Forecast: Mainly dry holiday weekend
Memorial Day weekend looks beautiful and problem free for much of Southwest Florida.
The only exception to that will be across the interior, where occasional pop-up showers will be possible each afternoon starting Friday. Otherwise, the sea-breeze will keep coastal spots dry through the holiday with high temperatures topping out near 90. Humidity will gradually make a return, becoming more noticeable into next week.
Speaking of next week, models are now in good agreement that a rainy season pattern should set up, as early as Monday. A moderate east wind next week will usher in more humidity, providing fuel for daily storms. The wind will be weak enough to allow for sea-breeze development, but strong enough to keep storm opportunities at the coast. This rain will hopefully curb the growing rain deficit across the area for the start of June.NBC2 (WBBH-TV)
