Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Temperatures will be much milder overnight than last night as a warm front lifts over the area. Temperatures will cool to the mid and upper 50s.

A big warm up on tap Wednesday. Temperatures will soar to the upper 70s to low 80s. It will be on the breezy side with winds out of the southwest. Most of the day is looking mostly to partly sunny, with more clouds as the day progresses. A cold front will slowly approach from the west. This will be our next big weather maker.

Rain and possible storms will become widespread on Thursday. Strong to severe storms are possible. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts. Heavy rain will be likely through the day. We could actually see 2 to 3 inches, which could cause some localized flooding. This is a slow moving cold front, so expect most of the day to be a washout. Temperatures will warm to the low 70s.

We'll dry out overnight and into the day Friday. Just keeping a slight chance for a shower. It will be cooler with highs in the upper 60s.

High pressure will build in just in time for the weekend. Expect highs in the low 70s on Saturday and near 80 on Sunday.
