Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A messy morning to a sunny afternoon… Showers will taper off and move out from NW to SE through mid-morning. A few snow showers could mix in but most locations will not see any accumulation. Sunshine will return for the afternoon as temperatures drop into the mid 30s. It will be windy again today with gusts to near 25 mph possible.

Get ready for a cold night. Temperatures will drop into the low 20s and upper teens overnight with mainly clear skies.

Our wild weather ride will continue for the weekend. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies on Saturday but it will be chilly. Highs will only reach the upper 30s. We will warm into the 50s on Sunday but with cloudy skies and rain. We are keeping an eye on Sunday morning when a little snow could mix in. Sunday will primarily be a rain event for the afternoon and evening hours.

Today: AM Rain/Snow (70%), PM Sunshine, Windy. Temperatures falling into the 30s. Winds: NW 10-20G30
