Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

We still have a few spots of some light to moderate showers but a lot of us have already dried out compared to this morning. Rain will continue to move out and be completely out of our area by the early evening. Clouds will clear out late this afternoon. The cold front has also made the wind pick up. Expect S/SW winds at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to near 30 mph. We will still make it into the lower 70s for daytime highs which is about 25 degrees above our normal high for this time of year.

Sunshine will dominate the second half of the week but colder air will return. Highs will drop into the mid 50s on Wednesday and into the mid 40s on Thursday.

The weekend is looking beautiful and warm once again. The high for both Saturday and Sunday is 62 with only a 40% chance of rain for Sunday.

Today: Mostly Cloudy Showers/Storms (70%), Windy. Highs in the low 70s. Winds: S/SW 10-20G30

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the upper 30s. Winds: W 5-15
