Here is your evening forecast for Thursday June 13th, 2024.

Rain is winding down for the evening, dropping the flood threat across SWFL. Flooded roads will continue to improve overnight.

Check out some of these totals from across SWFL:

Overnight, we will see isolated to scattered showers, but not as intense as today. We'll have scattered showers and storms in the morning with the concentration over Lee, Collier, and Hendry. That rain will move out of area in the afternoon. It won't take much to trigger minor flooding again, as there isn't any room for the water to soak into the ground.

An additional 1-3" are possible through Saturday evening.

A Flood Watch remains in effect for Collier, Hendry, Glades, Lee and Charlotte until 8pm Friday but has been allowed to expire in DeSoto and Sarasota counties.

For Charlotte, Glades, DeSoto, and Sarasota, we are expecting a drier day with fewer downpours. Rainfall totals here are expected less than 1" through Saturday evening.

Isolated storms are possible Friday evening so keep the umbrellas close if you're heading out.

Rain chances will be scattered over the weekend. Father's Day is expected to start off dry with developing storms in the afternoon.

8PM National Hurricane Center Update:

The National Hurricane Center is watching two areas for possible development.

The first is part of the trough of low pressure currently bringing us the heavy rain. Now off the southeastern coast, it has a low chance of further development at 20% over the next 7 days.

The second is a broad area of low pressure over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. That area also has a 40% chance of developing over the next 7 days as it slowly drifts westward. It will pose no threat to FL.
