Showers and storms, then sunshine and 80s….If you’ve been waiting for the rain to go away, we’ve got some good news in your First Warning Storm Team Forecast.

As we move through our Tuesday night, expect mostly cloudy skies. A few scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible as an area of low pressure slowly spins away from us. Areas of patchy fog are possible.  Low temperatures will be in the lower 60s.

On Wednesday, we’ll start the day with low clouds and patchy fog. An isolated shower is possible. However, as low pressure pushes farther away from our area through the day, we’ll see gradual clearing, with a mix of sun and clouds by mid-to-late afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70s.

More sunshine is in the forecast for Thursday. Highs will soar into the mid 80s!  A cold front will approach the area on Friday. We could see a few isolated showers, but the front will do little to cool us down. Highs will remain in the 80s Friday.  More 80s are in the forecast for the weekend.

 

 

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers. Isolated Storms Possible (30%). Patchy Fog. Lows in the lower 60s. Winds: E/N/W 5-10 mph.
