Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Tracking rain to end the work week… Today will be another nice day with one big change, more clouds. We will see a mix of sun and clouds today, but rain chances will remain slim. Highs will return to the mid and upper 60s, just above normal for this time of year. It will be a bit breezy today with east winds at 5 to 15 mph.

Rain returns for the end of the work week. Expect mostly cloudy skies with rain on Friday as an area of low pressure and cold front move in. A few showers are possible in the morning but expect widespread rain tomorrow afternoon and evening. Rain could be heavy at times. Temperatures will stay warm with highs in the upper 60s. Winds will pick up mainly SE at 10 to 20 mph.

Most of the rain will move out late Friday night to very early Saturday morning. We will see a mix of clouds on Saturday with an isolated shower possible. Highs will warm to near 70. Expect partly cloudy skies on Sunday with highs in the low 70s. An isolated shower is possible, but this weekend will not be a washout.

Another round of rain will move in with a cold front Monday to Tuesday.
