It’s a summery Sunday along Florida’s southwest coast, with hot sun and the chance of a late-day storm. After another warm start, Sunday features plenty of sun for much of the day and a few storms forming along the Gulf breeze. Most of the activity will be in the interior, but the eastern suburbs could see a storm. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s along the coast and the mid 90s in the interior.
Monday will bring lots of sun, a few clouds, and the chance of an afternoon storm, with the bulk of the activity well to our east. Monday’s highs will be mostly in the low 90s.
Tuesday will see more of the same — good sun, a few clouds, and a late-day storm or two. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Wednesday will see plenty of sun and a few clouds, followed by a few afternoon storms forming along the Gulf breeze. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s.
Thursday’s forecast includes more typical summer weather — good sun for most of the day and a few late-day storms popping up along the Gulf breeze. Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
