Here’s your evening forecast for Monday, June 10th, 2024

Overnight, showers and storms will overspread SWFL, leading to a wet and soggy commute (and most of the day.)

Deep tropical moisture, surging up from the south, will lead to excessive rainfall starting Tuesday, continuing through the work week. This is the rainfall forecast through Thursday at 5pm. (Keep in mind more rain will fall Friday into Saturday on top of this.)

European Model Forecasting 5-10" of rainfall through Thursday afternoon

This is truly a drought-breaking rain; however, we are looking at the potential of up to 15" of rainfall through Saturday, which will lead to scattered flooding.

A Flood Watch is in effect from midnight through Wednesday night for Hendry, Glades and Collier counties. This is likely to be expanded for ALL of SWFL as rain accumulates.

Once swales and drainage ditches fill, scattered flooding will become a concern. Residents in areas that are prone to flooding should remain vigilant.

The showers and storms will continue each and every day this week, with rain chances between 90% to 100% through Friday.

The rain and cloud cover will keep our temperatures ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s.

It will also be breezy with gusts between 20-25 mph Tuesday and Wednesday.

TROPICAL UPDATE:

The deep tropical moisture bringing us heavy rain this week is not related to any potential tropical storm development. No formation is forecast for the next 7 days.
