Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

A weak cold front will approach late tonight and into Monday. Skies will be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s.

Scattered showers will be possible Monday morning with better chances for showers and storms as the front stalls along the coast by Monday afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has the 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 winds, frequent lightning and heavy downpours.

Once the cold front moves through, don't expect a whole lot of relief on Tuesday. We really won't see much of a difference in temperature. Highs will continue to warm to the upper 80s to low 90s. Should stay mostly dry on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure will be in the area. Keeping a slight 20 percent chance though for a stray shower or storm.

Storm chances will increase by Friday and Saturday as a few disturbances move through the area. Humidity will once again be on the rise with heat index values ranging from 100-105 degrees. Even better chances to see some wet weather by Sunday. Temperatures will continue to trend above normal with highs in the low 90s.
