Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Highs will return to the mid to upper 40s today, near normal for this time of year. We will see a mix of clouds (partly to mostly cloudy) with a spotty shower possible.

Sunshine will return tomorrow with highs in the mid to upper 40s again. Winds will kick up tomorrow, NW at 10 to 15 mph. We will start with sunshine on Thursday, but clouds will build in later in the day. Highs will reach the mid 40s and winds will relax.

Our next big weather system will move in on Friday, as an area of low pressure tracks over the Carolinas. Expect mostly rain showers Friday, with the biggest chance in the afternoon to evening. Temperatures will drop to the low and mid 30s overnight and we could see a change over from rain to a wintry mix. The wintry mix could linger into Saturday morning.
