Full Forecast

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.

MAINLY SUNNY AND WARMER

The warm, sunny weather will continue today. We start with mild temperatures and some patchy fog this morning, but we will quickly start warming up and the fog will mix out once the sun comes up. Afternoon high temperatures are headed into the mid 80s with lower 80s expected on the beaches and upper 80s in those deep inland warm spots. Winds will be light and variable through the morning, turning onshore this afternoon at around 10 mph. Rain chances will stay low, but a stray shower deep inland near Lake Okeechobee can't be ruled out.

For tomorrow on through the weekend, mostly sunny skies will continue and temperatures will continue to climb just a bit each day. Humidity will also be on the rise through the weekend.

If you are waiting for our next rain chance to come our way, you'll have to wait until the middle of next week when a cold front approaches our area. Return to index of stories...

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

MAINLY SUNNY AND WARMER

The warm, sunny weather will continue today. We start with mild temperatures and some patchy fog this morning, but we will quickly start warming up and the fog will mix out once the sun comes up. Afternoon high temperatures are headed into the mid 80s with lower 80s expected on the beaches and upper 80s in those deep inland warm spots. Winds will be light and variable through the morning, turning onshore this afternoon at around 10 mph. Rain chances will stay low, but a stray shower deep inland near Lake Okeechobee can't be ruled out.

For tomorrow on through the weekend, mostly sunny skies will continue and temperatures will continue to climb just a bit each day. Humidity will also be on the rise through the weekend.

If you are waiting for our next rain chance to come our way, you'll have to wait until the middle of next week when a cold front approaches our area. Return to index of stories...
