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.

After some heavy downpours and strong storms Thursday afternoon, we'll stay warm and muggy under mainly cloudy skies with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s tonight into Friday morning.

For Friday, we'll see mainly cloudy skies. There will be showers and storms popping up again, but it looks like it will be another late day event as an area of low pressure moves in from the Gulf of Mexico.even later than today's rain. If you have plans early in the day even into theafternoon time frame, you shouldn't have any problems. The late evening plans could start to see rain, though. Expect that some of the storms that pop up could once again be on the strong to severe side. Most of the rain will be overnight into Saturday morning.

The rain should come to an end by about 8 or 9 in the morning. Through the day Saturday, we'll dry things out and even get the sunshine to return. Afternoon high temperatures will reach into the lower 80s.

If you are planning to attend sunrise services on Easter Sunday, temperatures will be near 60 degrees. That is rather cool by Southwest Florida standards for this time of year, so you may want the light sweater for that early morning time frame. Then we'll warm to the lower to mid 80s for Easter Sunday afternoon. Return to index of stories...
