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.

Hot and Humid Conditions Again Wednesday

With Tropical Storm Arthur spinning off the east coast, a westerly flow of wind has sparked a few isolated showers early Wednesday morning. Will keep those rain chances in the forecast for at least half the morning. If anything, we'll see some additional cloud cover.

It's going to be another hot and humid afternoon.

Many of us will top out in the low 90s with mid-90s further inland.

Overnight tonight, lows stay milder with mid-to-upper 70s in most places.

There is a slight chance of a few isolated showers popping up later this afternoon but that chances is pretty low, most should be dry during the afternoon Wednesday. Return to index of stories...
