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 TODAY

Steering winds will be from the south-southwest again today, leading to a similar setup to what we had yesterday. There will be a few showers, even a couple of storms, along the coastline early this morning. More activity will develop as we go through the morning to midday time frame. As we go from midday toward afternoon, the rain will shift from the coast to the inland areas. Then into the evening some of the lingering shower and storm activity could come back toward the highway 41 corridor. Highs this afternoon will be held in the mid 80s to near 90 degrees with plenty of cloud cover along with the downpours.

For tomorrow, we'll see another day of scattered storms that could once again get that early start. Then for the later part of the week, there will be a few scattered afternoon storms each day. That will actually be a bit more like our typical rainy season pattern. Highs through the week will rebound into the low 90s, which is pretty seasonal for Southwest Florida.

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...

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 TODAY

Steering winds will be from the south-southwest again today, leading to a similar setup to what we had yesterday. There will be a few showers, even a couple of storms, along the coastline early this morning. More activity will develop as we go through the morning to midday time frame. As we go from midday toward afternoon, the rain will shift from the coast to the inland areas. Then into the evening some of the lingering shower and storm activity could come back toward the highway 41 corridor. Highs this afternoon will be held in the mid 80s to near 90 degrees with plenty of cloud cover along with the downpours.

For tomorrow, we'll see another day of scattered storms that could once again get that early start. Then for the later part of the week, there will be a few scattered afternoon storms each day. That will actually be a bit more like our typical rainy season pattern. Highs through the week will rebound into the low 90s, which is pretty seasonal for Southwest Florida.

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...
