Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Tracking two rounds of rain this weekend… Highs will return to near 70 today, a few degrees above normal for this time of year. We will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies today. Expect partly cloudy skies tonight with lows in the mid to upper 50s.

We are tracking a cold front that will approach the region from the west on Friday. Most of the day will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. An isolated shower is possible but most of the rain will stay west of I-95. Highs will warm into the mid 70s tomorrow, but it will be windy. Expect south winds at 10 to 20 with gusts to 30 mph.

The cold front will stall out just to our west on Saturday, keeping clouds and showers across a big part of the Mid-Atlantic. Expect mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers through the day. An isolated thunderstorm is possible, especially Saturday afternoon. Highs will return to the mid 70s.

Mostly cloudy skies will continue for Sunday. A few showers are possible during the day, but rain chances will increase late Sunday to early Monday as another cold front moves through. Clouds will finally clear out late Monday to Tuesday.
