Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Scattered showers will continue throughout the afternoon before winding down later tonight. On and off showers today will make for soggy conditions and many slow downs on the roadways. The biggest threat for severe storms will be west of Interstate 95, but we could see some pockets of heavy rain and gusty winds. Highs will warm to the low and mid 80s today and it will be muggy.
Friday will look and feel a lot like today. Highs will return to the low and mid 80s with high humidity. We will see mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and storms, especially in the afternoon.
We are tracking a cold front that will move in on Saturday. It will bring us another chance for scattered showers and storms but will also break us out of this soggy stretch. Skies will clear and cooler air will move in on Sunday. Expect highs near 80 on Saturday and highs in the low 70s on Sunday. Lower humidity will also move in behind the cold front.
Today: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms. Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SE/S 10-15G25
Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers. Lows in the low 70s. Winds: S 5-15
Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms. Highs in the low 80s. Winds: S 5-15G20
