Thursday brings more rounds of isolated storms

High temperatures will primarily reach the lower 90s under partly cloudy skies. Wind speeds will be slightly weaker, climbing to 10 mph by the evening. High humidity is still engulfing most of Southwest Florida. This will make “feels like” temperatures hit the upper 90s and triple digits during peak heating. Boaters will find great conditions on the water. One- to 2-foot wave heights are expected in the Gulf with a light chop in our bays.

Isolated showers and weak storms will persist throughout the morning. A few stronger storms will be possible in the late morning and early afternoon. The strongest of these will be capable of lightning, gusty wind and isolated flooding. However, severe weather is not expected. The WINK viewing area will be mostly dry by the evening and stay dry all night.

The Weather Authority is still monitoring an area of disturbed weather that will have a low (30%) chance of organizing into a named storm within the Gulf in the next five days. Regardless of formation, this will likely bring little to no impact to Southwest Florida. The next name on our 2022 storm naming list is Danielle.
