Thursday’s First Warning Forecast: Rain, wind, snowflakes, and falling temps.
Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Strong winds and falling temperatures… Showers and storms pushed through this morning as a cold front pushed off of the coast. A few scattered showers will linger through mid-morning with some sunshine blending in for the afternoon. Colder air will plunge in behind the front. Temperatures will fall from the 50s into the low and mid 40s through midday. As the temperatures fall, a few flurries or snow showers could mix in but little to no snow accumulation is expected. The Eastern Shore has the best chance to see any snow accumulation. It will also be very windy today with wind gusts to 40+ mph. Skies will clear tonight with overnight lows falling into the 20s.
Friday will be our coldest day, starting the 20s and only reaching the low 40s. We will see sunshine Friday morning with clouds building in for the afternoon. Winds will not be as strong or gusty tomorrow.
Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds for the weekend with very slim rain chances. We will warm into the mid 60s on Saturday and into the low 70s on Sunday.
