Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

High pressure moves offshore and we're in for a big warm up. We'll see some clouds build in overnight as a warm front lifts across the area. Lows will be closer to normal for this time of year in the low and mid 50s. We'll see a bit more cloud cover on Thursday, but conditions are looking dry. Expect highs in the mid and upper 70s. Sunshine will return for Friday with temperatures reaching the mid 80s.

A few showers are possible this weekend due to a couple disturbances that will move through. Not looking at anything major, but an isolated shower is not out of the question. It will be on the warm side with highs in the mid 80s on Saturday and low 80s on Sunday.

We are also keeping an eye on the potential development of a sub-tropical wave to the north of the Bahamas. As of now, an area of low pressure that will be moving in should absorb the potential system and we will mainly see rain Monday through Wednesday. Temperatures will be much cooler. Expect highs near 80 on Monday, falling to near 70 on Tuesday and into the upper 60s on Wednesday.

Hurricane season starts on June 1st and runs through November.

Tropical Update

A broad area of low pressure is expected to develop in a couple of days near or just north of the Bahamas. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system, and a subtropical depression or storm is likely to form this weekend. The system is expected to move generally northeastward over the western Atlantic through early next week.

* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (10%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: HIGH (70%)
