Forecast: Dry & breezy weather continues
Fire danger remains elevated across SWFL for the end of the week as little changes in the overall pattern.
After a mostly cloudy day today, more sunshine will return for the end of the week, as high pressure from the Atlantic noses in from the northeast. This high will suppress any rain chances into the weekend and sustain the brisk east winds from the last few days.
Humidity also stays low with dew points only in the low 60s through the start of next week.
With drying brush, low humidity, and breezy conditions continuing, fire dangers will stay elevated across the area. Rain chances will stay close to zero for at least the next seven days, as a large ridge is expected to develop for the beginning of next week. That ridge will reinforce the dry pattern and help to boost temperatures well above normal.
By the middle of next week, daytime highs could soar into the mid 90s for most locations.
