After a dry start, we will be watching for scattered showers and storms as we go through this afternoon and evening.
We will start the day with sunshine and a warm and muggy morning. Temperatures at sunrise will mostly be between and below 70 degrees – rising to 90 degrees in the afternoon. Including humidity, heat index values will rise mid and above 90 due to the heat of the day.
The storm will begin early today, breaking out as sea breezes blow near the interstate around lunchtime. The storm will make landfall as we move through the afternoon and evening — with the highest chance of rain today again centered on the Glades, Hendry and Collier inland. While most storms will be below the severe criteria, a few can be strong, bringing torrential rain, occasional lightning, and gusty winds.
The rest of the week will have classic rainy season weather — sunny mornings, scattered to broad afternoon storms and lower 90s highs.
Tropical Watch: There are currently no active hurricanes in the Atlantic and none are expected for the next 7 days. Hurricane season will officially begin on June 1.
