Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Big warm up on the way… After a foggy morning, we will see a nice mix of sun and clouds for the rest of the day. Temperatures will warm to the mid and upper 50s, at least 5 degrees warmer than yesterday. Lows will fall to near 40 tonight with partly cloudy skies and fog possible overnight.

We will warm to near 60 on Friday. Expect a mix of clouds through the day but rain chances will be slim. The warm up continues for the weekend. Highs will return to the low 60s on Saturday but climb to the upper 60s on Sunday. We will see a mix of clouds again Saturday with low rain chances. Rain will move in on Sunday, mainly for the second half of the day. Showers will continue Sunday night to Monday morning.

As we get ready to start 2020, we will return to sunshine, but cooler air will make a comeback. Highs will drop to the low 50s, closer to normal for this time of year.
