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.

CHANGES AHEAD TO CLOSE THE WORK WEEK

It was fairly dry and fairly pleasant day across Southwest Florida Thursday, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Expect quiet conditions this evening as temps fall into the 70s. Overnight tonight will feature partly cloudy skies and lows in the low 70s.

Changes begin to arrive as we move into Friday. More moisture will work into the area, resulting in a touch more cloud cover. It will bring a slightly better chance for PM showers and storms across the region. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The tropical moisture rolls back into Southwest Florida for the weekend, bringing an even better chance of showers and storms.

We'll see dry conditions in the morning with scattered showers and storms developing both Saturday and Sunday. Highs for the weekend will be in the low 90s.

Once the wet weather pattern arrives, it will stay for most of next week. Expect morning sun and PM showers and storms Monday thru Wednesday, with highs holding in the low 90s.

There is some uncertainty as to how the back end of next week will play out. Right now, expect a chance of scattered PM storms both Thursday and Friday.

TROPICAL UPDATE

The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on a disturbance in the Bay of Campeche. This system is producing flooding rains along eastern Mexico and has winds approaching 35 mph. The hurricane center gives this system a 30% chance of developing over the next 48 hours.

The system could have an indirect effect of our weather late next week, but that is highly uncertain.

Elsewhere, no major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
