Meteorologist Maddie Kirker’s First Warning Forecast
Get ready for a chilly night with clear skies and strong winds out of the NW at 10 to 20 and gusts to 30 mph. Lows will plummet to the upper 30s but the wind will make it feel even colder and more like the upper 20s and lower 30s.
Highs will only reach the upper 40s on Friday, almost 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. We will still see sunshine again Friday, but it will still be breezy, north at 10 to 15 mph. Wind chills during the afternoon will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
Saturday will start off dry with increasing clouds. Our next round of rain is set to move in Saturday night to Sunday. Sunday will be soggy. Highs will warm from the upper 40s on Saturday to near 60 on Sunday.
Showers will linger into the early morning hours Monday before moving out by mid-morning. We’ll have more clouds than sun Monday with highs in the low 50s.
