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.SUNNY AND WARM

A beautiful day with plenty of sunshine is on the way for Southwest Florida today. We start the morning with temperatures in the upper 50s in the inland areas to the upper 60s at the coastline. You could see some patchy dense fog for your morning commute, especially in the inland areas. It will be another warm day with our afternoon high temperatures reaching into the mid 80s. Winds from the southeast will be around 10 - 15 mph with some higher gusts. Then we'll get a late afternoon sea breeze near the coastline. For tomorrow and into the weekend, we don't see any big changes in that pattern. By Sunday, there could be just a few more clouds coming into the mix.

There is another cold front headed toward Southwest Florida, but it won't be here until late Monday into Tuesday. That front will bring our next chance for rain, followed by a short-lived cool down. Return to index of stories...

Weather Trends

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.SUNNY AND WARM

A beautiful day with plenty of sunshine is on the way for Southwest Florida today. We start the morning with temperatures in the upper 50s in the inland areas to the upper 60s at the coastline. You could see some patchy dense fog for your morning commute, especially in the inland areas. It will be another warm day with our afternoon high temperatures reaching into the mid 80s. Winds from the southeast will be around 10 - 15 mph with some higher gusts. Then we'll get a late afternoon sea breeze near the coastline. For tomorrow and into the weekend, we don't see any big changes in that pattern. By Sunday, there could be just a few more clouds coming into the mix.

There is another cold front headed toward Southwest Florida, but it won't be here until late Monday into Tuesday. That front will bring our next chance for rain, followed by a short-lived cool down. Return to index of stories...
