Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Big warm up on the way… Most of us will wake up to temperatures in the 40s again this morning. We will warm to the upper 60s this afternoon, just a few degrees warmer than yesterday. Expect a mix of mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies today with more clouds to the SW and more sun to the NE.

South winds will help warm us up to the mid 70s on Thursday. A warm front will brush by to our west, mixing in some extra clouds and a few isolated showers. Sunshine will return for Friday with temperatures reaching the mid 80s.

We are watching a small chance for showers this weekend as a string of fronts slides by just to our north. As of now, expect partly cloudy skies with an isolated shower possible. Highs will return to the mid 80s on Saturday, then slip to the low 80s on Sunday.

Today: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. Highs in the upper 60s. Winds: N/E 5-10

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the low 50s. Winds: SE/S 5-10

Tomorrow: Mix of Clouds, Isolated Shower. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: S 5-15

Tropical Update

A broad area of low pressure is expected to develop late this week or early this weekend a couple of hundred miles north of the Bahamas. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system, and a subtropical depression or storm is likely to form this weekend while it moves northeast over the western Atlantic.

* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)

* Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)
