Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A threat for severe storms… Today will bring the biggest chances for rain and storms this week. Expect scattered showers and storms mainly this afternoon to evening. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible. Our biggest severe threats will be gusty winds and heavy downpours. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s today. It will still be muggy so it will feel more like the low 90s.

Highs will dip to the mid 80s on Thursday, but it will still be humid. Afternoon heat index values will reach to near 90. We will see partly cloudy skies with scattered showers and storms possible.

Expect mostly sunny skies on Friday with low rain chances. Highs will warm to the low 90s but it will feel more like the mid 90s by the afternoon.

The summer trend will continue for the holiday weekend. Expect highs near 90 on Saturday and in the mid 80s on Sunday. We will see partly cloudy skies with afternoon scattered showers/storms.
