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.

Conditions this afternoon will be partly cloudy and mainly dry, although a stray shower or two can't be ruled out. Temperatures will top out at around 80 degrees again today.

It will be another mild night with a few areas of fog and increasing cloud cover ahead of a cold front. By the afternoon and evening we will see a few showers and higher winds as the front passes.

Temperatures will begin to fall through the day on Saturday and bottom out in the 40s early Sunday morning. The weekend will be breezy and chilly with lots of sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s for most of this timeframe.

We'll begin next week with lows in the 40s and highs only in the 60s but warm slightly by Tuesday afternoon. Another front is likely early next week which will hold our temperatures below average for the foreseeable future. Return to index of stories...
