Here’s your forecast for Friday, June 7th, 2024 and Saturday, June 8th, 2024.

It was another toasty day across SWFL with triple digit feels like temperatures. This evening we have also been track inland showers and thunderstorms. Those storms will stay inland and push off the east this evening thanks to the westerly winds.

Tonight, we will see mostly clear to partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the upper 70s. This definitely above normal, with the normal low of 73°.

Saturday will see temperatures warming into the low to mid 90s with mostly sunny skies. Westerly winds will also continue on Saturday. That will allow a few scattered showers and storms to develop close to I-75 in the morning before getting pushed inland during the afternoon.

Looking ahead to next week, tropical moisture surges north and that will lead to high rain chances starting Monday lasting through the middle to late parts of the week. Look for daily rain chances of 70 to 90%, with 7-day rainfall total ranging from 6 to 10 inches. That is drought busting rainfall and could even cause minor flooding concerns.

TROPICAL UPDATE:
Hurricane season started this past Saturday, but everything is currently quiet and formation is not forecast through the next 7 days. While some might on social media might be calling for the forecast for an active season a bust, remember hurricane season does typically pick up until July and peaks in September. NOW is the time to prepare ahead of a storm ahead of our next tropical system. For tips to get you and your family ready, check out our 2024 Storm Ready Hurricane Page.
