5:00 WEATHER LEAD-WX WALL


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.

PM DOWNPOURS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEK

Showers and storms have come to an end in Southwest Florida, and now our Monday morning starts with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. We'll get to see some sunshine as clouds continue to thin out early this morning. By midday, though, the clouds will already be starting to build back into the area. Temperatures will warm into the lower to middle 90s this afternoon. We set a record yesterday with a high of 97 degrees. Today's record is 99 degrees, set back in 1942. We aren't going to set a record today, but with an official high of 94 degrees expected this afternoon, it will still be hot and humid. A few showers and storms will start by mid-afternoon. Then, there will be plenty of scattered late afternoon and evening storms across the area. Activity will likely start deeper inland and come back toward the coastline toward the evening time frame. Highs will stay in the low to mid 90s and lows in the mid 70s through the week. Afternoon storms will stick around, too.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We will be closely monitoring a low pressure center off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida for continued signs of tropical organization. The National Hurricane Center is granting the feature a 60% chance of tropical formation in the next two days, with an 80% chance in the next five.

Though the disturbance is moving southward now, the more long term outlook has the feature organizing and then hooking toward the north into the work week. This is not a threat to Southwest Florida.

Otherwise, the remainder of the Atlantic, Gulf and Caribbean look fairly quiet at this time. Return to index of stories...

5:22 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Day Planner

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.

PM DOWNPOURS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEK

Showers and storms have come to an end in Southwest Florida, and now our Monday morning starts with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. We'll get to see some sunshine as clouds continue to thin out early this morning. By midday, though, the clouds will already be starting to build back into the area. Temperatures will warm into the lower to middle 90s this afternoon. We set a record yesterday with a high of 97 degrees. Today's record is 99 degrees, set back in 1942. We aren't going to set a record today, but with an official high of 94 degrees expected this afternoon, it will still be hot and humid. A few showers and storms will start by mid-afternoon. Then, there will be plenty of scattered late afternoon and evening storms across the area. Activity will likely start deeper inland and come back toward the coastline toward the evening time frame. Highs will stay in the low to mid 90s and lows in the mid 70s through the week. Afternoon storms will stick around, too.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We will be closely monitoring a low pressure center off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida for continued signs of tropical organization. The National Hurricane Center is granting the feature a 60% chance of tropical formation in the next two days, with an 80% chance in the next five.

Though the disturbance is moving southward now, the more long term outlook has the feature organizing and then hooking toward the north into the work week. This is not a threat to Southwest Florida.

Otherwise, the remainder of the Atlantic, Gulf and Caribbean look fairly quiet at this time. Return to index of stories...

5:52 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


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.

PM DOWNPOURS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEK

Showers and storms have come to an end in Southwest Florida, and now our Monday morning starts with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. We'll get to see some sunshine as clouds continue to thin out early this morning. By midday, though, the clouds will already be starting to build back into the area. Temperatures will warm into the lower to middle 90s this afternoon. We set a record yesterday with a high of 97 degrees. Today's record is 99 degrees, set back in 1942. We aren't going to set a record today, but with an official high of 94 degrees expected this afternoon, it will still be hot and humid. A few showers and storms will start by mid-afternoon. Then, there will be plenty of scattered late afternoon and evening storms across the area. Activity will likely start deeper inland and come back toward the coastline toward the evening time frame. Highs will stay in the low to mid 90s and lows in the mid 70s through the week. Afternoon storms will stick around, too.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We will be closely monitoring a low pressure center off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida for continued signs of tropical organization. The National Hurricane Center is granting the feature a 60% chance of tropical formation in the next two days, with an 80% chance in the next five.

Though the disturbance is moving southward now, the more long term outlook has the feature organizing and then hooking toward the north into the work week. This is not a threat to Southwest Florida.

Otherwise, the remainder of the Atlantic, Gulf and Caribbean look fairly quiet at this time. Return to index of stories...
