Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Mostly cloudy overnight with a slight chance of showers. Temperatures will be cool to the upper 60s and low 70s.

Tuesday will be on the wet side as a cold front slowly moves through along with an area of low pressure. Temperatures will warm to the mid and upper 70s. Heavy rain will be possible especially overnight and Wednesday. This could lead to flooding since the ground is already saturated. 1 to 3 inches of rain is possible. We could even see higher amounts where we do see storms develop. We not only have a threat of flooding, but severe weather is also possible on Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center does have the entire area under a level 1 for severe weather, which means an isolated severe storm is not out of the question. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts and heavy rain. The threat of flooding will continue into Wednesday with highs in the mid 70s.

A few lingering showers will be possible by Thursday morning, but we should also see some clearing with highs in the low 70s and less humid conditions.

Much cooler air will filter in to end the work week and into the weekend. Expect highs in the upper 60s with a slight 20 percent chance for a shower on Friday.

Expect plenty of sunshine heading into the weekend with highs in the upper 60s.
