WEATHER FORECAST-WXWALL


FULL WX

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.

The warmth stays bottled up over Southwest Florida today as temperatures soar into the upper 80s across much of the region.

We'll keep ample sunshine in the forecast for our Sunday, but some patchy fair-weather clouds will also mix in with the sun through the afternoon.

Even a few spotty showers could pop up during the heat of the day and through the evening, but with rain chances only around 20%, the majority of us will end up staying dry.

Temperatures will get most of our attention today as daytime highs stay roughly five degrees above average; peak temps will range from 85-89 degrees with the coolest temps expected close to the coast.

The warm weather rolls along into Monday with highs back in the upper 80s along with a partly cloudy sky.

We'll bring a rain chance to the forecast Tuesday as a weak cool front gets stretched out over Central and South Florida, There should be enough moisture around to produce some scattered showers Tuesday afternoon, and some of this moisture will linger into Wednesday as well, making for a fairly cloudy day along with a few showers.

Despite having a cool front within close proximity, our temperatures will continue to stay rather warm with highs still in the 80s.

By the end of the week, more sunshine will break through, but we could be dodging a few downpours during the afternoon and evening time frame
