Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A return to fall-like temperatures… Highs will only reach the mid to upper 60s today, near normal but about 15 degrees cooler than yesterday. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds today with slim rain chances near the coast.

Get ready for a chilly night with lows dropping into the 40s. Tomorrow will be even cooler with highs in the low to mid 60s. Expect partly cloudy skies tomorrow morning with more sunshine for the afternoon. Rain chances will remain slim. Highs will warm into the upper 60s Friday with mostly sunny skies.

It is looking like a 50/50 weekend. Saturday looks nice with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low 70s. Showers will build in overnight with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers on Sunday.

Today: Partly Cloudy, Cooler. Highs upper 60s. Winds: NW 5-10

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Chilly. Lows in the upper 40s. Winds: NW 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy to Mostly Sunny, Even Cooler. Highs in the low to mid 60s. Winds: NW 5-15

Tropical Update

A broad area of low pressure located over the western Caribbean Sea continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms over Nicaragua, Honduras, and the adjacent waters.  Close proximity to land is likely to limit development of this system for the next day or so. However, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for the system to become more organized later this week as it moves slowly northward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Strong upper-level winds associated with an approaching cold front will likely prevent further development by Sunday.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (20%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (40%)
