TRACKING WARM DAYS

Our warm weather will continue through Wednesday before a chance for rain showers comes back to southwest Florida. In the meantime. relatively nice weather will continue. The forecast tonight calls for partly cloudy skies and mild 60's in the morning. Humidity will remain high tonight and after we start cooling this evening we will also be tracking fog. Some areas of fog could reduce visibility for a few hours during the morning commute tomorrow. Favored places for the heaviest fog will be inland. Tomorrow will be partly cloudy and warm with a high in the lower 80's. Rain chances stay less than 10% again on Tuesday.

The next cold front destined to move through Florida will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Skies will cloud up by the end of the day on Wednesday and a few showers could break out in the evening. On Thursday we expect cloudy weather with on/off showers. Temperatures will cool to the 70's during the day on Thursday.

The long-range forecast looks great for the upcoming weekend as sun returns and highs hit the 80's once again. Return to index of stories...
