WEATHER-WXWALL


WARM TEMPS TO DOMINATE THE WEEKEND

Warm temperatures and reduced coverage of rain on Saturday highlight the upcoming weekend forecast across Southwest Florida.

On Saturday, a wedge of somewhat drier air will continue to be over the Florida peninsula, cutting back on the coverage of rain across the state. Though an isolated shower or thunderstorm will be remain possible, it appears most backyards in the region will trend to stay on the dry side through Saturday afternoon.

Though the coverage of rain will be below what's seasonal for July in Southwest Florida tomorrow, temperatures will be warmer than what's typical for this time of year. The average high temperature at Fort Myers is 92 degrees for this time of year. On Saturday though, temps at their warmest are expected to be closer to the mid 90s, with expected highs approaching 94 degrees at Fort Myers.

Inland areas of the state could see afternoon temps approach the mid to upper 90s just after lunchtime on Saturday.

On Sunday, we will have a more favorable weather setup to allow conditions yielding late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and storms. Highs should continue to top out just warmer than average, with temps near 93 degrees.

For the upcoming work week, showers and thunderstorms look likely in the afternoon for Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures should max out in the low to mid 90s in the afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Tropical weather conditions are generally quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. There are no tropical features in play at this time, and no organization of any tropical activity is expected through the course of the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...
