WEATHER-WXWALL


Scattered storms will roam through Southwest Florida for the balance of the afternoon and evening, and a few of today's storms may be intense with frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds.

The storms will be scattered in nature with the highest storm coverage expected over our inland communities, but even our coastal zones may see a passing storm before the evening is done.

After topping out in the low to mid 90s this afternoon, temperatures will settle into the mid 70s overnight into early Thursday morning.

We'll end up back in the low to mid 90s for Thursday afternoon with a blend of sunshine and clouds, and expect scattered storms to fire up during the heat of the day and into the evening.

Storms will be possible anywhere tomorrow, but the highest rain chances will be across our inland communities.

Expect a slight downward trend in rain chances for the upcoming weekend, but we'll still have enough moisture in place for some isolated afternoon storms.

Temperatures will continue peaking in the low to mid 90s during the day and cooling down into the mid 70s at night. Return to index of stories...
