Here’s your evening forecast for Thursday, May 9th, 2024.

It was another hot and humid day across Southwest Florida. That trend will continue through Saturday morning before we enjoy a brief break right in time for Mother's Day.

We'll kick off your Friday with lows in the low and mid-70s. Hazy sunshine is expected, and in wind protected areas, patchy fog cannot be ruled out before 8am. Otherwise, a mostly sunny sky is expected with winds out of the south and southwest between 10-15 mph. Temperatures will stay hot, hitting highs in the lower 90s, but feeling more like the mid to upper 90s.

Friday night into Saturday morning, we'll see a bit more cloud cover as a weak cold front moves through. A spotty sprinkle Saturday morning cannot be ruled out, but major impact isn't expected. Behind that front, winds will shift and become northwesterly, driving in lower dew points and more comfortable air.

Mostly sunny skies are expected Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will stay in the lower 90s but with more comfortable humidity. That drier air will also be conducive for a more comfortable start Sunday morning in the mid to upper 60s, right in time for Mother's Day. Sunday will still be hot with highs around 90°, but at least we won't have to worry about an extra heat index with that lower humidity.
