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.

QUIETER WEATHER FOR FRIDAY

It was a very stormy Thursday across Southwest Florida, as a powerful storm system lifted northeastward out of the Gulf. The severe weather threat is over, but rain showers will continue this evening, with temps holding in the 60s. The rain will clear out overnight, with lows in the mid 60s.

Our storm system exits Friday, resulting in quieter weather. We'll keep some cloud cover around, with more sun expected late in the day. Cooler air will also move in, with highs only in the mid 70s.

The weekend remains in great shape. We'll see a heavy dose of sun and low humidity both Saturday and Sunday. Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 70s, with temps on Sunday in the low 80s. It will crisp in the morning, with lows both days in the 50s.

The nice weather looks to continue into next week. Mostly sunny skies will prevail Monday, with highs in the low 80s.

A few more clouds return Tuesday, with highs in the low to mid 80s.

It still looks like our next storm system will arrive midweek, bringing a good chance of showers across the area. Another round of cooler weather is now expected to close next week. Return to index of stories...
