Here’s your forecast for Thursday, June 6th, 2024.

It was another record-setting day in Punta Gorda, hitting 97°, breaking the former record of 96° (1993).

The heat helped to fuel strong storms inland, including one that produced a funnel cloud in LaBelle and a landspout tornado near Port LaBelle, the first tornado of 2024 in SWFL.

Overnight, our skies clear and we stay warm with lows back in the mid to upper 70s.

We'll kick off Friday with lots of sunshine. A few coastal showers will be possible mid to late morning.

With westerly winds setting up Friday afternoon and evening, the best chance for isolated storms will stay inland, away from our coastline.

Hurricane season started this past Saturday, but everything is currently quiet and formation is not forecast through the next 7 days.

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.
