WEATHER-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

After quite the toasty Saturday, we're on track to see a warm and mild evening across Southwest Florida.

Our sky will stay quiet and mostly clear with just a few clouds passing through during the overnight period.

We'll start off our Sunday morning with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s, but we'll be in store for a rapid warm-up through the morning and into the afternoon. Temperatures should have no trouble reaching the mid to upper 80s during the heat of the day with some of us even closing in on 90 degrees.

Another subtle change to the weather will be an uptick in humidity as our wind becomes more southeasterly over the next couple days.

There should be just enough moisture for a couple stray, late-day showers to form Sunday, but the overall coverage will stay pretty spotty.

As we head in the the upcoming week, we'll be tracking a weakening cool front approaching Southwest Florida by Tuesday and Wednesday. This front will most likely get stretched out and ultimately stall over South Florida, leaving us with higher rain chances and more cloud cover by the mid week.

Temperatures will continue to stay rather warm next week with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Return to index of stories...
