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.

SCATTERED STORMS TODAY

Our Thursday morning starts with partly cloudy skies. There is plenty of warm, humid air in place across Southwest Florida. That warm humid air will lead to clouds building by mid-day. Winds from the ESE at 5-10 will turn more southerly then onshore this afternoon. We'll have a few isolated storms coming across the state on that easterly flow. Then, that afternoon sea breeze will be just what we need to really get scattered storms going. Expect more storms today than yesterday with heavy rain, lots of lightning and gusty winds.

As far as temperatures go, we'll top out near 90 degrees today and each of the next few days. Lows will stay in the lower 70s each morning.

Scattered showers and storms stay in the forecast tomorrow and could once again get going by around the mid-day time frame. Scattered PM storms stay in the forecast for Saturday. For Sunday and into next week, we'll keep isolated storms in the forecast each afternoon. Return to index of stories...
