Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Extremely cold today but a big warm up ahead… We will see sunny skies again today, but highs will only reach the low to mid 30s this afternoon. Winds will shift to the west at 5 to 15 mph, making it feel more like the 20s. Skies will remain mainly clear tonight with lows returning to the low and mid 20s.

We will start a gradual warming trend tomorrow. Temperatures will start in the 20s Friday morning but warm into the upper 40s tomorrow afternoon. Expect a mix of sun and clouds tomorrow with a slim chance for a shower.

The warm up will continue for the weekend. Highs will warm to near 50 on Saturday and into the mid 50s on Sunday. We will see partly cloudy skies this weekend with slim rain chances. We will climb into the 60s next week with rain chances going up for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the low 20s. Winds: W/SW 5-10
