HOT AND HUMID WITH AFTERNOON SHOWERS

Our Tuesday morning starts warm and muggy with just a few clouds. Through the day, we'll see cloud cover increasing ahead of a cold front. That front will also bring a chance for showers and even a couple of thunderstorms. We could get a couple of showers to pop up by midday with more of them during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures today will still be able to warm into the mid 80s. For tonight, we'll be just a bit cooler with lows in the low to mid 60s, which is actually right around the average for this time of year.

The cold front that brings the chance for rain today will get "stuck" near Southwest Florida for the rest of the week. Tomorrow we'll likely see mostly cloudy skies. Then for Thursday and Friday, a few scattered showers are expected each day due to the proximity of the old cold front from today.

As we look ahead to the Easter weekend, the weather does look drier. Sunshine should be increasing with highs in the mid 80s for any weekend activities you have planned. If you are going to a sunrise Easter service, temperatures will be in the mid and upper 60s. Return to index of stories...

For tonight, we'll be just a bit cooler with lows in the low to mid 60s, which is actually right around the average for this time of year.

The cold front that brings the chance for rain today will get "stuck" near Southwest Florida for the rest of the week. Tomorrow we'll likely see mostly cloudy skies. Then for Thursday and Friday, a few scattered showers are expected each day due to the proximity of the old cold front from today.

As we look ahead to the Easter weekend, the weather does look drier. Sunshine should be increasing with highs in the mid 80s for any weekend activities you have planned. If you are going to a sunrise Easter service, temperatures will be in the mid and upper 60s. Return to index of stories...
