MOSTLY SUNNY WITH MORE HEAT

It will be another mostly sunny day in Southwest Florida, but there are a few subtle changes occurring. Afternoon highs will reach into the lower 90s.

Then the afternoon sea breeze will arrive, keeping beaches slightly cooler that inland areas.

Tomorrow, the cloud cover and the humidity will both increase a bit and highs will still be in the lower 90s.

Mother's Day is this weekend and the weather still looks pretty good. It will be hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s. There will also be more clouds ins our skies. There is a slight chance for an inland shower both days, but the majority of the area will stay dry.

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.

MOSTLY SUNNY WITH MORE HEAT

It will be another mostly sunny day in Southwest Florida, but there are a few subtle changes occurring. Afternoon highs will reach into the lower 90s. The dew point is creeping up, so that means you'll likely notice it being a little bit more humid today. Winds will be from the southeast with gusts near 20 mph. Then the afternoon sea breeze will arrive, keeping beaches slightly cooler that inland areas.

Tomorrow, the cloud cover and the humidity will both increase a bit and highs will still be in the lower 90s.

Mother's Day is this weekend and the weather still looks pretty good. It will be hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s. There will also be more clouds ins our skies. There is a slight chance for an inland shower both days, but the majority of the area will stay dry.

We'll be hot and humid going into next week with the possibility of a stray shower on Monday. By Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll bring in a better chances for showers and storms. Return to index of stories...
