FIRST WEATHER-WX CTR


Despite the cloud cover yesterday, temperatures managed to warm into the upper 70s to lower 80s. We'll keep a very slight rain chance in the forecast heading into the weekend, with sunnier and drier conditions by Sunday.

Our morning will get off to a mild start with temperatures in the lower 60s. Areas of patchy fog will also be possible, especially across Collier county and our inland communities. Once the low clouds and fog mix out, partly sunny skies will return with cloudy periods from time to time with daytime highs in the lower 80s. The frontal system that's been meandering across Southwest Florida over the last few days, will bring just a stray shower across the peninsula through the evening hours.

Tonight, expect patchy cloud cover with a passing shower or two. Temperatures will eventually settle into the upper 50s north of the river, with lower 60s mainly across our southern zones.

More sunshine will be back in the forecast for the second half of the weekend as our atmosphere begins to dry out. Sunday's highs will top off in the upper 70s under a mix of sun and clouds. Slightly cooler and less humid air will filter into the area allowing temperatures to dip into the upper 50s by Monday morning. Mostly sunny skies are expected for the start of the work week with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s. A slight warming trend will continue through Wednesday, before another system works its way down the state with scattered showers. Return to index of stories...

MAIN WEATHER


Despite the cloud cover yesterday, temperatures managed to warm into the upper 70s to lower 80s. We'll keep a very slight rain chance in the forecast heading into the weekend, with sunnier and drier conditions by Sunday.

Our morning will get off to a mild start with temperatures in the lower 60s. Areas of patchy fog will also be possible, especially across Collier county and our inland communities. Once the low clouds and fog mix out, partly sunny skies will return with cloudy periods from time to time with daytime highs in the lower 80s. The frontal system that's been meandering across Southwest Florida over the last few days, will bring just a stray shower across the peninsula through the evening hours.

Tonight, expect patchy cloud cover with a passing shower or two. Temperatures will eventually settle into the upper 50s north of the river, with lower 60s mainly across our southern zones.

More sunshine will be back in the forecast for the second half of the weekend as our atmosphere begins to dry out. Sunday's highs will top off in the upper 70s under a mix of sun and clouds. Slightly cooler and less humid air will filter into the area allowing temperatures to dip into the upper 50s by Monday morning. Mostly sunny skies are expected for the start of the work week with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s. A slight warming trend will continue through Wednesday, before another system works its way down the state with scattered showers. Return to index of stories...
