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 dry stretch of weather"

After a soggy start to the weekend, we ended it on a sunnier note. With no big weather systems headed our way, expect tranquil conditions over the next several days with a big warm up through the week.

Wall to wall sunshine will prevail through the late afternoon hours as temperatures peak in the upper 80s. Lower 90s will be felt deeper inland in a few spots, while slightly cooler readings will be along the coast as the seabreeze develops.

Through the evening, temperatures will start to settle back into the lower 80s. Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable temperatures as they dip into the lower to middle 60s area wide.

As high pressure continues to build in across the peninsula, expect mostly sunny skies through Tuesday. Daytime highs will be quite toasty as they top out in the lower 90s. As winds turn more southeasterly and humidity levels start to come up a bit, morning lows will gradually warm into the middle to upper 60s, while daytime temperatures return to the lower 90s each afternoon. The forecast looks dry for much of next week with partly sunny conditions. Models are hinting at a few showers by next weekend, but rain prospects at this time are only around 20-30%.
