Here’s your forecast for Monday, May 27th, 2024.

It was another toasty day as we wrapped up our Memorial Day Weekend. No records today, but we still peaked in a degree shy of the record in Punta Gorda reaching 96°.

We are starting Tuesday morning in the mid to upper 70s along the coast, which is above our average of 71° for this time of year. During the afternoon with mostly sunny skies we will once again climb back in the mid 90s. Once you factor in the humidity it will feel like 100° this afternoon so take it easy outside this afternoon and make sure to stay hydrated. We will see just a 20% chance of an isolated inland shower after 1pm before the rain gets pushed to the other coast by the west wind.

A series of weakening cold fronts will start to move through the state starting Tuesday and that will bring a chance of afternoon rain back into the forecast. Right now that rain chance is expected to hover around 40-50% through the end of the workweek with the heat continuing with forecast highs staying in the mid 90s.
