Friday morning will begin quite warm and humid once again, with temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Scattered rain and storms will impact your Friday plans, with most of them developing in the afternoon and evening.

Highs will be in the lower 90s with “feels like” temperatures ranging from 97 – 102°. 


Saharan dust slowly moves out of Southwest Florida on Saturday, which means more rain will pop up and impact your weekend.

Scattered rain and storms are looking likely Saturday afternoon and evening. 

Due to the Saharan dust moving out and a bit more sunshine, highs will be warmer and in the lower to mid-90s.

“Feels like” temperatures will also be hotter and range from 102 – 107°. 

A broad trough of low pressure located a few hundred miles off the southeastern U.S. coast continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

Environmental conditions appear marginally favorable for some additional development of this system over the next couple of days before it moves inland over the southeastern U.S. by this weekend.

While this area is given a low chance for development, rain showers will increase across parts of Southwest Florida over the next few days.

There is a low 10% chance of further development over the next seven days.
