Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

A stationary front is going to linger to our north and west for several days. The front is going to provide a runway for several areas of low pressure to move along. At the same time, an area of low pressure near the Gulf Coast of Florida with bring more moisture to the southeast. That means several opportunities for showers and storms. Expect mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers/storms and highs in the low 80s for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. So far we are not expecting any storms to go severe.

Unfortunately rain continues into the weekend at 60% for Saturday and 50% for Sunday. Temperatures will start to warm by Sunday back into the mid 80s. We will finally start to see some sunshine sneak in by the middle of next week.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Lows near 70. Winds: SW 5-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms (70%). Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SW 5-15
