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.

"A stretch of dry weather"

The work week got off to a warm and breezy start, but sunshine prevailed along with comfortable humidity values. As we progress through the week, temperatures will get a bit of a boost and we'll introduce the chance for a few spotty showers by the holiday weekend.

It will be a mild, but pleasant start to the day with temperatures in the middle 60s. Sunny skies will get the day going and that will help thermometer readings to climb through the mid day hours. Just a few more fair weather clouds will be moving in from the east, otherwise plan on a mostly sunny day. Expect daytime highs to climb near 90° area wide with readings near the coast staying slightly cooler. Winds will remain breezy through the day with gusts near 20 to 25 mph.

As we head into the evening hours, mainly clear skies will persist and temperatures will settle into the upper 70s just after sunset. Quiet weather will return once again tonight with temperatures slowly falling into the middle 60s by morning.

As high pressure remains the dominant feature in our forecast, not much will change as we head into Wednesday and beyond. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies tomorrow afternoon with a breeze out of the east. Daytime highs will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s, with lows in the middle to upper 60s. Winds will become more southerly by mid week and as a result, our humidity values will begin to creep back up. A mainly dry pattern will hold through the end of the work week with afternoon highs reaching the lower 90s.

Overall, the upcoming holiday weekend looks to be in good shape. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds and a couple of spotty showers by Sunday afternoon. Return to index of stories...

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.

"A stretch of dry weather"

The work week got off to a warm and breezy start, but sunshine prevailed along with comfortable humidity values. As we progress through the week, temperatures will get a bit of a boost and we'll introduce the chance for a few spotty showers by the holiday weekend.

It will be a mild, but pleasant start to the day with temperatures in the middle 60s. Sunny skies will get the day going and that will help thermometer readings to climb through the mid day hours. Just a few more fair weather clouds will be moving in from the east, otherwise plan on a mostly sunny day. Expect daytime highs to climb near 90° area wide with readings near the coast staying slightly cooler. Winds will remain breezy through the day with gusts near 20 to 25 mph.

As we head into the evening hours, mainly clear skies will persist and temperatures will settle into the upper 70s just after sunset. Quiet weather will return once again tonight with temperatures slowly falling into the middle 60s by morning.

As high pressure remains the dominant feature in our forecast, not much will change as we head into Wednesday and beyond. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies tomorrow afternoon with a breeze out of the east. Daytime highs will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s, with lows in the middle to upper 60s. Winds will become more southerly by mid week and as a result, our humidity values will begin to creep back up. A mainly dry pattern will hold through the end of the work week with afternoon highs reaching the lower 90s.

Overall, the upcoming holiday weekend looks to be in good shape. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds and a couple of spotty showers by Sunday afternoon. Return to index of stories...
