THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TEMPERATURES DROPPING THIS WEEK

A cool-down is coming, but it won't last too long. Starting tomorrow our forecast will look a little unsettled for a few days. Variable clouds will move overhead on Wednesday and, unfortunately, no significant rain will move in with the clouds. The humidity should be lower tomorrow as the winds pick up from the northwest. The boating forecast calls for 2 - 3 foot seas during the day tomorrow; however, seas will increase tomorrow evening and a Small Craft Advisory will likely be issued for Thursday. Dropping temperatures will be the story for the next few days. Tonight we go into the 50's for lows and will recover to 75 in the afternoon. Tomorrow night, we will drop into the 40's and it will be windy and very chilly on Thursday with highs only in the 60's. The mini-cold snap will only last a few days and we should rebound to 80 degrees by the weekend. Return to index of stories...
