Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Warm today but a much cooler weekend… Temperatures will warm to the mid 80s today, about 25 degrees about normal for this time of year. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds today with low rain chances through the day. Southwest winds will ramp up with gusts to 30+ mph. Showers will build in tonight, ahead of a cold front set to move through on Saturday.

The cold front will bring in another round of rain and a big cool down. Expect showers Saturday morning with rain chances tapering off through the afternoon. Temperatures will start in the low 60s Saturday morning and fall into the low and mid 50s by the afternoon. It will still be windy but not as gusty tomorrow, N/NE at 10 to 20 mph.

Sunday will be the coolest day of the week with temperatures struggling to reach 50 degrees. It will feel like the 40s with NE winds at 10 to 20 mph. Expect a mix of clouds on Sunday with low rain chances during the day. Temperatures will warm up but rain returns for the first half of next week.
