Wednesday’s First Warning Forecast: A return to sunshine and a warm up

Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Clearing skies and a warm up… We will start with mostly cloudy skies this morning but clouds will clear through the day. We should see plenty of sunshine this afternoon with highs warming into the mid 80s. Skies will remain clear tonight with lows near 70.

 

It will still be warm tomorrow with highs returning to the mid 80s. Expect a mix of sun and clouds through the day with scattered showers and storms. Severe storms are unlikely but heavy downpours are possible. Highs will dip into the low 80s for the end of the week and weekend. We will see several days with partly cloudy skies and slim rain chances.

 

Jose is expected to track between the East Coast and Bermuda early next week. The exact path will determine how much of an impact we see but it looks like the core of the storm will stay over the Atlantic.

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows near 70. Winds: S 5-10
