Meteorologist Maddie Kirker's First Warning Forecast
Below normal for the First Day of Fall with plenty of sunshine and less wind...
A flannel or jacket is necessary as you head out the door this morning! Temperatures are a bit chilly, and in the mid 40s inland and mid 50s closer to the coast. Thanks to building high pressure, skies will be completely sunny today. Highs will climb to near 70 which is still about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. Winds will back down today and turn more northwesterly between 5 and 15 mph.
Expect more sunshine Wednesday but with warmer high temperatures in the upper 70s. Thursday will also feature near normal highs in the upper 70s, but clouds will increase throughout the day. Strong high pressure will keep rain chances low through the work week.
By the upcoming weekend, tropical moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Beta may move in across the region leading to a chance of rain both Saturday and Sunday. Highs this weekend will stay seasonable and in the mid to upper 70s.
