We’re tracking rain and cooler temps on the way….We hope you soaked up the sunshine today. We’re tracking rain, along with some cooler temperatures in your First Warning Storm Team Forecast.

As we move through our Wednesday evening, expect mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Then, tonight, clouds will increase late, ahead of our next weather maker, a cold front. Still, tonight should be dry. Low temperatures will be in the lower 50s.

On Thursday, grab your rain gear. The cold front will approach the area, giving way to scattered showers during the morning and possibly into the early afternoon. Some heavier pockets of rain are possible here and there. Otherwise, as we go through the mid afternoon into the evening, our skies will gradually clear. High temperatures will be in the lower 60s. It’s going to be windy, with winds from the west-southwest between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph.

With the front to our south on Friday, we’re expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, along with some cooler air. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s. This weekend, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid and upper 40s.
