Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast
Feeling more like Fall for the rest of the week!
Clearing skies today as high pressure builds over the area. It will be about 10 degrees cooler behind the cold front, with highs in the mid 70s.
Sunshine will continue to prevail on Thursday with highs in the mid 70s.
Comfortable and gorgeous conditions will prevail to end the week. Expect another day of wall-to-wall sunshine with highs in the low 70s.
A bit of a warming trend heading into the weekend. Temperatures will warm to the upper 70s on Saturday and near 80 on Sunday. Both days are looking dry and sunny.
Sam is a category 4 hurricane and is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph. This general motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days. A turn toward the north is forecast by Friday. On the forecast track, Sam will pass well to the east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands through tonight. Maximum sustained winds are near 130 mph with higher gusts.
Some fluctuations in intensity are expected during the next couple of days, but Sam is forecast to remain a major hurricane through late this week. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles
Tropical Depression Twenty is moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph, and this motion is expected to continue during the next couple of days, followed by a turn to the northwest. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph with higher gusts. Steady strengthening is forecast, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm tonight and a hurricane in a couple of days.
