FIRST WEATHER-RADAR TOPS


STORM WARN SEVEN DOPPLER RADAR LOOKING VERY WET RIGHT NOW.A MUCH DIFFERENT STORY THAN EARLIER TODAY

WHEN AT ONE POINT WE HAD MORE THAN 600 LIGHTNING STRIKES.

METEOROLOGIST DAVID HECKARD HAS BEEN KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON THE STORMS.

AND DAVID, TALK ABOUT A WILD AFTERNOON. Return to index of stories...


FIRST WEATHER-PHC


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.

STAYING STORMY ON SUNDAY

Thunderstorms continue rumbling across Southwest Florida this evening.

For Sunday, the east wind across the peninsula will dominate the forecast. That will allow for two weather features to set up. The first includes warm temperatures by lunchtime reaching into the low and mid 90s for a good portion of the region.

The second weather feature is that as the sea breeze develops off the Gulf of Mexico in the afternoon, the westward push of wind will spark scattered downpours and thunderstorms. Like Saturday, areas of rain and thunder should become quite widespread in coverage.

Considering the easterly wind flow, most storms will be pinned to Florida's interior and west coast on Sunday. That means rain and thunder will be in the forecast for the I-75 and US 41 corridors after lunchtime and through the evening. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


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.

STAYING STORMY ON SUNDAY

Thunderstorms continue rumbling across Southwest Florida this evening.

Though much of the activity across the interior of the state should begin to wane later tonight, a few storms may still be able to survive off shore over the Gulf of Mexico into early Sunday morning.

Temperatures will retreat to mild, yet seasonal levels in the mid to upper 70s overnight.

For Sunday, the east wind across the peninsula will dominate the forecast. That will allow for two weather features to set up. The first includes warm temperatures by lunchtime reaching into the low and mid 90s for a good portion of the region.

The second weather feature is that as the sea breeze develops off the Gulf of Mexico in the afternoon, the westward push of wind will spark scattered downpours and thunderstorms. Like Saturday, areas of rain and thunder should become quite widespread in coverage.

Considering the easterly wind flow, most storms will be pinned to Florida's interior and west coast on Sunday. That means rain and thunder will be in the forecast for the I-75 and US 41 corridors after lunchtime and through the evening.

For the upcoming work week, typical July late afternoon and early evening rain and thunder are likely. Temperatures look seasonal, peaking in the low 90s each afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

There are no tropical cyclones active in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico. Conditions do not look favorable for any organized tropical development through the span of the next three to five days as well.
