CBS4 Chief Meteorologist Craig Setzer has your Monday evening weather forecast.
- Now, CBS 4 weather with chief meteorologist Craig Setzer.
CRAIG SETZER: Weather-wise, thank goodness it was cooler today. Because if it had gotten hotter, it would be in the mid-90s. We were in the low 90s yesterday. Current temperatures are in the low 80s. That's our Keys camera behind me there, looking like it's going to be a beautiful sunset. And a beautiful moonrise. The moonrise is just after 7:30, so between 7:30 and 8:00, start looking after the east for the bright supermoon. Four on the stickiness scale, feels like 84. A northeast wind at 15.
Radar picking up a few thunderstorms in the Upper Keys right now. Activity has been sliding slowly to the south. Right along US 1 there, the Overseas Highway, through Islamorada, Tavernier, now starting to see some improvement. Headed on down towards Long Key, could even impact Duck Key, as well as Marathon and Boot Key Harbor.
In terms of temperatures for highs today, mid-80s. We were in the mid-90s yesterday. Normal high is 85. Current temperatures are in the low 80s, looking pretty good there. And the temperature change over the last 24 hours, we're running between seven and 10-- 11 degrees cooler than this time last night. And it doesn't feel cool, but at least not as hot as it was. Winds out of the northeast now, 15 to 18 miles an hour.
And the satellite loop through the day today, showing just a few clouds blowing by. We do have this weak cold front that has been sinking to the south. That's what's been responsible for triggering a few of those storms over the Upper Keys, and it's also responsible for bringing in some drier air. Here we are now. There we are tomorrow. Drier air covering the entire peninsula. Even humidities will be a bit lower tomorrow.
Tomorrow is looking like the best day of the week, because after that we start to warm up a little bit, especially by Thursday. And then by Friday, a little better chance for some thunderstorms, mainly north of us. And then over the weekend, the moisture gets squeezed over us. So also a pretty high chance of thunderstorms Saturday, possibly some lingering rain even into Sunday, before this next front pushes south. Is it going to come through? It's hard to say on this one. The last few fronts have been making it through, kind of taking us out of heating up.
Temperatures across the country. They are heating up in the middle of the country, 80s all the way up through the middle of the nation. But outside of that, temperatures in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Here's our forecast for tonight. Supermoon-y out there with the supermoon out there. Upper 60s inland and low 70s everywhere else. For tomorrow, look for a good deal of sunshine. Breezy, warm, and dry. High temperature near 84 degrees.
On the water, winds out of the east-northeast at 15 to 20. Seas running three to five feet, choppy on the bays. And taking us through the rest of the week and the weekend, a couple of nice days ahead, and then we warm back up just in time for the weekend, when we'll see a better chance for thunderstorms. Back to you.
