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.

"A quiet week of weather"

"Mainly dry weather is expected warming temps through the weekend"

As we progress through the rest of the week, we'll continue to see a mainly dry pattern with warming temperatures through the weekend.

As we head into the evening hours, expect mostly clear skies and temperatures falling into the middle 70s. As winds go relatively calm overnight, patchy fog may develop once again by early tomorrow morning.

We'll start our Thursday with temperatures in the middle 60s, with highs forecast to climb into the middle 80s during the afternoon. Mostly to partly sunny skies will prevail and humidity levels will stay rather pleasant for this time of year. The remnants of a weak cool front combined with a ripple of energy in the upper atmosphere means a few more clouds across our skies and a very small window of opportunity for a stray afternoon shower across our inland communities.

For Friday and beyond, high pressure will continue to dominate our weather pattern keeping our rain prospects very low. Temperatures will get a big boost into the upper 80s, while inland spots reach the lower 90s with increasing humidity. Our next chance for rain arrives Wednesday and into early Thursday of next week.
