Above average temperatures continue into the work week

Published: Updated:

This Mother’s Day has been a hot one for Southwest Florida! We started to the day off with a low of 72 degrees in Fort Myers, which is a couple degrees above average, but by the afternoon the temperature climbed to 93! That’s four degrees above seasonal.

The warmer than normal weather will linger into Monday. We’ll start the day off with mild temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s across Southwest Florida. During the afternoon, the mercury will soar into the low to mid 90s with “feels like” temperatures in the upper 90s.

Make sure to stay hydrated and avoid spending too much time outside. Also, remember to plan the dog walk for the morning or evening because the sidewalk will be way too hot for your pup’s paws in the afternoon!

Today was fairly dry, apart from a few showers and storms that developed during the early evening in Hendry and Collier counties. The overnight hours will remain dry, but cloudy. Tomorrow we will see a mix of clouds and sun, as well as, isolated storms. The storms will begin to pop inland during the late afternoon and push towards the coast during the dinner hour. The activity will come to an end by the late evening.

We won’t have the greatest conditions tonight, but the International Space Station will briefly pass into view. The clouds and low orbit will make it difficult to see tonight, but we have multiple chances tomorrow. The first at 4:00am. Again at 5:33am and 8:33pm. The pass-over during the 5 o’clock hour will have the best height for viewing.
