Meteorologist Maddie Kirker’s First Warning Forecast
Wind Chills in the 20s and the coldest air so far this season… After a sunny Wednesday, expect clear skies tonight with lows in the 40s near the coast and 30s inland. The wind will relax overnight.
We will see sunny skies Thursday morning with clouds building in through the afternoon. Highs will warm to near 70. Our next round of rain will move in Thursday night to early Friday morning with a cold front. Rain should move in after 8 PM Thursday and move out by sunrise Friday.
The cold front will also bring in a major cool down. High temperatures will struggle to reach 50 on Friday. It will even feel about 10 degrees colder due to strong north winds (15-25G35 mph). Temperatures will drop into the 30s Friday night with wind chill values in the 20s.
This weekend will be nice but chilly. Expect a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday with highs in the upper 40s. Winds will relax through the day. We will see more sunshine on Sunday as temperatures warm to the upper 50s.
