Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Very cold, windy, and a few snowflakes… With the strong north winds and cold air, we will see some “bay effect” snow for areas along and south of the Chesapeake Bay this morning to midday. Little to no accumulation is expected. Many areas will see sunshine this afternoon with highs in the low 30s. That’s about 10 degrees colder than yesterday and almost 20 degrees below normal for this time of year. Wind chill values this afternoon will only reach the low 20s. It will be cold again tonight with lows falling to near 20 but winds will relax.

Highs will return to near 40 on Friday with lighter winds. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds to end the work week. We will warm into the mid 40s on Saturday with more clouds blending in. Rain (and snow) chances will remain low to end the week and through the weekend. Another cold blast moves in for Sunday and early next week. Expect highs near the freezing point on Sunday and into the upper 20s on Monday.

Today: Isolated Snow Showers (20%), A Few Clouds, Col & Windy. Highs in the low 30s. Winds: N 10-20G25

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Cold. Lows near 20. Winds: N 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy. Highs near 40. Winds: N/W 5-10
