Here’s your forecast for Wednesday, June 5th, 2024.

With showers few and far between, it was a record-setting day across SWFL. For only the fifth time EVER (going back to 1914), Punta Gorda hit 101°, breaking the former record of 98°. Fort Myers tied the record of 98°. Naples was cooled down by a sea-breeze and stayed closer to "normal" at 91°.

Tomorrow, our rain chance increases to 40% with showers developing near the coast around lunch, moving inland between I-75 and Lake Okeechobee for the afternoon, then drifting back toward the coast in the evening.

Highs tomorrow will climb up to 94° before the showers and storms cool things off for the evening. With the humidity it will feel more like 100-105°.

Scattered rain will be possible again on Friday with chances a little lower over the weekend around 20-30%.

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.
