FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


OVERNIGHT AND WEEKEND RAIN CHANCES

Conditions across Southwest Florida look warm and muggy this evening, with lingering rain and thunderstorm activity remaining most widespread across the inland and east coast regions of the Florida peninsula.

There is the chance once again tonight of a few showers or storms developing over the Gulf of Mexico that push toward the coastal communities during the late overnight or early Saturday morning time frames. Overall coverage of this activity is expected to remain isolated.

Bearing the chance of an isolated morning shower or storm along the coast, most of the rain and thunder activity should be an inland event by Saturday afternoon. That means the greatest coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms is expected to fire for areas along and east of Interstate 75.

Temperatures on Saturday are expected to top out near 90 at Fort Myers, 88 at Naples and 92 at Immokalee.

As often is the case with thunderstorms this time of year, it's possible a few downpours or storms move back toward the coastal regions on Saturday evening. Overall coverage of this activity would be anticipated to remain rather isolated.

Late afternoon showers or storms triggered by the sea breeze are expected on Father's Day Sunday. Highs should be warm and humid near 91 degrees.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...
