Temperatures will reach the low to mid-90s on Sunday, with scattered afternoon storms working their way into the forecast.

In fact, temperatures will stay steady this week, in the low 90s, with a chance for scattered storms each and every day.

“Sunday’s storms will be fueled by ample moisture and the development of sea-breeze boundary leading to the increased rain chances into the afternoon,” explained The Weather Authority Meteorologist Lauren Kreidler.

On Saturday, Fort Myers measured 2.47″ of rain from the thunderstorms that developed.

Winds are out of the east/southeast, with Gulf wave heights reaching 1 to 2 feet. The water temperature in the Gulf is holding steady at 85 degrees. Bay and inland waters will see a light chop today.

“It won’t be a bad day to spend out on the water; make sure to keep an eye on those afternoon storms that will develop as the day goes on,” added Kreidler.

The area in the Southwestern Gulf that The Weather Authority has been watching now has a 40% chance of developing in the next week as it nears Mexico and southern Texas. Aside from that, there are no other areas to watch in the tropics at this time.
