springThe NWS reminds us that dry weather this afternoon could be conducive to fire! We’re in a┬áVERY HIGH Fire Danger over portions of South & SW Florida today.

Mother’s Day will be seasonably nice as well, with plenty of sun, a few clouds, and highs in the low to mid 80s.

Our dry and mostly sunny days continue into the first half of the workweek, but temperatures will inch up from Monday’s highs in the mid 80s to Wednesday afternoon temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 80s.
