Scattered afternoon rain today

This morning is starting out with clouds streaming overhead along with a few showers taking aim at Collier county. A mid and upper level trough over the Gulf of Mexico and the Southeast will carry plenty of clouds and rain over the Sunshine State for the next several days. Today our skies will become mostly cloudy with scattered rain; the rain will increase in coverage and intensity through the afternoon hours. Temperatures will top out in the middle and upper 80s while dew points hover in the lower half of the 70s.

The overall weather pattern over the weekend and next week will remain the same with partly and mostly cloudy skies and temperatures heading for the middle and upper 80s. Most mornings will start out with rain over the Gulf of Mexico followed by scattered rain over SWFL.

Tracking the Tropics-

Edouard has weakened to tropical storm strength with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph and is expected to become a post-tropical storm later today. The storm is moving to the east at 7 mph as it continues to weaken. Edouard will continue moving to the east until it is expected to turn to the southeast on Sunday; however, it will remain in the open waters of the Atlantic.

An area of low pressure located between the west coast of Africa and the Cape Verde Islands has experienced some increase to its shower and thunderstorms activity. This storm may experience
some strengthening over the next few days before upper-level winds become less conducive for development next week. This area of low pressure will move slowly to the west-northwest with a
30% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next 5 days.

A non-tropical area of low pressure is forecast to develop along the east coast of Florida over the weekend. This system may take on some tropical or subtropical characteristics; however, mid
and upper level winds will carry this system to the northeast away from the southeast US coastline.
