Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Cloudy, cool, and a few more showers… Highs will return to the mid 70s this afternoon, almost ten degrees below normal for this time of year. Mugginess will increase through the day as dew points climb from the low 60s to the upper 60s. Expect mostly cloudy skies again today with scattered showers. Expect higher rain chances to the southwest and lower chances to the northeast. It will still be breezy today with east winds at 10 to 15 and gusts near 20 mph.

Warmer air returns of the second half of the week. Highs will jump to near 90 on Wednesday. With a dew point near 70, it will feel like the low 90s tomorrow afternoon. We will see more sunshine mix in tomorrow but could still see scattered showers/storms fire up later in the day.

Highs will remain in the mid 80s for the end of the work week. Expect partly cloudy skies both Thursday and Friday. An isolated shower is possible but most areas should stay dry.

Father’s Day weekend is looking nice! Highs will remain in the mid 80s, near normal. We should see a mix of sun and clouds with low rain chances.

Tropical Update

We are watching a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the western Caribbean Sea. This area of disturbed weather is expected to move west to northwest over Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula during the next couple of days. Little, if any, development is expected during that time. Environmental conditions could become slightly conducive for some development when the system moves into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (10%).

* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (20%).
