Weekend rainfall expected to bring relief to SW Florida

Published: Updated:

Happy Thursday, Southwest Florida! This afternoon, everyone will see highs soar into the mid-upper 80s with plentiful sunshine.

Elevated wind, drier-than-normal conditions, and low humidity are contributing to a very high fire danger index for Lee County today.

Relief from the fire risk and our rain deficit is on the way by Sunday! The tail end of a large storm system will bring scattered rain and even a few storms.

Rain and storms look to be most widespread both Sunday and Monday. As the front stalls, we’ll see spotty rain lingering even through Tuesday and Wednesday.
