Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A sunny and warm week… We spent much of last week with below normal temperatures, we will spend most of this week above normal. Temperatures will climb into the mid 70s this afternoon, near normal for this time of year. After a mix of clouds this morning, expect plenty of sunshine this afternoon. It will be breezy, especially this morning. Winds should relax a bit this afternoon.

Sunny skies will return for Tuesday with highs warming into the upper 70s. We will continue to warm into the upper 80s on Wednesday and near 90 on Thursday, about 15 degrees above normal. A few more clouds will blend in for the end of the work week but rain chances will still be low.

We are tracking our next group of fronts that will move our way for the weekend. Scattered showers and storms are possible Saturday and Sunday. We will fine tune the rain timing and amounts as we go through the week.
