TUTT Low keeps southwest Florida wet

Right now in north Florida, we have a TUTT low.  A TUTT Low stands for Tropical Upper Tropospheric Trough, which is quite a mouthful, so now you know why we call it a TUTT low.  

These systems are cut off from the jetstream, so they move very slowly, and there if often very cold air aloft with a TUTT low, and that will influence our weather through Wednesday, producing occasional rains, some heavy, and there is a possibility that a few storms could be on the strong side Tuesday, with the main concern being hail in the afternoon.

Over an inch of rain is possible again Tuesday in many communities, and on Monday, we received close to 2 inches in N. Ft. Myers, close to the El Rio Golf Course, and close to 3 inches just north of SWFL.
