FIRST WEATHER-WX CTR


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.EVENING SHOWERS AND SEABREEZE STORMS

Isolated showers and a few thunderstorms will remain in the forecast tonight. Otherwise, temperatures look to bottom out in the low to mid 70s.

Once again on Sunday, we'll stand the chance for some rain and thunder. With the Gulf of Mexico seabreeze, we'll stand the risk for storms east of I-75 in the afternoon, and then toward the US 41 corridor in the evening.

Highs on Sunday look seasonal, yet muggy. Temps look to max out near 92 in Fort Myers, 90 at Naples and 92 at Port Charlotte.

The rest of the work week looks rather typical for Southwest Florida in July. Late afternoon showers and storms compliments of the seabreeze are expected from Monday onward. Return to index of stories...

WE CALLED CURRY AND KNOCKED ON HER DOOR TODAY FOR COMMENT -- SHE DIDN'T ANSWER.

ROGERS SAYS CURRY ACTUALLY WENT TO SCHOOL FOR ACCOUNTING AND SHE THINKS CURRY MAY HAVE BEEN TRICKED BY HER MOM.
