Spotty storms, humid ahead of a cold front Thursday

Published: Updated:

Happy Thursday, Southwest Florida! Muggy air will stick around today, prompting another hot and humid afternoon.

Temperatures will peak in the upper 80s near the coast and low-mid 90s inland. But when you factor in the heat and humidity, it’ll feel like 100°+.

Showers and storms will develop near the I-75 corridor around noon. After that, the Gulf sea breeze will generally shove that chance of rain inland.

As it does, a strong storm or two is possible near Lake Okeechobee in Highlands, Glades, and Hendry counties. Primary impacts would be gusty wind and lightning.

The Storm Prediction Center does have a sliver of Southwest Florida in a marginal risk (1/5), but the threat is very low.

Once the front moves into our region, a few showers could pop up along it this evening and overnight.

Friday will start out muggy with a few clouds, but humidity levels will plummet throughout the day.

This sets up a gorgeous weekend ahead as dew points flirt with the upper 40s and lower 50s!
