Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Mild and breezy overnight with lows in the 60s.

***Thursday is a First Warning Action Day

Rain and possible storms will become widespread by Thursday late morning/afternoon as a cold front slowly makes it's way across the area. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area starting Thursday morning and running through Thursday evening. Strong to severe storms are possible. The Storm Prediction Center has the area under a Level 1, which mean isolated severe storms are possible. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts and heavy rain. Heavy rain will be likely throughout the day with 2-3+ inches possible. Temperatures will warm to the low 70s. A chance of showers overnight with lows in the mid 50s.

Cooler on Friday with highs in the low and mid 60s. An area of low pressure will move across the area bringing the chance for some showers and storms. We may even see a little graupel with some of these storms as some cooler air mixes in.

High pressure will build in just in time for the weekend. Expect highs in the low 70s on Saturday and near 80 on Sunday. Shower chances will increase on Sunday night into the day Monday.
