FIRST WEATHER-ANIBOX


FIRST WEATHERSHOWERS AND STORMS HEADING INTO SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

It has been warm and muggy through the day and now showers and storms are starting to move into the area. A cold front is approaching from the Gulf of Mexico and will be the driving force to give us scattered showers and storms through the balance of the afternoon, evening and even into the overnight hours. By Saturday morning we'll be back to drying things out again. Overnight lows will be near 70 degrees, but behind the front we'll only warm into the lower 80s for afternoon highs on Saturday. It will also be windy behind the front on Saturday with winds from the west gusting around 25 mph. Cloud cover will be decreasing through the day Saturday.

Then, overnight Saturday into Sunday, winds will turn more northwesterly and that will continue to send in cooler, drier air. Morning lows will be in the lower 60s to start Sunday morning. That means you may even want that light jacket as you head out to Easter sunrise services. Highs for Easter Sunday will be in the low to mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Looking ahead; we'll stay on track for mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 80s through the work week. Return to index of stories...

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

SHOWERS AND STORMS HEADING INTO SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

It has been warm and muggy through the day and now showers and storms are starting to move into the area. A cold front is approaching from the Gulf of Mexico and will be the driving force to give us scattered showers and storms through the balance of the afternoon, evening and even into the overnight hours. By Saturday morning we'll be back to drying things out again. Overnight lows will be near 70 degrees, but behind the front we'll only warm into the lower 80s for afternoon highs on Saturday. It will also be windy behind the front on Saturday with winds from the west gusting around 25 mph. Cloud cover will be decreasing through the day Saturday.

Then, overnight Saturday into Sunday, winds will turn more northwesterly and that will continue to send in cooler, drier air. Morning lows will be in the lower 60s to start Sunday morning. That means you may even want that light jacket as you head out to Easter sunrise services. Highs for Easter Sunday will be in the low to mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.
