Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Cool today but not for long… A beautiful start to the week and to the month of June. Expect mostly sunny skies today with only a few clouds mixing in. High temperatures will only reach the low 70s today, about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year.

Heat and humidity build through the week. Highs will climb to the low 80s tomorrow, near normal. We will see a mix of clouds tomorrow with an isolated shower possible. Highs will climb to the low 90s on Wednesday with a return to sunshine.

The end of this week will be very summer-like. Highs will linger in the mid to upper 80s. It will still be humid so it may feel more like the low 90s. We will see a mix of sun and clouds with the chance for scattered showers and storms.

Today: Mostly Sunny. Highs in the low 70s. Winds: NE 5-15

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the mid 50s. Winds: S 5-10

Tomorrow: Mix of Clouds, Isolated Shower. Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SW 5-15

This disturbance is forecast to move northwest over the Bay of Campeche later today or tonight where environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development. A new tropical depression is likely to form within the next day or so. The system is then forecast to drift west or WSW over the southern Bay of Campeche through the middle of the week.
