Clouds and cooler air filtered into Southwest Florida Thursday, with highs only in the low 70s. Rain showers are developing in the Gulf of Mexico, and these showers will push into the area through the evening time frame. The showers should slowly diminish overnight, with lows in the mid 50s.

The weekend still looks great across the area. Expect plenty of sunshine both days with low humidity values. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 80s, with temps on Sunday in the low to mid 80s.

The nice weather continues into next week. A few more clouds will appear starting Monday, with highs in the mid 80s. Dry weather continues into Tuesday, with temps in the low 80s.

Our next storm system will likely arrive midweek, which will bring a good chance of showers and possibly storms to the area.
