WEATHER-WXWALL


TRACKING CHANGES AHEAD

It's another beautiful day throughout Southwest Florida Wednesday, with mostly sunny skies and comfortable highs in the low 80s. Clear skies will remain this evening, with temps falling in the low 70s. Overnight, we could see a little patchy fog develop, with lows in the low 60s.

More sun is in store for Thursday. Just a few clouds will develop in the afternoon hours, with slightly warmer highs in the mid 80s. A sea breeze will once again be likely during the afternoon, with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Some changes are on the way for Friday. A cool front will begin to sag into Florida, dragging more moisture with it. The result will be partly sunny skies and a chance of a few scattered showers in the afternoon hours. The best chance for rain will be in inland areas. Highs on Friday will cool into the low 80s.

The weekend is looking better across the area. Expect a blend of sun & clouds Saturday, with a few scattered showers possible. Highs on Saturday will climb into the mid 80s.

The front lifts away from us Sunday. This will bring more sunshine with highs in the mid 80s.

Next week is now looking drier and warmer. We'll see partly cloudy skies both Monday & Tuesday, with highs in the low 80s. A few showers will be possible both days, but most areas will likely stay dry.

Our best chance for rain looks to be Wednesday as the cool front finally enters Southwest Florida. Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 70s to low 80s. Return to index of stories...
