Here’s your forecast for Friday May 3rd, 2024...

It was another HOT day. As a matter of fact, for the second day in a row Punta Gorda hitting a high of 94°. Fort Myers hit 93° which was 4° higher than our average of 88° for this time of the year. Naples hit 91°, one degree shy of record.

Tonight, we will have partly cloudy skies, becoming mostly clear through the overnight. Lows will be around 70 degrees.

Saturday morning, we are once again waking up in the upper 60s to low 70s with plenty of sunshine. We are forecasting a high temperatures of 90° with storm chances building after 2pm. Our afternoon rain at 40%.

The increase in chances is as an upper level disturbance approaches the state. It will weakens as it moves through but it will increase our moisture. Elevated shower chances remain on Sunday, with 50% chance.

Looking ahead to next week, after Monday the Bermuda High builds back in across the area bringing very warm and much drier conditions starting Tuesday lasting through the end of the week.
