Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

Tomorrow we could wake up to some patchy fog with temperatures in the 70s. We will have a small break from the heat for midweek but still hot. On Tuesday, highs will slip into the upper 80s, near normal for this time of year. It will still be muggy so afternoon heat index values will reach the mid to upper 90s. Expect mostly sunny skies tomorrow.


The Fourth of July forecast is looking very typical for this time of year. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. An isolated afternoon shower/storm is possible but most areas will stay dry. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s, near normal. Afternoon heat index will reach the mid 90s. Our chances for showers and storms will increase for the end of the week.

Thursday and Friday we will slowly start to warm back up with a 40% chance of showers both days.


Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: SE 5-10
