Meteorologist Maddie Kirker’s First Warning Forecast

A cold front will move through tonight, bringing in a few scattered showers and storms. Winds will be breezy out of the southwest while the front passes. Once the threat of rain ends, skies will go from mostly cloudy to partly cloudy. Lows will be mild and in the low 70s.

We’ll get a quick return to Fall Friday with cooler afternoon temperatures in the low 80s behind the cold front. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny. It will still be breezy tomorrow with NE winds at 5 to 15 mph. Friday will be dry.

As we head into the weekend, we can expect summer-like conditions to return with warm highs in the mid 80s and high humidity. We will see partly cloudy skies with scattered showers and storms possible.
