Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

We are mostly cloudy this afternoon with some spotty showers starting to move in. There are some spots of heavier downpours and a little bit of lightning mixing in.Thunderstorms are possible but severe weather is not expected today. We are in the upper 60s and 70s which is 10-15 degrees above where we were yesterday. Normal high is up to 70 degrees now so we are right around normal for this time of year.

Scattered showers and storms will taper off this evening and clouds will begin to break up overnight. Lows will only drop into the mid 50s tonight.

Thursday may be the nicest day of the work week. We will see partly cloudy skies with very low rain chances. Highs will reach 70, near normal for this time of year. Winds will be light and variable.

Keep your umbrella on stand-by, rain returns for Friday. Rain will move through Friday as an area of low pressure tracks up the coast. As of now, it looks like rain chances will be higher in the morning and lower in the afternoon. Highs will reach the mid 70s, a bit above normal.

The weekend is looking really nice with temperatures in the 70s for Saturday and low to mid 60s on Sunday.
