Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A dry and warmer midweek… Highs will reach the mid 40s today, about 5 degrees warmer than yesterday but still below normal for this time of year. Winds will be light today, so it may feel warmer than yesterday. We will see a mix of sun and clouds today with more clouds in the morning and more sun in the afternoon. Expect clear skies tonight with lows returning to near 30.

Highs will warm to near 50 on Wednesday, slightly above normal for this time of year. We will see mostly sunny skies tomorrow with light winds.

Our next chance for rain is set to move in late Thursday to early Friday. Clouds will build in through the day on Thursday with rain showers moving in that night. Rain will continue into Friday morning with clouds clearing out by the afternoon. Highs will remain near normal, in the upper 40s on Thursday and warm into the mid 50s on Friday.

It is looking like a 50/50 weekend. Clouds will build in on Saturday with highs in the 50s and low rain chances. Sunday will be another washout with rain all day. Rain could chance over to snow by Sunday evening as a cold front brings in colder air. Winds will also crank up on Sunday.

Today: Clearing Skies. Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: NW 5-10

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows near 30. Winds: NW/SW 5-10

Tomorrow: A Few Clouds. Highs near 50. Winds: SW/NW 5-10
