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.

CLOUDY WITH SHOWERS THIS EVENING

Mostly cloudy conditions along with numerous showers have dominated the weather across the region on Monday compliments of a prevalent east wind across the Florida peninsula.

Clouds helped to keep temperatures in check today. Highs were only able to top out in the 80s, cooler than what's considered seasonal for early June.

As we progress through the evening hours, mostly cloudy conditions with occasional showers are possible. With abundant cloud cover, overnight low temperatures will likely remain in the low to mid 70s.

On Tuesday, it appears we'll see a drier day across Southwest Florida, but we will need to leave the chance for an isolated shower or a thunderstorm in the forecast. Otherwise clouds should range from partly to mostly cloudy through the mid-day hours. Temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 80s.

The remainder of the work week should feature high temperatures peaking in the upper 80s with sky conditions ranging from partly to mostly cloudy. Rain chances vary from day to day, but at least the risk of an isolated shower or storm will need to remain in the forecast on Thursday and Friday. Return to index of stories...
