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.

SCATTERED DOWNPOURS START AROUND MIDDAY

Scattered storms are in the forecast today. We start the morning mainly clear and dry, but it won't take long to get the rain going today. Winds from the south will quickly turn southwesterly. That turn of the winds will happen early in the day, allowing a few downpours to pop up starting in the later morning to midday time frame. A few of these will be near our urban corridor, but once they pop up, they are headed toward the inland areas. Most of the activity will remain inland, but there will be a few downpours that come back toward the coastline in the evening as the sea breeze collapses. With plenty of moisture in place, there is the possibility of isolated rain totals reaching 2-3"; similar to what happened yesterday in eastern Lee County. Afternoon highs will again reach into the lower 90s.

We'll continue with scattered afternoon storms in the forecast through the week, most of which will be in the inland areas. Afternoon highs will stay in the near 90 degrees and lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

There are no areas of concern in the tropics at this time. 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.

SCATTERED DOWNPOURS START AROUND MIDDAY

Scattered storms are in the forecast today. We start the morning mainly clear and dry, but it won't take long to get the rain going today. Winds from the south will quickly turn southwesterly. That turn of the winds will happen early in the day, allowing a few downpours to pop up starting in the later morning to midday time frame. A few of these will be near our urban corridor, but once they pop up, they are headed toward the inland areas. Most of the activity will remain inland, but there will be a few downpours that come back toward the coastline in the evening as the sea breeze collapses. With plenty of moisture in place, there is the possibility of isolated rain totals reaching 2-3"; similar to what happened yesterday in eastern Lee County. Afternoon highs will again reach into the lower 90s.

We'll continue with scattered afternoon storms in the forecast through the week, most of which will be in the inland areas. Afternoon highs will stay in the near 90 degrees and lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

There are no areas of concern in the tropics at this time. Return to index of stories...
