FORECAST:

This is your evening forecast for May 15th.

An approaching cold front will keep cloud cover and the chance for showers in the mix through tomorrow.

A cluster of thunderstorms offshore will move into Southwest Florida this evening. The threat for severe weather is dropping, but embedded thunderstorms producing lightning will be possible.

The front stalls tonight into Thursday, with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms continuing mainly along and to the south of the boundary. With onshore winds, we will see a high threat for rip currents for our area beaches.

The front starts to lift back northward on Friday, lowering rain chances to 20% on Friday into Saturday.

Looking ahead to the weekend, if you’re making outdoor plans, Saturday will be the drier of the two days. Another approaching system will bring us scattered showers and storms on Sunday. Drier air will return early next week.
