Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More showers and a cool down ahead… We will see a mix of sun and clouds today. Clouds clearing out this morning, sunshine through midday, and clouds returning later today and tonight. Highs will reach the mid 60s today, 5 to 10 degrees cooler than yesterday.

Highs will drop to the low and mid 50s to end the work week, near normal for this time of year. Expect a mix of clouds during the day Thursday with slim rain chances. Showers will move through Thursday night as an area of low pressure slides by to our south. Expect another round of scattered showers on Friday as a cold front moves through.

It will be a dry but chilly weekend. Highs will only reach the upper 40s on Saturday with strong NW winds at 10 to 20 and gusts to 30 mph. Sunday will be the better pick of the weekend with highs in the upper 50s and light winds.

Today: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. Highs in the mid 60s. Winds: W/SW 5-10

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: SW 5-10

Tomorrow: Mix of Clouds, PM Showers. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: N/E 5-15
