Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Leftover showers today, but a nice weekend… Watch out for areas of patchy dense fog this morning mixed with cloudy skies, scattered showers, and drizzle. We will see a mix of clouds through the day with on and off scattered showers. Rain will not be as heavy or as widespread as yesterday and storms are not expected. High temperatures will only reach the mid 60s today with west to NW winds at 5 to 15 mph.

The weekend looks great! We will see lots of sunshine on Saturday with highs warming to the low 70s, near normal. Expect partly cloudy skies on Sunday with highs near 80. A few showers may sneak in late on Sunday but most of the weekend will be dry.

Highs will cool back to the 70s and 60s next week with scattered showers in the mix for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers, Breezy. Highs in the mid 60s. Winds: W/NW 5-15
