Southwest Florida’s stretch of unseasonably warm weather continues Thursday as temperatures are forecast to climb into the mid 80s through the afternoon under partly cloudy skies. The average high for this time of year is 79 degrees, so we'll be running about 5 to 7 degrees above average.
One thing to watch for this morning, as well as the next few mornings, is the potential for patchy dense fog, particularly in inland areas. The fog that manages to form will tend to lift away by mid-morning, giving way to a mix of sun and clouds. Our rain chance will be at 10 percent or less today.
For those already thinking ahead to the weekend, our weather pattern won't change much between now and then, which means we'll continue to see weather warmer than normal along with partly sunny skies each afternoon. Daytime highs will easily reach the mid 80s, and humidity levels will be a few notches higher too. Rain prospects, however, will stay quite low each day with rain chances no greater than 20 percent.
