Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A cooler start to the week… Highs will only reach the mid 80s this afternoon, about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. Dew points will also drop into the 60s, making it feel less muggy. We will see a mix of sun and clouds with an isolated shower/storm possible.

Highs will only reach the low 80s on Tuesday, about 5 degrees below normal for this time of year. It will feel even nicer with dew points dropping into the low 60s. Expect partly cloudy skies tomorrow with a chance for scattered showers and storms in the afternoon to evening.

Scattered showers and storms will continue on Wednesday with heat and humidity making a return for the second half of the week. Highs will return to the mid 80s on Wednesday. Highs will reach the low 90s for Thursday, Friday, and the weekend. Dew points will return to the mid 70s, making it feel more like the low triple digits. Rain chances should drop as we get closer to the weekend.

Today: Partly Cloudy. Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: W/N 5-10

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows near 70. Winds: NE 5-10
