Anyone at Marco Island now?

We are due to arrive at Marco Island tomorrow June 23 and stay thru the 29th. Looking at the weather forecast is very depressing as it sounds like Marco Island is getting hammered with rain!!! We are having nicer weather in Illinois right now than there it sounds. I was so looking forward to boating and the beach. Please tell me it hasn't been raining for the entire day???? Thanks so much!

I wouldn't worry too much. Those forecasts calling for rain/thuner showers are your typical summer weather pattern. Days usually start off very nice followed by afternoon clouds and a late afternoon thunder shower which normally doesn't last more than a couple of hours. By early evening it's usually finished and the same thing happens again the following day. It's not as bad as it looks.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but although that is usually the summer pattern and the weather forecast can be deceiving, it is VERY rainy right now in all of South Florida. I don't know how long it is supposed to last, but everyone is complaining about the rain and flooding in the Keys and I've heard Marco is experiencing the same. We were there for two weeks and came home last Saturday and had wonderful weather - hopefully it will get back to that soon!!:)

We just got to Sanibel and it's raining pretty hard and there are some pretty big waves. I heard there was a tornado warning for Naples.

Tropical storm Debby causing heavy rain and some severe thunder storms (tornado warning on Marco today expired 7:15pm). This may linger through Tuesday with clearing beginning on Wednesday. We always say "a rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day at work"...not sure we believe it but we say it hahaha!
