Fort Myers set a rain record on Sunday

On Sunday, April 11, 2.05″ of rain fell in the rain gauge at Page Field Airport in Fort Myers, setting a new rain record. 

Before yesterday, the old record for April 11 was 1.1″ in 1911, according to the National Weather Service.

Sunday’s rainy and stormy weather was also the first time Fort Myers had more than 1″ of rain in 24 hours dating all the way back to February 14 when 2.15″ fell on Valentine’s Day. 

Sunday’s rain provided a good soaking for many communities. Doppler radar estimates peg more than 2″ west of Joel Boulevard in Lehigh Acres, 1.6″ in North Port, 1.3″ in Punta Gorda, and 1.4″ in Englewood and Port Charlotte.  

Additional community radar-estimated returns indicate 1.7″ in Cape Coral, 1.4″ in Estero, 1.6″ in Ave Maria and North Naples, 2.3″ in Port of the Islands, 3.3″ for Everglades City, 1.1″ for LaBelle, and .7″ in Clewiston.   

The National Weather Service measured 1.84″ in Naples, 3.15″ in Big Cypress, 1.67″ in Golden Gate, and 1.97″ near Marco Island. 

The greatly needed rain received last night and today made strides in pushing back on the running rain deficit for 2021. Since January 1, Fort Myers is now only down 1.7″ of rain to make up for the running rain deficit in 2021.   

Our forecast will trend drier over the next few days, as we have more sunshine on the way for Tuesday and Wednesday. Current data points to Friday as having the next best chance for showers in southern Florida.
