Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Another cool start this morning, but we'll continue to have sunshine with highs warming to the mid 70s as high pressure builds in. There will be a little more of a breeze out of the northwest. Cooler Sunday night due to mostly clear skies. Expect most areas to fall into the 50s, but could see some upper 40s inland.

Temperatures will start to climb to kick off the work week as winds turn to the southwest. Highs will warm to the low 80s with plenty of sunshine.

A cold front will move in on Tuesday. Humidity and temperatures will climb with highs in the mid 80s. Keeping storm chances for later in the day. Winds will pick up out of the southwest at 10-15 mph.

Turning breezy on Wednesday with temperatures about 10 degrees cooler in the mid 70s. Winds will be out of the north at 10-15 mph with higher gusts. Another system will move in for Friday and Saturday. Right now, looks like most of the wet weather will stay to our north, but we'll keep a slight chance for a spotty shower. It will be on the windy side both days with winds out of the north at 15-20, with gusts up to 30 mph possible. Highs will warm to the low and mid 70s.

Tropical Update

Sam is moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph. This general motion is expected to continue today, followed by a turn toward the northwest on Monday. Then, a northwestward motion is forecast to continue through midweek. Maximum sustained winds are near 145 mph with higher gusts. Sam is a category 4 hurricane. Some fluctuations in intensity are expected during the next day or so. Thereafter, some slow weakening is forecast.
