FORECAST OPEN

NEW! Return to index of stories...


FORECAST-WXWALL


Thanks to a cool front that moved through Southwest Florida last night, we've got a cooler, less humid evening on the way with temperatures quickly settling into the 60s for the first half of the night and then falling into the 50s by early Monday morning.

The cooler spots overnight will be to the north and deeper inland around Arcadia and Palmdale where temps may drop as low as the lower 50s or upper 40s. The rest of Southwest Florida will spend the early morning hours Monday in the mid to upper 50s.

We've got some great weather in the works to start the week on Monday and Tuesday. After kicking off each morning with temps in the 50s, we'll warm up nicely by the afternoon with highs in the upper 70s Monday and low 80s Tuesday. Both days will feature plenty of sun and only a few clouds.

Wednesday will be a transition day for us as the next cold front approaches Southwest Florida, bringing in some scattered rain and lots of clouds from Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

This next front should clear the area by Thursday afternoon, leaving us with some cooler weather and lower humidity for the end of the week.

Daytime highs on Thursday and Friday should only manage to reach the mid 70s while overnight lows dip down into the low 50s.

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. Return to index of stories...
