Good evening Southwest Florida! It was a cool, cloudy day across the region Friday with temperatures well below our average of 76° for this time of year. Fort Myers only saw a high of 66°. Overnight tonight, temperatures will not as chilly as Thursday night, but will still see lows in the mid to upper 50s along with mostly cloudy skies.
We will warmup over the weekend as the front stalled to our south will start moving back north as a warm front. That boundary will bring morning clouds on Saturday before becoming partly cloudy during the afternoon with temperatures returning to the upper 70s and low 80s. Temperatures will continue to warm into Sunday, with highs in the mid 80s and mostly sunny skies.
Looking long term, we stay warm next week with highs staying in the mid 80s and overnight lows in the mid 60s through Wednesday. A weak cold front looks to arrive next Thursday into Friday but does not look like a significant cool down at this time.
