Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A soggy start to the work week… Expect mostly cloudy skies with on and off rain showers through most of the day. We are not expecting severe weather but a stray thunderstorm is possible. Rain will be heavy at times and localized flooding is possible. Rain will be widespread this morning and will gradually become more scattered this afternoon. Highs will only reach to near 80 today, a bit below normal, but it will be muggy.

Rain chances will taper off this evening but a few scattered showers/storms are still possible tonight. We will continue to see mostly cloudy skies with lows in the low to mid 70s.

Tuesday will look very similar to Monday. Expect mostly cloudy skies with on and off rain. A stray storm and heavy downpours are possible. Highs will warm into the mid 80s tomorrow. We will warm into the upper 80s on Wednesday with another chance for scattered showers and a few storms possible.

More sunshine will try to break through for the second half of the week. Highs will remain near normal, in the mid to upper 80s. It will be very muggy so it will feel more like the mid 90s. An afternoon scattered shower or storm will still be possible but overall rain will not be as widespread for the second part of the week.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Rain (80%), Stray Storms. Highs near 80. Winds: SE 5-15

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers (40%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: S 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Rain (60%), Stray Storms. Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: S 5-15
