Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More rain to start the week… After a soggy early morning, a few isolated showers will linger through midday. Expect a mix of clouds with some sunshine breaking through, especially this afternoon. More scattered showers and storms will likely fire up later this afternoon to evening. Strong to severe storms are possible with gusty winds and heavy downpours as the biggest threat. Highs will return to the mid and upper 80s this afternoon, near normal for this time of year.
