- Now, CBS4 weather with Chief Meteorologist Craig Setzer.

CRAIG SETZER: Another nice day today. Plenty of sunshine. Comfortable temperatures. Not too bad. And good time to be on a sailboat this afternoon. Here's our Keys Cam showing just a mix of sun and clouds. 82 in Miami. 81, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood. 81 in Key West. Stickiness scale is at 3, fairly comfy. If you're new to South Florida, this is bonus weather here. We usually don't have it this nice this late in May, where it is below normal high temperatures as well as below normal humidity.

Normal high of 88. We are in the mid 80s once again. But day by day, we've been coming up a little bit higher. And the moisture-- the humidity, rather-- has been coming up a little bit more as well. Current temperatures in the low 80s. Going to be another pleasant evening. You'll be able to catch the bright moon just past full in about an hour when it comes up over the horizon. Humidity range is in the 50% to 60% range right now. And there's the breeze, east to southeast, anywhere from 9 to 14 miles an hour.

Satellite loop through the day today, showing just a few clouds passing by. None of these clouds have been producing any precipitation. The air just above the surface is fairly dry. Just above the cloud level, it's a little more moist down here near the surface.

But the big picture, showing not much going on anywhere near us. No fronts coming. No big moisture surges anywhere out there coming. So it's going to stay mostly dry, and we're just going to gradually moisten up our atmosphere here. And as that happens, we'll start to see a few little thunderstorms develop, and they'll increase a little bit more each day. It's going to be kind of a slow start into the rainy season pattern, it looks like, but it should be here next week.

This is for Saturday, though. A little bit of moisture for some stray storms, mainly in the afternoon and evening. On Sunday and Monday, a little bit higher chance. And then by Tuesday and Wednesday, I think even deeper moisture comes up from the Caribbean. And that may finally kick off our rainy season, and also getting our lawns and everything else turning to green once again.

There's the Caribbean. There is the Gulf. There's the Atlantic. Nice and quiet out there. Nothing going on. Nothing expected. Through the weekend, tropical development not expected.

Temperatures across the country, they're warm in the Southeast. Temperatures in the 70s and 80s. And severe weather ongoing right now in parts of Kansas as well as Nebraska.

For us tonight, a pleasant night. Nice and bright once the moon comes up. The low temperature in the mid 70s. Tomorrow, look for a mix of sun and clouds. A little bit warmer into the mid to upper 80s for tomorrow. On the water, a wind out of the east. 10, seas running two feet or less. A light chop on the bays.

And taking us through the holiday weekend, temperatures warming into the low 90s by Sunday. Also, a little better chance for thunderstorms as we get into next week. Also over the weekend, Hurricane 2021, Preparing in a Pandemic, Here's right here on CBS4 Saturday at 7:30, and Sunday at 11:30 AM. Back to you.
