend should be nice but very warm. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s both Saturday and Sunday. Many spots could flirt with 90° on Saturday. Expect partly cloudy skies through the weekend with an afternoon “pop-up” shower or storm possible.
