Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

A secondary line of storms will move through in the early afternoon (2 PM to 5 PM). It will be an extremely windy day, even outside of the thunderstorms. Expect S/SW winds at 20 to 40 mph with gusts 50 to 60 mph. This could lead to downed trees and power outages. High Wind Warnings and Wind Advisories are in effect for the area through this evening. Any leftover showers and storms will move out early this evening with clearing skies. Winds will also back down tonight, turning west to north at 10 to 15 mph.
High pressure will build in with lows dipping into the mid 50s.

Tuesday is looking mostly dry, but much cooler. Expect a 15-20 degree temperature drop with highs in the low 60s. A chance of showers Tuesday night, with widespread rain possible Wednesday. Expect another big drop in temperatures with highs the low and mid 50s. This will be the coolest day of the week.

Thursday is looking milder and drier with highs in the low 60s. Temperatures will be near-normal to end the week with highs in the mid 60s. Another system will move in just in time for the weekend. This will give us a chance for more wet weather by late Friday and early Saturday.
