FIRST WEATHER-WX WALL


CLOUDS AND SHOWERS ON THE WAY

A few days of changing weather is on the radar before we return to very nice weather this coming weekend.

Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight and First Alert Doppler Radar is tracking showers near Tampa moving in this direction. If the showers hold together we should see some areas of rain break out tonight. Temperatures will drop into the 60's this evening and skies will be mostly cloudy. Winds will die off a bit; however our breeze will continue at 10 - 15 mph through tomorrow.

The forecast for Thursday calls for more cloudy and breezy weather. The high temperature tomorrow will be in the mid 70's. Scattered showers will pop up across the area on Thursday with a chance for rain in the morning, afternoon and early evening. It does not appear that a good soaking if coming, but a little rain will be welcome.

By Friday the skies will start to clear out and on Saturday and Sunday the forecast looks mostly sunny with highs back in the 80's. Return to index of stories...
