Patrick’s First Warning Forecast: From cold and dry to warm and wet
Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast
If it wasn’t chilly enough for you today, just wait until you wake up on Wednesday morning.
A reinforcing blast of colder air will push through the region overnight. That will drop our temperatures and kick up our winds. Most of us will wake up to wind chills in the 20s and some of us may even drop into the teens for our feels-like temperatures tomorrow morning.
And those gusty winds will be with us through much of the day, making our high temperatures in the mid-40s feel more like the 20s and 30s, despite plenty of sunshine.
Thursday brings more chilly air and more sunshine, but lighter winds. That means it will feel more comfortable than Wednesday.
A storm system begins to approach our region on Friday. Ahead of the rain we can expect milder weather, with high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 50s. By late in the afternoon scattered showers are possible and it looks like the showers will stick around for your Saturday. We have a 50% chance for rain both Friday and Saturday with high temperatures around 60 for the first day of the weekend.
Sunday brings even warmer air with high temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70°! But we do expect plenty of clouds around on Sunday with a slight chance for rain.
