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.

Happy Monday - will start off dry and sunny through the first of the day. Later this afternoon showers and storms will start blossoming across the urban corridor. Like any other day some of the isoalted storms will float towards the coastline and impact the evening commute.

Highs today will be cooler than weekend but still hot. Area wide, low 90s will be expected and feeling like the upper 90s.

Overnight, we start to dry out and clouds thin out. Mid to low 70s will be the common trend overnight and for the next few days.

Tuesday is on repeat. Highs in the low 90s with showers and storms in the afternoon/early evening.

Tropical Tracker

The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on a broad area of low pressure producing diorgonized storms about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Island. This low will continue to push off towards the west-northwest in coming days. Odds of devlopment right now are less than 10% in the next 48 hours.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.

WE ARE ALSO GETTING NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THAT WILDFIRE IN WASHINGTON STATE.

6:30 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.

Happy Monday - will start off dry and sunny through the first of the day. Later this afternoon showers and storms will start blossoming across the urban corridor. Like any other day some of the isoalted storms will float towards the coastline and impact the evening commute.

Highs today will be cooler than weekend but still hot. Area wide, low 90s will be expected and feeling like the upper 90s.

Overnight, we start to dry out and clouds thin out. Mid to low 70s will be the common trend overnight and for the next few days.

Tuesday is on repeat. Highs in the low 90s with showers and storms in the afternoon/early evening.

Tropical Tracker

The National Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on a broad area of low pressure producing diorgonized storms about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Island. This low will continue to push off towards the west-northwest in coming days. Odds of devlopment right now are less than 10% in the next 48 hours.

Other than that, things are quiet elsewhere. Return to index of stories...
