All eyes are on our next cold front set to pass through Southwest Florida tonight!
Ahead of the front, look for a warm, humid, and windy day for Thursday. Highs will climb back into upper 80s to lower and middle 90s by this afternoon with the humidity leading to a heat index between 94 – 99 degrees.
By this evening, we’ll start to see a broken line of rain and storms move through the area. This will start in our northern counties around 6pm to 7pm, and weaken as it moves southward into tonight.
Hence, the better chance for any of these storms to become strong or severe exists north of the Caloosahatchee River, where a Level 1 and 2 out of 5 risk exists.
The highest threats today will be gusty winds and hail.
Rainfall amounts won’t amount to much, with the heaviest forecast amounts of only a quarter of an inch of rain focused north.
The rain will come to an end tonight, leaving us dry and less humid for Friday and the weekend!
Look for cooler weather to return as well, with highs back into the upper 70s and low to mid 80s Friday through Saturday. We’ll also get to enjoy some cooler mornings in the 50s both Sunday and Monday morning!
