NATIONAL WX FORECAST-WXWALL


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.

It was a somewhat cloudy and warm day across the area Wednesday, with highs in the low to mid 80s. Expect the clouds to continue this evening, with temps holding in the 70s. Areas of fog may develop later tonight, with lows holding in the upper 60s.

Our frontal system stays near the region Thursday. This will again result in plenty of cloud cover and a chance for scattered showers across the area. Thursday will also be muggy, with highs climbing into the low 80s.

The mostly cloudy skies remain in place for Friday, with a lesser chance of a rain shower. Highs to close the work week will hold in the low 80s.

We start the weekend with some sunshine, then scattered showers will likely develop late in the day. Saturday will again be muggy, with highs staying in the low 80s.

The frontal boundary finally moves through the area Sunday. This will end the rain chance and bring cooler conditions. Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 70s.

We start next week on a quiet and sunny note. Monday will feature plenty of sunshine with comfortable highs in the upper 70s.

Most of next week again looks fairly quiet, with temps slowly warming into the low 80s by midweek. Return to index of stories...
