Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A warm up to start the weekend, then cold again… This morning’s clouds will clear out by midday and we will see sunshine for most of the afternoon. Highs will warm to near 40 this afternoon, about 10 degrees warmer than yesterday but still about 10 degrees below normal. Clouds will start to build in this evening with overnight lows falling into the low and mid 20s.

We will warm into the mid and upper 40s on Saturday, just below normal for this time of year. Expect a mix of clouds with more clouds north and more sun south. An isolated rain/snow shower is possible for northern areas (Eastern Shore, Northern Neck).

Another cold blast will move in for Sunday and early next week. Expect highs near the freezing point on Sunday with partly cloudy skies. Wind will crank up on Sunday, making it feel even colder. Highs will return to the low 30s and upper 20s on Monday and Tuesday with mostly sunny skies and strong north winds.

Today: A Few Clouds. Highs near 40. Winds: NW/W 5-10

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the low 20s. Winds: W/SW 5-10

Tomorrow: Mix of Clouds, Isolated Rain/Snow Showers (20%), Breezy. Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: SW 5-15
