Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A big warm up to start spring… Highs will return to the mid 50s this afternoon, similar to yesterday and just a few degrees below normal for this time of year. We will see a blend of clouds today (partly to mostly cloudy skies) with a few isolated showers, mainly along the coast. It will be breezy today, NE at 10 to 15 with gusts to near 20 mph.

Highs will warm to the mid 60s tomorrow, about 5 degrees above normal. We will see mostly cloudy skies tomorrow with an isolated shower possible. Highs will drop back to the 50s on Wednesday with partly cloudy skies.

Get ready for a huge warm up but more rain to end the work week and start the spring season. Highs will warm to the mid 70s on Thursday as a warm front moves through. The front will also bring in more clouds and scattered showers. Highs will warm to the low 80s on Friday, 20+ degrees above normal for this time of year.
