Today's Outlook

  • Play

Big changes coming this weekend.

Our day is starting out with isolated showers and downpours coming ashore in SWFL; a line or two of rain will develop over the Gulf bringing rain to our coastal areas. Overall, these lines of rain will slowly drift south as the showers & thunderstorms come ashore. Gradually that rain will start to
reach our Inland areas while rain continues to stream across our Coastal Corridor. Eventually the rain coming ashore will end up dropping to Collier county later today while showers &
thunderstorms continue to fire east of I-75. Our skies will vary between partly and mostly cloudy for much of the day while temperatures warm to the upper half of the 80s with a few neighborhoods hitting 90 degrees.

Spotty rain will likely be coming ashore around Collier county Thursday morning while the rest of SWFL remains mainly dry. That spotty rain will continue moving west to east primarily south of
the Caloosahatchee; it will be a lower rainfall potential day. By Friday, our chance of rain will be limited to mainly our Inland areas east of I-75.

Taking a look at the weekend, a cold front will be moving down the Florida peninsula on Saturday bringing us an increase to the clouds as well as scattered rain throughout the day. On Sunday we will find ourselves behind this front and feeling our dew points drop towards the 60 degree mark. Those dew points will begin to climb on Monday heading back to the upper 60s for the work week.

Tracking the Tropics-

The National Hurricane Center is no longer tracking the subtropical low drifting to the northeast away from Bermuda. Wind shear over the Caribbean along with another very strong surge of dry, dusty air exiting the west coast of Africa is keeping much of the Atlantic Basin very quiet.
