WEATHER-WXWALL


SUNSHINE RETURNS TOMORROW

Quiet weather will be back again on Wednesday. For the rest of the evening our skies stay clear and our temperatures drop back to the mid and upper 50's. No rain is on the radar and non anticipated tonight.

Mostly sunny weather is on the way again tomorrow with daytime highs in the lower 80's and slightly cooler weather right at the beaches during the day. No rain forecast again tomorrow. By Thursday and Friday our humidity will start to creep back up and a few fair-weather clouds will develop in the afternoon.

In the long-range outlook we will be tracking an approaching cold front over the weekend. The front is forecast to move over the Florida peninsula and hang out for a few days. That would argue for a few showers to post in the forecast late Saturday, Sunday and Monday. At this point it still does not look like a very wet pattern is setting up for the weekend ahead. but plan on a few showers anyway. Return to index of stories...
