Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Flooding threat and a slow warm up… We will see a mix of clouds today, partly to mostly cloudy. An isolated shower is possible but most of the day will be dry. It will still be breezy with winds turning north to northeast at 10 to 15 with gusts to near 20 mph. The winds will trigger “minor level” tidal flooding near time of high tide this morning and again this evening. It will be cooler today, with highs in the upper 50s.

Winds will continue to relax on Sunday and water levels will slowly come down. We will see a mix of sun and clouds on Sunday and most of the day will be dry. An isolated shower is possible Sunday night as a cold front moves in from the west. Highs will warm back to the mid 60s on Sunday.

Temperatures will continue to climb into the 70s next week. We will see more showers Monday and Tuesday.

Today: Partly Sunny, Isolated Shower, Breezy. Highs in the upper 50s. Winds: N/NE 10-15G20

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Shower. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: NE 5-10
