Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Showers and storms moving in… A cold front will move in from west to east tonight, bringing us rain and the potential for severe storms. Expect mostly cloudy skies today with scattered showers and storms firing up by midday out ahead of the cold front. Highs will warm to the upper 70s today with winds picking up. Our biggest chance for storms will be overnight. Severe storms are possible with the potential for damaging wind gusts, localized flooding, and isolated tornadoes.

Showers and clouds will linger for Tuesday, but we should see some clearing. Highs will only reach the upper 60s to near 70 tomorrow. It will be windy with NW winds at 10 to 20 mph and higher gusts.

Wednesday will be cool and windy with highs in the mid to upper 60s and strong NW winds. Expect partly cloudy skies with low rain chances. Rain will return for the end of the week, Thursday night to Friday.

Tropical Update
A non-tropical low pressure system is expected to form off the east coast of the United States during the next day or so. The frontal low will move generally NNE through the middle of the week, and the system will likely bring rain and wind impacts to portions of the mid-Atlantic and northeast U.S. coast. By the end of the week, the low could acquire some tropical or subtropical characteristics while it moves east away from the U.S. coast.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)
