Meteorologist Maddie Kirker’s First Warning Forecast

Rain continues into the weekend… Widespread showers and even a few thunderstorms are expected overnight. Severe weather is unlikely but a storm with winds up to 40 mph is possible.

Rain will continue for Saturday morning. Showers will taper off Saturday afternoon as clouds begin to break up. Thanks to a breezy southwest wind, highs will warm to the mid 60s. Sunday will be the better pick of the weekend. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 50s.

Our next rain chance will move in on Tuesday. Highs will drop to the 40s for the second half of next week.
