FIRST WEATHER-ANIBOX STC


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.

Later in the afternoon, more storms will form and build deeper inland, and this is where the highest rain chances will be during the afternoon and evening hours.

We still could see a few storms cells drift back toward the coast by the evening and into tonight, so we'll all be fair game for rain for the balance of this Tuesday.

Coastal showers will be possible late tonight into the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday, but the highest rain chances will continue to shift deeper inland by Wednesday afternoon.

We're in store for a pretty routine summer pattern from Thursday into the upcoming weekend, featuring morning sunshine and scattered storms during the afternoon and evening.

Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 90s during the day and settling into the mid 70s at night.

In the tropics, there are no areas of concern at this time and development in not likely within the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
