Forecast: Slight increase in humidity, still mainly dry
*NBC2’S Fire Alert has been extended through Wednesday, May 19th. – Humidity will be slightly higher today, but the winds will once again be breezy so the threat will again likely be high or very high.
We have a very slight change to our weather today, and that is an increase in humidity. It is a very subtle uptick, and unfortunately not enough to bring us significant chances for rain. A few isolated showers are still possible but don’t count on getting rain.
In fact, conditions remain so dry, that once again we have issued another Fire Alert due to that dry weather, as well as breezy east-northeast winds. Breezy weather will also have an impact on boaters, as a small craft advisory is in place due to Gulf seas up to 4 feet, and choppy conditions for the inland and bay waterways.
For those of us on land, expect partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies, and highs up to near 90.
The rest of the week is very similar; mainly dry weather, temperatures into the upper 80s and low 90s, with low humidity. This weekend is going to be gorgeous with mornings starting in the 60s before warming into the low 90s, but we expect the fire danger to be high once again.
Forecast solutions finally show a breakdown in the persistent ridge of high pressure by the end of the month, which will finally bring enough moisture to Southwest Florida to increase our rain chances, finally ushering in rainy season.
This of course could still change, so count on NBC2 to keep you updated!
