Highs in the 90s with storms Thursday afternoon and evening

Published: Updated:

High temperatures will reach the low – mid 90s across most of the WINK News viewing area. The warmest areas will be in our inland zones with Immokalee and Arcadia likely be the hottest at 95°. Best bet to beat the heat will be to head out near the coastline, where temps will be in the upper 80s and low 90s.

Expect triple-digit “feels like” temperatures during peak heating, due to Southwest Florida’s high humidity. Make sure to take breaks while working outside, stay hydrated and wear loose fitted and light colored clothing.

Scattered showers and storms will begin forming just after lunchtime. These will grow in number and strength into the evening, as the Atlantic and Gulf sea-breezes collide this afternoon. Expect pockets of moderate to heavy rain, lightning and localized flooding concerns.

The Weather Authority does not forecast any named storms to form in the Atlantic over the next five days. As we take a look further into the month, as of now, all looks quiet, great news with no tropical troubles expected through the end of the month.
