5:02 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


GORGEOUS WEATHER CONTINUES

Tuesday morning started off with seasonally cool temperatures in place across Southwest Florida. Through the day, an abundance of sunshine will continue as temperatures warm into the lower 80s. Winds from the east-southeast around 5-10 mph will turn onshore near the coast this afternoon. That afternoon sea breeze will keep the highs on the beaches just a bit cooler; topping out in the upper 70s. We don't have any rain chances today or through the rest of the work week. There will be subtle differences each day as winds turn a bit more southerly and transport more humidity and a few more clouds into our area by the end of the week.

Into the weekend, we'll bring in more clouds along with the chance for a few showers late Saturday into Sunday. By no means does this look like a wash out and right now, you should go on with your weekend planning.

By Monday, we are looking at better chances for scattered showers in the area.

Today's Weather Story

GORGEOUS WEATHER CONTINUES

Tuesday morning started off with seasonally cool temperatures in place across Southwest Florida. Through the day, an abundance of sunshine will continue as temperatures warm into the lower 80s. Winds from the east-southeast around 5-10 mph will turn onshore near the coast this afternoon. That afternoon sea breeze will keep the highs on the beaches just a bit cooler; topping out in the upper 70s. We don't have any rain chances today or through the rest of the work week. There will be subtle differences each day as winds turn a bit more southerly and transport more humidity and a few more clouds into our area by the end of the week.

Into the weekend, we'll bring in more clouds along with the chance for a few showers late Saturday into Sunday. By no means does this look like a wash out and right now, you should go on with your weekend planning.

By Monday, we are looking at better chances for scattered showers in the area.
