Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast
You'll want to give yourself some extra time to head to work because we will see areas of fog once again overnight and Tuesday morning. It will be a bit milder tonight with lows in the mid and upper 50s.
Moisture will start to increase on Tuesday ahead of a frontal system. Most of the day will be dry and temperatures will be warmer with highs in the mid and upper 70s as winds switch to the south.
A slow-moving cold front along with tropical moisture will approach on Wednesday with rain moving in by the afternoon. Moderate to locally heavy rainfall will be possible. Winds will be out of the south at 10-15 mph, which will continue to usher in tropical air. It will be very warm and humid for this time of year ahead of the cold front with highs in the upper 70s. Rain will continue overnight and Thursday. Widespread rain will be possible through the day Thursday with highs in the low 70s. A rumble of thunder is not out of the question.
Temperatures will be cooler behind the cold front on Friday with highs in the mid and upper 60s. We will see scattered showers throughout the day as the frontal system stalls along the coast. High pressure will move in for the weekend, but there will still be a lot of moisture around, so keeping some scattered showers in the forecast for both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will be cooler with highs in the low and mid 60s. Sunday we'll see temperatures warm to near 70.
Eta is moving toward the southwest near 9 mph, and this motion with a reduction in forward speed is expected tonight. On the forecast track, the center of Eta will remain over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico tonight through Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening will be possible tonight and Tuesday. Gradual weakening is expected to begin by late Wednesday and then continue through the end of the week.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles from the center.
Subtropical Storm Theta forms over the open northeast Atlantic. Record-breaking 29th named storm of the season.
The storm is moving toward the east near 15 mph, and a general east-northeast motion is expected to continue during the next two to three days.
Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible during the next 12 to 24 hours followed by little change in strength through Thursday. Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 115 miles from the center.
