Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Warm and muggy… Highs will warm to the upper 80s this afternoon but it will feel more like the low 90s. More sunshine will mix in with the clouds as we go through the day. A “pop up” shower or storm is possible.
Expect partly cloudy skies tonight with a scattered shower/storm possible. It will still be warm and muggy with lows in the low to mid 70s.
Thursday will be a day of improvement. We will start with clouds in the morning but see more sunshine by the afternoon. Highs will reach the mid 80s, just a bit above normal. Dew points will drop from the upper 60s in the morning to the low 60s in the afternoon, making it feel more refreshing.
Friday may be the nicest day of the week. We will see mostly sunny skies with light north to northeast winds. Highs will only reach the low 80s. It will feel very spring-like with dew points in the 50s.
Father’s Day weekend looks nice too, but warmer. Highs will return to the mid 80s on Saturday with mostly sunny skies. We will warm into the upper 80s on Sunday with a few more clouds building in. Humidity will also be on the rise, so it will feel more like the 90s Sunday afternoon.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10
