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


Today's Weather Story

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.

"More clouds with a few showers"

After a stretch of beautiful weather across Southwest Florida, some changes will take place today as a disturbance crosses the Gulf of Mexico. This system will increase the cloud cover, while bringing in our only chance for rain this week.

Our day will get off to a milder start with temperatures in the middle to upper 60s area wide. Skies will cloud up during the morning hours as a disturbance crosses the Gulf of Mexico towards Florida, with a stray shower or two washing in from the west. Through the afternoon, expect a mix of clouds and some sun at times with a few showers developing across the area. Despite the clouds, daytime highs will manage to climb into the lower 80s, with upper 70s across our beaches and coastal locations.

During the evening, a couple of rain areas will be possible with the passing of a cold front. Overnight, expect clouds to decrease as cooler and drier weather settles down the peninsula. Temperatures by dawn will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Dry high pressure will follow the front, which will result in a sunnier Thursday. Daytime highs will be unseasonably cool as they max out in the lower half of the 70s with a breezy northerly wind. We're in store for a late winter chill as temperatures dip into the middle to upper 40s by early Friday morning. Sunny skies will close out the work week and gradual warming trend will commence as we head into the weekend with afternoon highs returning to the lower 80s. Another dose of rain remains in the forecast for early next week. Return to index of stories...

5:32 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Today's Weather Story

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.

"More clouds with a few showers"

After a stretch of beautiful weather across Southwest Florida, some changes will take place today as a disturbance crosses the Gulf of Mexico. This system will increase the cloud cover, while bringing in our only chance for rain this week.

Our day will get off to a milder start with temperatures in the middle to upper 60s area wide. Skies will cloud up during the morning hours as a disturbance crosses the Gulf of Mexico towards Florida, with a stray shower or two washing in from the west. Through the afternoon, expect a mix of clouds and some sun at times with a few showers developing across the area. Despite the clouds, daytime highs will manage to climb into the lower 80s, with upper 70s across our beaches and coastal locations.

During the evening, a couple of rain areas will be possible with the passing of a cold front. Overnight, expect clouds to decrease as cooler and drier weather settles down the peninsula. Temperatures by dawn will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Dry high pressure will follow the front, which will result in a sunnier Thursday. Daytime highs will be unseasonably cool as they max out in the lower half of the 70s with a breezy northerly wind. We're in store for a late winter chill as temperatures dip into the middle to upper 40s by early Friday morning. Sunny skies will close out the work week and gradual warming trend will commence as we head into the weekend with afternoon highs returning to the lower 80s. Another dose of rain remains in the forecast for early next week. Return to index of stories...
