Why do I need to put "for" in front of rain and fair skies in the following sentence?

According to the weather report the outlook for tomorrow is for rain
in the early part of the day and later for fair skies.

What's the difference between the first "for" used (for tomorrow) and the other two?
Thank you.

Hmm. I think you could easily lose the second 'for', because it follows so fast upon the first; the third 'for', however, helps to clarify the parallel structure-- which is not exact, actually. On second thought, it would be better to delete the first 'for' and retain the other two: much neater.

"the outlook for" is a noun parallel for the phrasal verb "to look out for".
"for tomorrow" is "with regard to tomorrow", "concerning tomorrow", "as applies to tomorrow".
