Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A one-day break from the heat and humidity… Today will be the nicest day of the week with sunshine, cooler temperatures, and lower humidity. Highs will drop to the mid 80s today, 10 degrees cooler than yesterday and a few degrees below normal for this time of year. With the lower humidity, we really wont’ have much of a heat index to speak of. Expect north to NE winds at 5 to 15 mph.

Heat and humidity return tomorrow. Highs will climb to the low 90s with afternoon heat index values in the mid to upper 90s. We will see mostly sunny skies tomorrow and rain chances will remain low.

Rain and storms chances return as we get closer to the 4th of July. Expect afternoon scattered showers and storms starting on Wednesday and continuing through the end of the week. Humidity will continue to build for the end of the week, pushing afternoon heat index values to 100+.
