Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy today with highs near 80. More clouds will build in this evening and overnight. If you want to head out and check out the Harvest Moon, it is officially full at 7:55 PM. Temperatures will dip into the upper 60s overnight.

Still looking mostly dry on Tuesday with highs in the low 80s, but expect more cloud cover. Keeping a slight chance for isolated showers.

A strong cold front will move in on Wednesday with a chance showers. Highs will once again be in the low 80s. It will feel warmer due to an increase in the humidity. Even though Fall arrives at 3:21 PM, it won't feel very fall-like just yet. Showers will continue overnight and into the day Thursday. Storms will also be possible. Thursday will be a bit breezy with highs only in the upper 70s and falling humidity.

Very fall-like to end the work week as drier air works into the area. Highs will reach the mid 70s with dewpoints in the 50s.

Tracking a gorgeous weekend on tap with highs in the mid and upper 70s. Expect mostly sunny skies and dry weather.
