Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Temperatures will fall into the upper 40s to near 50 overnight with a chance of showers as an area of low pressure approaches.Widespread rain will be the story to start the work week as an area of low pressure pushes northeast along a stalled front. Rain will be heavy at times. We could see anywhere from 0.5 to 1.5" of rain from this system. There will be a wide range in high temperatures. Northern communities will be closer to the low 50s while folks in North Carolina will break into the 60s. Rain will move out by the late afternoon and evening with clearing skies overnight. Temperatures will plummet into the mid 30s.

Plenty of sunshine on Tuesday as high pressure builds in from Canada. It will be a blustery day with winds out of the north at 10-15 mph. This will make our highs in the mid 40s feel like the 30s for most of the day. Be sure to bundle up because that sunshine will be deceiving! Low temperatures will be in the mid 30s.

Another wet day on tap for Wednesday. We will have another area of low pressure move in which will bring rain to the area. Expect rain throughout the day with highs in the mid and upper 50s. Temperatures will drop into the 30s overnight. High pressure will build in on Thursday with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 40s. Another day where the sunshine will be deceiving us! Temperatures will fall to near freezing overnight.

Mostly sunny to end the work week as high pressure remains in control. Temperatures will be identical to Thursday with highs in the mid 40s. Even colder though overnight with lows in the upper 20s and low 30s.

Rain chances will remain low on Saturday and temperatures will begin to trend closer to normal with highs near 50. Another system will approach late Saturday and Sunday, so keeping a slight chance for some scattered showers Sunday with highs in the mid 50s.
