FIRST WEATHER-WXCTR


Today's Weather Story

Good morning, Southwest Florida!

Better bundle up! It's a chilly, windy and cloudy start to the morning with temperatures starting out in the 40s.

Factor in a strong northerly windy, and it feels as cold as the 30s for parts of Southwest Florida.

The wind will play a major part in our weather today as well as the next couple of days. Our wind will be northerly today from 15-20 mph with gusts up to 25 mph, which will make the air feel several degrees below the actual temperature all day.

Aside from the wind chill aspect of our weather, don't expect much of a warm up, even later this afternoon.

Like Monday, we'll have lots of clouds blanketing our sky today, which will slow down the warming process dramatically.

Also, the strong northerly breeze will keep the chilly air flowing into Southwest Florida.

Tonight, expect the cloudy, chilly and breezy weather to continue, but temperatures won't get quite as cold as this morning--not yet, at least.

Before another blast of cold air arrives, we'll have to contend with some areas of rain Wednesday morning. This rain will generally be light to moderate, only resulting in a tenth of an inch or so of rain accumulation.

After the rain moves out by midday, we should manage to clear out much of the cloud cover and see some sunshine, but just as the sun peaks out, another blast of cold air arrives Wednesday afternoon and evening.

The coldest of the weather invades Southwest Florida Thursday-Saturday with morning lows as cold as the mid to upper 30s for those of us away from the coast and highs barely breaking out of the 50s Thursday and Friday afternoon.

By late this weekend, temperatures finally rebound into the 70s.

Get ready. It's going to be a cold week for Southwest Florida!

Today's Weather Story

Good morning, Southwest Florida!

Better bundle up! It's a chilly, windy and cloudy start to the morning with temperatures starting out in the 40s.

Factor in a strong northerly windy, and it feels as cold as the 30s for parts of Southwest Florida.

The wind will play a major part in our weather today as well as the next couple of days. Our wind will be northerly today from 15-20 mph with gusts up to 25 mph, which will make the air feel several degrees below the actual temperature all day.

Aside from the wind chill aspect of our weather, don't expect much of a warm up, even later this afternoon.

Like Monday, we'll have lots of clouds blanketing our sky today, which will slow down the warming process dramatically.

Also, the strong northerly breeze will keep the chilly air flowing into Southwest Florida.

Tonight, expect the cloudy, chilly and breezy weather to continue, but temperatures won't get quite as cold as this morning--not yet, at least.

Before another blast of cold air arrives, we'll have to contend with some areas of rain Wednesday morning. This rain will generally be light to moderate, only resulting in a tenth of an inch or so of rain accumulation.

After the rain moves out by midday, we should manage to clear out much of the cloud cover and see some sunshine, but just as the sun peaks out, another blast of cold air arrives Wednesday afternoon and evening.

The coldest of the weather invades Southwest Florida Thursday-Saturday with morning lows as cold as the mid to upper 30s for those of us away from the coast and highs barely breaking out of the 50s Thursday and Friday afternoon.

By late this weekend, temperatures finally rebound into the 70s.

Get ready. It's going to be a cold week for Southwest Florida!
