Today's Outlook

Possible rain throughout the day

Isolated showers and thunderstorms found over the Gulf early this morning will work their way back towards the Coastal Corridor of SWFL, especially Collier county, as our winds shift from the east to the south. This will bring scattered rain for parts of Collier, Lee and possibly Charlotte county during the later morning and early afternoon. During the mid and late afternoon, our sea breeze will force isolated rain to our Inland areas while the Coastal Corridor remains mainly dry. Later tonight and during the overnight hours our winds will shift to the east bringing some of our Inland rain back towards Lee and Collier county. Today's temperatures will warm to the upper 80s to the middle 90s while our dew points hover in the lower 70s.

Isolated rain will move through SWFL from south to north on Wednesday with the potential for a few heavy downpours, but overall our rainfall potential will be tapering off through the rest of the work week. Thursday may start out with morning rain over the Gulf and the Coastal Corridor before an afternoon of showers & thunderstorms.

The weekend will include our usual afternoon isolated showers & thunderstorms; there will be a better chance of rain on Saturday.

Tracking the Tropics-

Tropical Depression 2 formed on Monday in the open waters of the Atlantic; this morning it is located about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. It does have sustained winds of 35 mph and
is currently moving westerly at 16 mph. The depression is forecast to continue moving to the west and weaken becoming a trough of low pressure on Thursday or Friday. As this depression
approaches the Lesser Antilles and the Caribbean, it will encounter drier air and stronger wind shear; all of the tropical models show the system becoming a trough as it reaches the Lesser Antilles.
