Meteorologist Madeline Evans' First Warning Forecast

Rain/sleet/snow showers will move out late tonight, but the slushy mess left on the roads could refreeze, making for some dangerous driving conditions overnight and Tuesday morning. Winds will continue to pick up tonight, north at 20 to 30 and gusts to 40+ mph.

Sunshine will return Tuesday but it will still be windy. We will be mostly sunny tomorrow with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Expect NW winds at 15 to 20 and gusts to 30 mph. Rain chances will stick to 10%.

We will stay mainly dry the rest of the week with temperatures finally nearing 60 degrees and lots of sunshine.

We will see more sunshine for the second half of the work week. Highs will warm into the 50s and closer to 60°.

Today: Cloudy, Rain (90%), Windy. Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: NE 15-25G35

Tonight: Cloudy, Rain/Sleet/Snow (80%), Windy. Lows in the low 30s. Winds: N 20-30G40

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, Windy. Highs in the upper 40s. Winds: NW 15-25G30
