Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Summer versus fall… High temperatures will range from the low 70s to the low 90s this week. Today will be on the cooler side. Highs will only reach the upper 70s today, just a few degrees above normal for this time of year. We will see a mix of clouds through the day with slim rain chances. It will be breezy today with NE/E winds at 5 to 15 mph. Clouds will stick around overnight with lows in the low to mid 60s.
Clouds will linger into Tuesday morning, but clouds will clear out through the day. Highs will warm into the low 80s tomorrow afternoon. More summer-like heat and humidity will return by midweek. Highs will climb to near 90 on Wednesday and the low 90s on Thursday, close to the daily record temperatures for those dates.
We are tracking a cold front that will move through the region on Friday. An isolated shower/storm is possible, but the biggest impact will be a temperature change. Highs will drop to the low 80s on Friday and to the low 70s on Saturday.
