FORECAST: Hot through the holiday weekend

Updated: 2019-05-23 06:05:48Z

We're turning up the heat in SWFL as we head toward the end of the work week as high pressure in the upper atmosphere strengthens over the southeast. Chances for rain will be slim to none as the high pressure suppresses the development of any showers, with a mix of sun and clouds expected Thursday and Friday afternoons. Temperatures will start in the 70s each morning and heat to the low 90s through the start of the weekend.

The hottest temperatures will occur Sunday and Memorial Day with mid to upper 90s away from the coast. Rain again will be absent from the forecast due the strong high pressure. It will begin weakening by mid-week, and that combined with an increasing southeasterly flow will lead to the return of a few showers and storms by mid to late next week.
