Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:

We have been enjoying plenty of comfortable, dry weather for the past few days. But be warned: both of those things will be changing over the next few days.'

A slow moving frontal boundary will push toward the region over the next few days and will become the focus for showers and even some thunderstorms.

We could see a few light showers well ahead of that front on Tuesday afternoon.

But it looks like the bulk of the rain will be moving in on Wednesday, with a good chance for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.

A few of those may linger into Thursday, but most of the day should be dry.

On Friday an area of low pressure will develop along that same frontal boundary bringing us a chance for afternoon showers and storms and it looks like we have a good chance for showers and thunderstorms throughout the day on Saturday.

Despite the rain moving in, temperatures and humidity levels will be rising over the next few days. Most of us will climb into the mid 80s on Tuesday. However, with a southeast wind off of the water it will be a few degrees cooler along the coast.

Wednesday and Thursday look to be our steamiest days, with high temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 and heat index values close to 95°.

Things will be cooling off by Friday and into the weekend. As a matter of fact, some of us may not get out of the 70s on Saturday. Sunday will be a little warmer and a lot drier.
