Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

A few more days of rain, then a nice dry stretch.

Rain will continue to become widespread overnight with the chance of storms. Temperatures will be mild with lows in the low 60s and then rising to near 70 by Friday morning. Expect southeast winds at 10-15 mph.

We'll see a nice warm up on Friday, but it unfortunately comes with rain and storms. Temperatures will warm to the low 80s. Rain will continue into the afternoon with some partial clearing. We should finally see a bit of sunshine. It won't last long though, another disturbance will move through giving us a chance for more showers and possible strong to severe storms by late afternoon/evening Friday. Showers and storms will be possible through early Saturday.

Expect showers and possible storms at least for the first part of Saturday. Temperatures will warm to near 80 degrees.

Finally, some sunshine and drier weather move in on Sunday as high pressure takes over. It will unfortunately be much cooler with highs in the upper 60s along the coast and into the 70s inland due to an onshore wind.

Memorial Day is looking dry and cool with highs near 70. Our normal high for Memorial Day is around 80 degrees. Our record high is 94, set back in 1895. Even though it will be cooler, it won't be the coolest on record. Our coldest high temperature was 61 degrees set back in 1930.
