Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Warmer today then tracking storms… Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer and it will feel more like summer today. Temperatures will warm into the mid and upper 80s this afternoon, almost ten degrees warmer than yesterday. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds today. An isolated shower or storm could pop up this afternoon or evening but most areas will stay dry.

Expect partly cloudy skies this evening with clouds building in late. Rain and storm chances will increase overnight tonight. Strong to severe storms are possible after midnight into early Tuesday. Temperatures will dip into the upper 60s overnight.

A string of fronts will linger to our south on Tuesday, keeping clouds and scattered showers and storms in the mix. Most of the rain will be Tuesday morning but an isolated shower or storm could linger into the afternoon. Highs will slip into the low 80s tomorrow. Sunshine will return for midweek with highs in the low 80s and upper 70s.
