Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Skies will clear late and temperatures will dip into the 60s overnight.

Behind the cold front, temperatures will be cooler, and the humidity will be much lower. Expect a nice taste of fall both Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday will be a bit on the breezy side with winds out of the northeast at 15-20 mph. Temperatures will be below-normal only warming to the low and mid 70s. Skies will be partly cloudy and rain chances will remain low.

A bit warmer on Wednesday with highs in the upper 70s under mostly sunny skies. Thursday should be mostly dry as well with clouds building in as the day progresses. Rain chances will increase late. Dewpoints will rise to the mid 60s, so it will be a bit sticky and temperatures will be warmer with highs near 80.

A front along with some possible moisture from what is now Hurricane Sally will move in to end the work week. Expect high temperatures near 80 degrees.

A big cool down on tap for the weekend. Expect highs in the low and mid 70s with dewpoints in the 50s. Fall is starting to show itself!

Tropical Update:

Tropical Storm Vicky expected to weaken overnight.
Located about 455 miles WNW of the Cabo Verde Islands.
Moving toward the northwest near 7 mph.
Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph, with higher gusts.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles from the center.
Weakening is forecast due to strong upper-level winds during the next 48 hours, and Vicky is likely to degenerate into remnant low by Wednesday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles.
**Swells generated by Paulette are affecting portions of the east coast of the United States. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
