Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Cold and windy… Highs will only reach the upper 30s this afternoon, about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. It will feel more like the upper 20s with north winds at 10 to 20 and gusts to near 25 mph. We will see mostly sunny inland with clouds for areas along and south of the Chesapeake Bay. Stray showers or even flurries are possible with the extra clouds for areas near Virginia Beach, Currituck, and the Outer Banks.

A few clouds will mix in tonight, but it will still be cold and windy. Temperatures will drop into the upper 20s overnight with wind chill values in the teens.

It will be cold and windy again tomorrow. Highs will only reach the upper 30s and north winds at 10 to 20 mph will continue. We will see a mix of sun and clouds tomorrow, with more clouds in the morning and more sunshine in the afternoon.

Temperatures will gradually warm up through the week. Expect highs in the 40s on Wednesday, near 50 on Thursday, and mid 50s on Friday. Our next substantial chance for rain will move in Friday night to Saturday.
