Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Sunny, cold, and windy… Snow showers have moved off of the coast and clouds are quickly clearing this morning. We will see mostly sunny skies this afternoon with highs warming to near 40°. It will feel more like the low to mid 30s with the wind. Expect west winds at 10 to 15 mph.

Lows will drop into the mid 20s Friday morning so the melting that we see today will likely refreeze overnight. Highs will warm into the low 50s on Friday with mostly sunny skies and light winds. Expect sunshine and mid 50s this weekend.

Highs will warm to near 60 on Monday with clouds building in. We are tracking rain chances for later Monday into early Tuesday.

Today: Clearing Skies, Breezy. Highs near 40. Winds: NW/W 10-15G25

Tonight: Clear Skies. Lows in the mid 20s. Winds: W 5-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny, Warmer. Highs in the low 50s. Winds: W/SW 5-10
