Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

After breaking record low temperatures this morning we warmed up quite a bit on Tuesday afternoon. And Wednesday is going to be even warmer before a cold front arrives.

Hurricane Chris will start to move northeast on Wednesday as that cold front moves in from the northwest. We will start with sunshine tomorrow but clouds and scattered showers will move in for the afternoon and evening. There is a chance for an isolated severe storm. Highs will warm into the upper 80s once again bu with more humidity.

Rain and storms will continue overnight and push into Thursday morning. Through the afternoon we will clear out by the afternoon with more sunshine moving in. Highs will only reach the lower 80s because of the cold front. Friday we will be cool again with highs only in the lower 80s and rain chances staying low at 10%.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows near 70. Winds: S 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, PM Showers/Storms (40%). Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: W/N 5-15
