5:00 WEATHER LEAD-WX WALL


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."Another hot and humid day"

The summer-like heat won't stop across Southwest Florida. Yesterday we officially topped out at 92° and while this isn't one for the record books, it's still about 5° above average. The trend of hot and humid days will continue before relief comes in the form of scattered rain by late in the week.

Our morning will get off to a very muggy start as temperatures remain unseasonably mild in the lower to middle 70s. A good amount of sunshine will prevail through the morning hours, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the middle 80s by noon. A southerly flow will continue to pump in more heat and moisture across the area. This combined with the seabreeze will allow for a few downpours and storms to develop along and east of the interstate. Daytime highs will eventually top out in the lower to middle 90s, with cooler readings at our beaches and coastal locations.

A very slight shower chance will continue through the evening hours, and temperatures will begin to settle into the lower 80s by sunset. Due to the extra humidity, temperatures will be slow to fall overnight as they bottom out in the lower 70s.

A slow moving storm system that continues to kick off rounds of severe weather across the south, will push itself down the Florida peninsula in a much weakened state. This will bring us a slight uptick to our rain prospects beginning Friday. As this front drapes itself across the southern half of the state, expect more clouds than sun Friday and Saturday with scattered rain and a few storms. Skies will turn a bit sunnier by late Sunday with drier weather building over the state. Return to index of stories...

5:30 WEATHER LEAD-WX WALL


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."Another hot and humid day"

The summer-like heat won't stop across Southwest Florida. Yesterday we officially topped out at 92° and while this isn't one for the record books, it's still about 5° above average. The trend of hot and humid days will continue before relief comes in the form of scattered rain by late in the week.

Our morning will get off to a very muggy start as temperatures remain unseasonably mild in the lower to middle 70s. A good amount of sunshine will prevail through the morning hours, allowing temperatures to climb quickly into the middle 80s by noon. A southerly flow will continue to pump in more heat and moisture across the area. This combined with the seabreeze will allow for a few downpours and storms to develop along and east of the interstate. Daytime highs will eventually top out in the lower to middle 90s, with cooler readings at our beaches and coastal locations.

A very slight shower chance will continue through the evening hours, and temperatures will begin to settle into the lower 80s by sunset. Due to the extra humidity, temperatures will be slow to fall overnight as they bottom out in the lower 70s.

A slow moving storm system that continues to kick off rounds of severe weather across the south, will push itself down the Florida peninsula in a much weakened state. This will bring us a slight uptick to our rain prospects beginning Friday. As this front drapes itself across the southern half of the state, expect more clouds than sun Friday and Saturday with scattered rain and a few storms. Skies will turn a bit sunnier by late Sunday with drier weather building over the state. Return to index of stories...
