FORECAST OPEN-CLIP


FORECAST OPEN

NEW! Return to index of stories...


FORECAST-WXWALL


It's been a classic May afternoon across Southwest Florida, featuring plenty of sunshine, heat, and humidity.

We've also seen more patchy clouds bubbling up through the heat of the day, but still, temperatures had no trouble soaring into the low 90s during the afternoon.

We'll keep the warm temperatures in the forecast as we go through the evening, and we'll even watch for a spotty shower or two along the sea breeze.

Our sky will stay partly to mostly cloudy overnight, and temperatures will only cool off into the low to mid 70s by Sunday morning.

Our Mother's Day forecast will look slightly different as some thin clouds work in from the northwest, filtering our sunshine at times. We'll still manage to work in partial sunshine through the morning and afternoon hours, which will warm our temperatures into the upper 80s and low 90s again.

Coastal communities should top out right around the mid to upper 80s where the sea breeze will keep daytime highs slightly lower.

Like today, we'll see the possibility for just a few isolated afternoon downpours firing along the sea breeze, but rain coverage will stay very spotty. Overall, our rain chance for Mother's Day will be around 20%.

Rain prospects will be a touch higher for the first half of next week as some extra tropical moisture grazes Southwest Florida, helping to produce some isolated showers and storms during the afternoon.

Our sky will stay partly sunny for most of the week, which will keep our temperatures rather toasty; highs will top out around 90, and overnight lows will drop to near 70 degrees.

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. Return to index of stories...
