Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Warm, windy, and a threat for severe storms… A cold front will push through the region today, bringing us rain, storms, strong winds, and more temperature changes. Showers and storms will move in from west to east from Noon to 4 PM. Strong to severe storms are possible, with a threat for damaging winds, hail, and even tornadoes. It will be windy all day with southwest winds at 10 to 20 mph and gusts to 30+ mph. Rain and clouds will quickly exit late this afternoon with highs in the low 70s. Winds will shift to northwest behind the front, bringing in cooler air.
Expect mainly clear skies tonight with lows falling into the upper 30s. It will still be windy tonight with northwest winds at 10 to 20 and gusts to 30 mph. Winds will make it feel more like the lower 30s by early Thursday morning.
It will be sunny but much cooler Thursday with highs in the mid 50s. We will warm back into the low 70s on Friday, about 10 degrees above normal. Rain chances will be slim to end the work week.
