Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

A cold front is racing through the region tonight, bringing howling winds, falling temperatures and a little rain, sleet and snow.

Tomorrow morning we see some of the coldest air of the season. We will wake up to temperatures in the 20s but feeling like the teens once you factor in the gusty winds. The wind will be coming from the west at 10-15 mph gusting as high as 25 mph by the end of the day. We will only reach the mid to high 30s as the high. Rain chances will stay down at 10% and we will see a mostly sunny sky with little to no cloud cover.

Thursday we are back to near normal with highs in the 50s. Mostly sunny sky once again with a 0% chance of rain.

Friday is the next best chance of rain. We will reach a high of 47 with a 40% chance of rain. The weekend is looking nice and mainly dry. Saturday we will reach a high of 48 with a 0% chance of rain and Sunday we will reach 58 with a 10% chance of rain.
