Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A soggy day with a storm threat… Rain will build in this morning and most of the day will be soggy. A line of strong to severe storms will move through from NW to SE this afternoon to early evening. Heavy downpours and gusty winds will be our biggest threats, but an isolated tornado is possible. It will be a warm and humid day (for February) with high temperatures reaching the upper 60s. Rain will taper off this evening with mostly cloud skies and lows in the mid 40s tonight.

Highs will drop to the low 50s on Wednesday, closer to normal for this time of year. We will see a mix of clouds through most of the day with scattered showers possible, mainly Wednesday night. Temperature and rain chances will climb again on Thursday. Highs will reach the low 70s but it will be another soggy day. The biggest chance for rain will be through the afternoon to evening.

Much colder air will move in for the weekend. Highs will drop to the mid 40s on Friday with clearing skies. Temperatures will struggle to reach 40 on Saturday.
