Here’s your forecast for Thursday, May 16th, 2024.

Good evening, Southwest Florida! It was a rather stormy day across SWFL with some places like in Cape Coral seeing over 3 inches worth of rainfall. We also had some damaging thunderstorms in Immokalee Thursday afternoon, that led to numerous down trees.

Tonight, storm chances will come to an end as the skies begin to clear. It still will be a warm night with lows in the upper 70s, almost 10 degrees above normal.

It gets even hotter on tomorrow as we will see our temperatures climb back into the low to mid 90s. We are forecasting 93° which is well above our average of 90°. It will be mostly dry tomorrow as our rain chances come down. You factor in the humidity tomorrow and it will feel like the triple digits.

Looking ahead to the weekend, we will be even warmer on Saturday with highs in the mid 90s with feels like temperatures 105° to 110°. Rain chances will remain low on Saturday as well. That rain chance comes up on Sunday where we are looking at a 50-60% chance of scattered T-storms.
