FIRST WEATHER-WXCTR


Today's Weather Story

Another big blast of cold air arrives in Southwest Florida today, but before the chilly air rushes in, we'll see the potential for a few showers today.

The highest rain chance will come during the first half of the day, so grab the umbrella on the way out the door this morning.

Today's rain won't be too heavy or widespread, and rain amounts will generally stay below a quarter inch.

Temperatures won't start of as low as yesterday morning, but it's still going to be quite chilly especially once you factor in the brisk northerly wind that will gust up to 20-25 mph at times today.

We'll start off in the low to mid 50s this morning, and with some breaks in the clouds this afternoon, we should manage to warm into the low to mid 60s.

Temperatures will turn sharply cold tonight, and the wind will make it feel several degrees colder.

Morning lows Thursday will tumble into the low 40s in town and into the mid to upper 30s across our inland communities like Hendry and Glades County.

Wind chill values, however, will get down into the 30s and possibly as low as the upper 20s deep inland.

The good news is Thursday and Friday will feature a lot more sunshine, but temperatures will struggle to reach the low 60s thanks to a cold northerly wind.

Friday and Saturday morning will be the coldest of the week, and temperatures will be close to freezing for locations farther north like Arcadia and deeper inland over portions of Glades and Hendry County.

A freeze watch may be issued for our inland counties for Friday and Saturday morning, so precautions may need to be taken to protect plants and vegetation here.

The cold snap ends late this weekend into early next week as temperatures rebound into the 70s, but long-range forecast models hint at another cool down coming by the middle of next week.

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. Return to index of stories...

The highest rain chance will come during the first half of the day, so grab the umbrella on the way out the door this morning.

Today's rain won't be too heavy or widespread, and rain amounts will generally stay below a quarter inch.

Temperatures won't start of as low as yesterday morning, but it's still going to be quite chilly especially once you factor in the brisk northerly wind that will gust up to 20-25 mph at times today.

We'll start off in the low to mid 50s this morning, and with some breaks in the clouds this afternoon, we should manage to warm into the low to mid 60s.

Temperatures will turn sharply cold tonight, and the wind will make it feel several degrees colder.

Morning lows Thursday will tumble into the low 40s in town and into the mid to upper 30s across our inland communities like Hendry and Glades County.

Wind chill values, however, will get down into the 30s and possibly as low as the upper 20s deep inland.

The good news is Thursday and Friday will feature a lot more sunshine, but temperatures will struggle to reach the low 60s thanks to a cold northerly wind.

Friday and Saturday morning will be the coldest of the week, and temperatures will be close to freezing for locations farther north like Arcadia and deeper inland over portions of Glades and Hendry County.

A freeze watch may be issued for our inland counties for Friday and Saturday morning, so precautions may need to be taken to protect plants and vegetation here.

The cold snap ends late this weekend into early next week as temperatures rebound into the 70s, but long-range forecast models hint at another cool down coming by the middle of next week.
