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.

The weather is on repeat for the next several days. The summer-like pattern continues again this Thursday afternoon. Expect another hot and humid afternoon with highs in the low 90s but "feeling like" near triple digits.

During the afternoon, after mid-day primarily, pop up showers and storms will fill the sky in some places. Just like Wednesday, some storms will have potential for heavy downpours and deadly lightning.

Overnight into Friday morning will be very muggy. Lows bottom out in the low 70s, which is near normal for this time in July. Friday morning chances for rain will be isolated and in the coastal waters. However, some will try and advance towards inland areas. Any that do quickly fizzle out, therefore not anticipating a tricky Friday morning commute.

Weekend forecast looks pretty typical. Both Saturday & Sunday will be hot with highs in the low 90s. Best chance for rain will during the afternoon hours and along the I-75 corridor.

The tropics remain quiet and no storms are expected to develop for the next 5 to 7 days. Return to index of stories...

5:30 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.

The weather is on repeat for the next several days. The summer-like pattern continues again this Thursday afternoon. Expect another hot and humid afternoon with highs in the low 90s but "feeling like" near triple digits.

During the afternoon, after mid-day primarily, pop up showers and storms will fill the sky in some places. Just like Wednesday, some storms will have potential for heavy downpours and deadly lightning.

Overnight into Friday morning will be very muggy. Lows bottom out in the low 70s, which is near normal for this time in July. Friday morning chances for rain will be isolated and in the coastal waters. However, some will try and advance towards inland areas. Any that do quickly fizzle out, therefore not anticipating a tricky Friday morning commute.

Weekend forecast looks pretty typical. Both Saturday & Sunday will be hot with highs in the low 90s. Best chance for rain will during the afternoon hours and along the I-75 corridor.

The tropics remain quiet and no storms are expected to develop for the next 5 to 7 days. Return to index of stories...
