Meteorologist Maddie Kirker's First Warning Forecast:
Colder and sunny today, tracking showers and storms to begin the New Year...
Yesterday's weak cold front is moving offshore this morning and as a result, we're gearing up for a bright and sunny morning. Despite the sunshine, afternoon temperatures will only be in the mid 40s today and elevated winds behind the front out of the north, will lead to feels like temperatures in the 30s!
Skies will be clear tonight and lows will be around freezing.
Wednesday will be another quiet weather day with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low 50s. Winds will be light out of the south between 5 and 10 mph.
There's been some small changes in the forecast for later this week, but the overall theme (showers and storms Friday) remains the same. New Year's Eve will feature cloudy skies with much warmer highs in low 60s. High pressure may stall our chance of showers during the day on Thursday, but rain still looks likely after midnight on New Year's Day. Our highest chance of showers and storms will be on Friday. Highs will be even warmer on Friday and in the upper 60s.
The biggest change to the forecast is the continuance of warm air on Saturday as the system moves out. Highs will be warm Saturday and in the upper 60s. Much colder with more sunshine Sunday, with highs in the upper 40s.
