Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

More rain and storms on the way… We will get a chance to dry out today. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds today with slim rain chances. Highs will reach the mid to upper 50s today, a few degrees below normal for this time of year. Clouds will build in this evening and tonight with rain moving in overnight.

Wednesday will be another soggy day. Expect widespread rain Wednesday morning with isolated strong to severe storms possible. Gusty winds and heavy rain will be the biggest threats, but an isolated tornado is possible. Most of the area will see 1”+ of rainfall, mainly Wednesday morning. Scattered showers will continue through the afternoon and evening. We will try to warm into the 60s tomorrow, but that could be tough with the rain and clouds.

Thursday is looking like the nicest day of the week with sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 60s. We will warm into the 70s on Friday with a mix of clouds and scattered showers possible. Highs will warm to near 80° on Saturday.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers. Lows in the upper 40s. Winds: E 5-15
