Ron Bates - Medical Billing Expert // 31:22 do the hospitals want the general public to know about their costs, about the ranges in costs? No, that's why you don't see a simple breakdown on their websites. 31:32

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


GREAT WEATHER CONTINUES

After an absolutely beautiful weekend of winter weather in Florida. the trend looks to continue for most of this week. Tonight will be mostly clear with temperatures cooling into the mid 50's. Lows will drop to the upper 40's in some of our cooler, inland locations. Tomorrow's forecast looks nice with mostly sunny weather throughout the day. Highs tomorrow will reach the lower 80's during the afternoon. A sea breeze by late day will cap the beach temperatures in the upper 70's. Dry weather is expected for the next 4 days before another cold front tries to move into Florida this weekend. The chance for rain is very low; however, you may notice a little increase in humidity each day this week. Winds will come around to the south/southeast by Thursday/Friday.

The weekend weather may scare up a few rain showers and increase the clouds, but at this point it certainly doesn't look like a wash-out weekend is in the making.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.
