FIRST ALERT 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.

RACKING A BRIEF COOL-DOWN

The rain from yesterday and last night continues to move away from the area as a cold front sweeps through south Florida tonight. Forecast computer models indicate that this frontal passage could bring us some chilly weather tonight and tomorrow. Winds will pick up as well and a Small Craft Advisory is posted for the Gulf of Mexico waters through noon tomorrow. Temperatures tonight will likely fall below 50 degrees north of the Caloosahatchee River and inland counties. Along and near the coast the lows tomorrow morning will be in the lower 50's. The average low temperature for this time of year is 61 degrees, so Wednesday morning is looking chilly by March standards.

The forecast tomorrow calls for lots of sunshine and highs in the mid 70's. also below average for March. By Thursday we will warm back to the 80's as a few clouds begin to return overhead.

Rain showers are possible late Friday and on Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend. It shouldn't be a complete rain-out this weekend; however, the chance for showers is about 50% both days. Return to index of stories...
