Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Temperatures will fall from the 90s to the 70s this evening, but it will still be muggy. Isolated showers and storms will fizzle out this evening and clouds will clear out late tonight.

Sunday will look and feel and lot like Saturday. Highs will return to mid 90s Sunday with an afternoon heat index near 100. We will see mostly sunny skies in the morning with clouds building in the afternoon. Scattered (30-40%) showers/storms will move through from NW to SE during the afternoon to early evening (2 PM to 8 PM). Skies will clear out Sunday night with lows in the low 70s.

Monday will be the nicest day of the week with cooler and less humid air moving in. Highs will drop to the mid 80s, below normal for this time of year. With the lower humidity, we really wont’ have much of a heat index to speak of. We will see more sunshine on Monday with no rain.

Heat, humidity, and storms return as we get closer to the 4th of July. Several days next week will bring highs in the mid 90s, heat index to 100+, with afternoon shower and storms.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Shower/Storm. Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy, PM Showers/Storms. Highs in the mid 90s. Winds: W/NW 5-15
