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.

AM FOG FOLLOWED BY PLENTY OF SUNSHINE

We start our day with mainly clear skies and mild conditions. The one concern through the morning hours will be the development of some dense fog. It happened yesterday morning and the atmospheric set up isn't much different today, so it is likely to happen again and stick around for a few hours. Once we are past the morning fog, we'll see another beautiful day with mostly sunny skies. Afternoon highs will reach into the lower 80s. Upper 70s are expected at the beaches with the sea breeze keeping things a little cooler there.

For Friday and the weekend, we'll continue with highs in the mid 80s and lows will climb from the low to mid 60s. Through the weekend, cloud cover will be increasing, but it shouldn't really bother your weekend plans. Right now, the chance for any rain through the weekend remains very low. Into next week, there will be a chance for showers arriving on Tuesday. We'll keep tracking and updating your forecast for the weekend and into next week, so check back often.

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.

AM FOG FOLLOWED BY PLENTY OF SUNSHINE

We start our day with mainly clear skies and mild conditions. The one concern through the morning hours will be the development of some dense fog. It happened yesterday morning and the atmospheric set up isn't much different today, so it is likely to happen again and stick around for a few hours. Once we are past the morning fog, we'll see another beautiful day with mostly sunny skies. Afternoon highs will reach into the lower 80s. Upper 70s are expected at the beaches with the sea breeze keeping things a little cooler there.

For Friday and the weekend, we'll continue with highs in the mid 80s and lows will climb from the low to mid 60s. Through the weekend, cloud cover will be increasing, but it shouldn't really bother your weekend plans. Right now, the chance for any rain through the weekend remains very low. Into next week, there will be a chance for showers arriving on Tuesday. We'll keep tracking and updating your forecast for the weekend and into next week, so check back often.
