Still searching for that perfect Father's Day gift? With rain expected all weekend long (and widespread rain on Sunday) an umbrella is a practical gift. Plus, you can always use an umbrella in Florida 😉 ☔️ or 🏖️

Wow. Look how the morning is starting in Charlotte County. Pink skies with clouds building in.

Two views of developing rain, and they are both awesome! Fort Myers Beach showing the bottom of those towering showers, while we see the tower itself looking into the Gulf from Campo Felice in downtown Fort Myers!

We have a nice view of this storm from RSW as it approaches the Gateway area (as well as the airport itself!)

A neat shot looking into the Gulf as the sun rises over Sanibel this morning

A few lingering showers throughout the morning are possible, but most are already seeing the return of sunshine! We'll have another round of thunderstorms this afternoon though, plus rain and thunderstorms again tomorrow morning. Umbrellas getting a workout the last few days! ☔️

A pretty cool shot of storms in Collier county from Southwest Florida International Airport! A few showers and storms are still possible this morning, but we should be in a brief lull in activity for the next few hours until thunderstorms develop inland this afternoon.

*This* is why we use the cliche' phrase "when thunder roars, go indoors" Lightning can strike up to 10 miles outside of a storm, so even if it's not raining on you, if you can hear the rumbles of thunder, you're close enough to be struck by lightning.

Alright ...we both know I don’t follow hockey so I won’t be a bandwagon fan, but my timelines are full of Blues stuff...and I can’t resist

We've had a few onshore showers already this morning, and while they're still possible the next few hours, better chances for rain will be focused along and east of I-75 this afternoon. Temperatures will reach the upper 80s and low 90s.

A few showers and storms and moving to the NE, so areas along the coast, especially Collier up through Lee counties, expect that activity to roll your way within the next few hours. Remember you can check out the radar online when we're not on air here >>

It's warmer than normal and uncomfortably muggy...but we still have some beautiful views to start off our Saturday!

It's 4:30 in the morning...and there are still temperatures in the 80s (we should be in the low to middle 70s) 🥵 Onshore flow is keeping us warm and humid this morning, and this pattern sticks in place, which means tomorrow morning will be warm and humid as well.

Plain or peanut? Neither! We have a multi-modal radar under the black radome "candy shell" of the "M&M" under Miss Piggy. Take a look inside as we prep for hurricane season. Learn more about the WP-3D -

Today is a significant day in history. My colleague Meteorologist Rob Duns spent some time this morning explaining just how important the weather was in determining when to storm the beaches of Normandy 75 years ago.

Check it out! You can see the heavy rain in the Gulf from our Captiva Beach camera this morning. That rain is all moving away from the coast right now.
