FIRST ALERT 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.

Hot and humid on Wednesday

Very warm and humid conditions are expected overnight tonight with lows only retreating to the mid and upper 70s along the shoreline. Inland areas of the peninsula should see temps back in the low to mid 70s.

Dry conditions are expected along the coastline tonight, but through the evening, there will remain the chance for some showers and storms for the inland and east coast regions of the state.

Wednesday looks hot. Temperatures are expected to reach 94 at Fort Myers, 91 at Naples and 95 at Immokalee. With plenty of humidity in place it looks to be a sweltering afternoon. Though forecast data suggests communities along the immediate coastline will stay dry, we'll need to leave in the opportunity for a few showers or thunderstorms developing by late afternoon for areas east of Interstate 75.

A more typical rainy season pattern featuring shower and storm potential along the US 41 corridor returns late in the work week. Temperatures on Thursday look to peak near 93, with 92 the forecast high on Friday. Return to index of stories...
