First Warning Forecast: Chance for more rain, but a little improvement is in sight


Chance for more rain, but a little improvement is in sight….As we move through our Friday,  some of us may have to dodge a few showers and storms as an upper level low continues to meander over the area. Some of the rain could be heavy at times. Otherwise, expect more clouds than sun with highs in the lower 80s. On Saturday, expect a few more showers and storms with highs in the lower 80s. Some moisture may even linger around in Sunday. By early next week, though, we start to see a break in the pattern as the low lifts to the north, giving way to sunshine. Highs will be in the 70s.


Today: Patchy Fog. Clouds and Sun. Chance of Storms (40%). Highs in the lower 80s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Storms (40%). Lows in the low 70s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: More Clouds Than Sun. Chance of Showers (30%). Highs in the lower 80s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
