Tuesday Forecast

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels says we should feel a bit more tolerable with regards to humidity today.

We have just a few quickly exiting light showers passing east early on this morning. Most will be gone well before sunrise in NWFL. But don't be surprised if you see a few wet spots on the roadways this morning.

Most of the rains yesterday fell west of Hwy331 and north of Hwy20, where you could have had anything from over an inch of rain to a few tenths. The rest of us in NWFL were lucky to have received a trace to maybe a tenth or two southeast of Hwy20.

Meanwhile, temperatures are a little more pleasant this morning as we're waking up closer to the 60s and feeling slightly less humid thanks to a westerly wind that turns slightly breezy this afternoon. Plenty of sunshine heads our way today with warm afternoon highs pushing back up into the mid to upper 80s inland to low 80s on the coast.

The return of rain is not too far off in the forecast. However, it won't be for today!

A frontal boundary is sliding across the south and Northern Gulf Coast states today. It'll link up with our last low pressure system still spinning to our north over TN and KY. The front will post up over NWFL overnight tonight and into tomorrow bringing more scattered and periodic waves of showers and rumbles of thunder.

So if you missed out on Monday's rain, hopefully we can fill up some of those empty gauges with Wednesday and now stretching into Thursday's rain along this stalled out front. It'll lift north as a warm front on Friday, and we'll get toasty up ahead for the weekend with a very summery pattern shaping up as a stray afternoon shower or two may pop up mainly away from the coast.

Bottom Line...
For today, after a few morning clouds skies turn sunny with highs in the low 80s on the coast to upper 80s inland. Winds will be slightly breezy from the west northwest to west southwest by the afternoon. Your 7 Day Forecast brings rain chances back into the fray tomorrow and Thursday before a summery pattern shapes up for the late week.
