Today's Outlook

  • Play

Showers, storms & heavy downpours today.

Autumn in the northern hemisphere begins today at 10:29 pm when the sun is directly over the equator. Our weather will definitely fit into rainy season with an afternoon of showers &
thunderstorms. This morning will start out with some passing clouds and spotty showers; those clouds will be on the increase today and our rain will intensify by the middle of the afternoon. Heading into the afternoon our skies will become mostly cloudy while more showers come ashore in SWFL. Under the extra cloud cover and with the rain-cooled air, temperatures are heading to the middle 80s while our dew points hover in the lower half of the 70s. A cold front dropping into northern Florida will not make it to SWFL, but it is producing southwest winds overhead. Those winds will carry tropical moisture and energy through our atmosphere helping to produce heavy showers and thunderstorms later today. The rain is expected to subside during the early evening, but it will start up again tomorrow morning over the Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical moisture will remain overhead for the rest of the week helping to keep our chance of rain high as well as our skies mostly cloudy. The forecast models are showing the heaviest rainfall to occur between Thursday and Saturday. We can certainly expect more clouds than sunshine for the rest of the week as well.

Tracking the Tropics-

Edouard died out over the open waters of the Atlantic over the weekend and the National Hurricane Center is not tracking or forecasting any areas of interest for the next day or two. Upper level wind shear over the Atlantic near the west coast of Africa will help to keep the tropics quiet.
