530AM~STORMWARN FORECAST-WX CTR TO WX WALL


CHANCES FOR STRONG STORMS AGAIN FRIDAY

Some minor flooding was reported in parts of Lee County as strong storms rolled through Thursday afternoon. Some spots picked up over 3" of rain. Another round of those types of storms will be possible again Friday. However, a hint of Saharan Dust will try and move in from the Atlantic this afternoon which, in theory, should dry the air and lower the overall storm potential. Taking that with a grain of salt or dust, no pun intended, will still mention the chances for isolated strong storms again Friday.

Highs Friday will be near normal. Calling it 92° in Ft. Myers and 89° in Naples. As the sun sets and the clouds move out overnight, temperatures will drop down to the low 70s before waking up Saturday morning.

Rain chances ramp back up heading into the weekend. Expect scattered showers and storms during the afternoon both Saturday & Sunday. Highs both days will be around 92°.

Beach plans for the weekend look pretty good. A few pre-dawn showers are possible and can't completely rule out an isolated shower sneaking over the coastal areas during any afternoon this weekend.

Tropical Update

It remains very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic. Two areas of Saharan dust will keep a lid on any activity over the next week.

No major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

530AM~STORMWARN FORECAST-WX CTR TO WX WALL


CHANCES FOR STRONG STORMS AGAIN FRIDAY

Some minor flooding was reported in parts of Lee County as strong storms rolled through Thursday afternoon. Some spots picked up over 3" of rain. Another round of those types of storms will be possible again Friday. However, a hint of Saharan Dust will try and move in from the Atlantic this afternoon which, in theory, should dry the air and lower the overall storm potential. Taking that with a grain of salt or dust, no pun intended, will still mention the chances for isolated strong storms again Friday.

Highs Friday will be near normal. Calling it 92° in Ft. Myers and 89° in Naples. As the sun sets and the clouds move out overnight, temperatures will drop down to the low 70s before waking up Saturday morning.

Rain chances ramp back up heading into the weekend. Expect scattered showers and storms during the afternoon both Saturday & Sunday. Highs both days will be around 92°.

Beach plans for the weekend look pretty good. A few pre-dawn showers are possible and can't completely rule out an isolated shower sneaking over the coastal areas during any afternoon this weekend.

Tropical Update

It remains very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic. Two areas of Saharan dust will keep a lid on any activity over the next week.

No major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
