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.

WARMER FOR THE WEEKEND

It was a sun-filled but somewhat cool Valentine's Day across Southwest Florida, with highs only in the mid to upper 60s. If you're heading out to celebrate this evening, make sure to bring a jacket, with temps falling into the 50s. Overnight lows will not be as chilly, with temps holding in the mid 50s.

We start a slow warming trend for the weekend, with highs on Saturday climbing into the low 70s. A weak cool front will work through the area late Saturday, bringing a few clouds and a reinforcing shot of cool air. This cool air will bring lows Saturday Night down in the mid 40s, with low 40s possible inland.

Despite the cool air in the morning, the warmup will march on Sunday. Expect plenty of sun and highs climbing into the mid 70s.

The quiet and dry weather still looks to continue into next week. Sunshine will continue for President's Day, with highs in the upper 70s. More sun is likely on Tuesday, with temps back in the low 80s.

A touch more moisture will arrive midweek, bringing a few more clouds to the area. Highs by Thursday will push into the mid 80s.

It still looks like no major weather systems will affect the region over the next 7 days. Return to index of stories...
