Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

The heaviest rain may be moving out, but the gloom will stick with us for the next few days. Wednesday will be another cool, cloudy day with mist and drizzle possible.

And it looks like we will trade the heavy downpours for gusty winds. Expect a brisk northeast wind 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon.

That will help keep the temperatures in the 60s for a second day in a row.

And while most of Thursday will still be cloudy, a warm front crossing the region will send our temperatures climbing into the upper 70s and lower 80s. We should stay mainly dry with just a 25% chance for a stray shower.

We will really feel the effects of that warm front on Friday, with high temperatures climbing into the mid 80s and a 60% chance for showers and thunderstorms.

Just in time for the long holiday weekend our rain chances will be headed down. A few storms are possible on Saturday, but most of the day is looking dry and warm and more dry warm weather is expected for Sunday and Memorial Day on Monday.
