A chance of severe weather with this today’s storms

Published: Updated:

Storms are popping across Southwest Florida this afternoon and storms will continue into tonight. Most of the activity will remain east of I-75, however, around 8 o’clock we will see the Atlantic sea breeze push a few storms and showers to the coast. With today’s storms, the area is under a level one out of five risk of severe weather with the main threats being large hail, lightning, flooding, and damaging winds.

The storms will come to an end around 10 tonight. We’ll start our Thursday off with mostly dry conditions and mostly cloudy skies.

The early cloud cover will help keep temperatures down a couple degrees in the afternoon. Expect high temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s. During the late afternoon, we’ll see another round of scattered storms develop.

As we take a look out in the tropics, there is a low-end chance of development just off of NE Florida.

The possible development could come from an area of low pressure that is actually crossing Southwest Florida tomorrow with an associated cold front. That front will usher in some drier air for us this weekend, leading to low end rain chances this holiday weekend.
