530AM~STORMWARN FORECAST-WX CTR TO WX WALL


After a chilly start to our Friday morning, temperatures stay quite comfortable through the day with afternoon highs around 70 degrees along with wall to wall sunshine.

Our humidity levels will stay low, and we'll have a nice northeasterly breeze at 5-10 mph.

Rain will stay out of our forecast today and through the weekend, so the weather will work out beautifully for any outdoor plans.

For this evening and tonight, temperatures will be a little on the cool side but not quite as chilly as last night. After sunset, temps will fall into the mid to low 60s for most of the evening and then into the mid to upper 50s after midnight.

We'll start off the weekend with lows between 50-55 on Saturday morning with the cooler spots deep inland. Saturday is shaping up to be another beautiful day with a mostly sunny sky and daytime highs about five degrees warmer at 75.

Winds will also ramp up a bit Saturday with stiff breeze out of the northwest from 10-20 mph.

A reinforcing shot of cool air will bring our morning lows into the upper 40s early Sunday, but we'll warm up nicely by the afternoon with tons of sun and temps in the mid 70s.

Temperatures start to rebound as we go through the upcoming week. We're back in the 80s by Monday afternoon, and that's where we'll stay for the remainder of the week. In fact, for the second half of the week, highs should manage to climb into the mid 80s with morning lows only dropping into the mid 60s.

By Thursday and Friday of next week, there should be enough moisture to produce some isolated downpours, but most of these will form away from the beaches and over the interior part of the peninsula. Until then, our rain chances stay incredibly low, so we'll enjoy a dry stretch of weather for the next several days. Return to index of stories...

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS TH

E FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

After a chilly start to our Friday morning, temperatures stay quite comfortable through the day with afternoon highs around 70 degrees along with wall to wall sunshine.

Our humidity levels will stay low, and we'll have a nice northeasterly breeze at 5-10 mph.

Rain will stay out of our forecast today and through the weekend, so the weather will work out beautifully for any outdoor plans.

For this evening and tonight, temperatures will be a little on the cool side but not quite as chilly as last night. After sunset, temps will fall into the mid to low 60s for most of the evening and then into the mid to upper 50s after midnight.

We'll start off the weekend with lows between 50-55 on Saturday morning with the cooler spots deep inland. Saturday is shaping up to be another beautiful day with a mostly sunny sky and daytime highs about five degrees warmer at 75.

Winds will also ramp up a bit Saturday with stiff breeze out of the northwest from 10-20 mph.

A reinforcing shot of cool air will bring our morning lows into the upper 40s early Sunday, but we'll warm up nicely by the afternoon with tons of sun and temps in the mid 70s.

Temperatures start to rebound as we go through the upcoming week. We're back in the 80s by Monday afternoon, and that's where we'll stay for the remainder of the week. In fact, for the second half of the week, highs should manage to climb into the mid 80s with morning lows only dropping into the mid 60s.

By Thursday and Friday of next week, there should be enough moisture to produce some isolated downpours, but most of these will form away from the beaches and over the interior part of the peninsula. Until then, our rain chances stay incredibly low, so we'll enjoy a dry stretch of weather for the next several days. Return to index of stories...

FINAL WEATHER


After a chilly start to our Friday morning, temperatures stay quite comfortable through the day with afternoon highs around 70 degrees along with wall to wall sunshine.

Our humidity levels will stay low, and we'll have a nice northeasterly breeze at 5-10 mph.

Rain will stay out of our forecast today and through the weekend, so the weather will work out beautifully for any outdoor plans.

For this evening and tonight, temperatures will be a little on the cool side but not quite as chilly as last night. After sunset, temps will fall into the mid to low 60s for most of the evening and then into the mid to upper 50s after midnight.

We'll start off the weekend with lows between 50-55 on Saturday morning with the cooler spots deep inland. Saturday is shaping up to be another beautiful day with a mostly sunny sky and daytime highs about five degrees warmer at 75.

Winds will also ramp up a bit Saturday with stiff breeze out of the northwest from 10-20 mph.

A reinforcing shot of cool air will bring our morning lows into the upper 40s early Sunday, but we'll warm up nicely by the afternoon with tons of sun and temps in the mid 70s.

Temperatures start to rebound as we go through the upcoming week. We're back in the 80s by Monday afternoon, and that's where we'll stay for the remainder of the week. In fact, for the second half of the week, highs should manage to climb into the mid 80s with morning lows only dropping into the mid 60s.

By Thursday and Friday of next week, there should be enough moisture to produce some isolated downpours, but most of these will form away from the beaches and over the interior part of the peninsula. Until then, our rain chances stay incredibly low, so we'll enjoy a dry stretch of weather for the next several days. Return to index of stories...
