Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Warming up… After a chilly start this morning (in the 30s and 40s) we will warm to near 70 this afternoon, near normal for this time of year. Expect a mix of sun and clouds today with an isolated shower possible.

Temperatures will warm to near 80 on Wednesday. We will see partly cloudy skies with an isolated shower possible. Winds will pick up tomorrow, south at 10 to 20 mph.

Thursday will be the soggy day of the week. Showers and storms are likely as a cold front moves through. Strong to severe storms are possible, mainly in North Carolina. It will still be windy on Thursday, south at 10 to 20 with gusts to 30+ mph.

Cooler air will move in behind the front and highs will dip into the 60s on Friday. A few leftover showers will wrap in on the back side of this system as it moves out. Highs will warm back to the 70s and 80s this weekend.

Today: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Shower. Highs near 70. Winds: N/W/S 5-10
