Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Very warm and a threat for severe storms… Highs today will warm into the low 80s, about 15 degrees above normal for this time of year. Most of today we will see a nice mix of sun and clouds and rain chances will be low. A few scattered showers are possible late this afternoon but our chances for rain and storms will increase tonight. Strong to severe storms are possible this evening and tonight. Heavy downpours and gusty winds will be our biggest threats.

Scattered showers will linger through the day Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies. Highs will drop to the mid 70s tomorrow. Sunshine will return for Wednesday with highs falling to the mid 60s. Sunshine and 60s will continue for Thursday.

We are tracking a cold front that will bring in another chance for showers to end the work week. Highs will warm back to the 70s on Friday before the front arrives.

Today: Partly Sunny, Very Warm, PM Showers. Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SW 5-15

Tonight: Possible Severe Storms. Lows in the low 60s. Winds: SW 5-15
