Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Sunny today, warmer weekend… Highs will reach to near 80 today, about 5 degrees cooler than yesterday and about 5 degrees above normal. We will see mostly sunny skies with a few clouds mainly along the coast. A few extra clouds will mix in tonight with lows returning to the low and mid 60s.

The heat returns for the weekend. Highs will climb to near 90 on Saturday, about 15 degrees above normal. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds. An isolated shower is possible Saturday night but most of the day will be dry.

Temperatures will slip back into the mid 80s for Mother’s Day. We will see partly cloudy skies with a chance for scattered showers/storms Sunday night. Most of the day will be dry but rain chances will go up around sunset.

Get ready for a summer-like week. Highs will linger in the low to mid 80s with several chances for showers and storms next week.
