The Weather Authority: Classic Southwest Florida summer day

Published: Updated:

It’s going to be a very typical Southwest Florida summer day with afternoon scattered storms and temperatures reaching the low to mid-90s in the afternoon.

Saturday started partly cloudy, with some coastal showers popping up. 

“When factoring in the humidity, ‘feels-like’ temperatures will top out around 100 to 105 degrees this afternoon,” said The Weather Authority Meteorologist Lauren Kreidler

A Heat Advisory is in place for Collier County from 8am until 5pm today due to the hot temperatures and high humidity.

Scattered showers and storms will impact our area this afternoon. Some storms that do develop could be on the heavier side, producing quick rainfall accumulations and numerous lightning strikes. 

Scattered storms come back into play on Sunday as we continue to see a southwesterly flow, but rain chances will shift more inland by the start of the upcoming workweek.

The tropics are busy! We are keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Beryl along with two other tropical waves that each have a medium chance of developing in the next week.
