Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Clouds build in and cooler air returns… Temperatures will drop to near 60 tonight with partly cloudy skies. Sunday will bring us an interesting split across the area of both temperatures and cloud cover. High temperatures will range from the mid 70s inland to the mid 60s near the coast. We will see a mix of clouds through the day, with partly cloudy skies inland and mostly cloudy skies near the coast.

Memorial Day will start cloudy, but clouds will gradually break up through the day. Most areas will only reach to near 70, 5-10 degrees below normal for this time of year. We will warm up again next week, reaching the mid 70s on Tuesday, near 80 on Wednesday, and mid 80s by Thursday.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Shower. Lows near 60. Winds: E/S 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly to Mostly Cloudy, Cooler. Highs in the upper 60s. Winds: NE 5-15
