The Weather Authority is forecasting dangerous heat for your 4th of July plans.

A Heat Advisory will be in effect for all Southwest Florida communities until 8 p.m.

Highs soar into the mid to upper 90s with “feels like” temperatures ranging from 105—112°.

Temperatures are getting quite hot because rain will develop later.

The morning and afternoon will be dry along the coast for your boating or beach plans.

Scattered storms will develop inland later Thursday afternoon, and those storms will slowly work toward the coast through the evening.

Due to the later start of those storms, isolated rain and a few storms will be around the coast as fireworks hit the sky Thursday night.
