Possible heavy downpours today

Today is the first full day of autumn in the northern hemisphere and it will include a lot of cloud cover as well as a good chance of showers & thunderstorms. Our morning starts out mostly
cloudy and mainly dry as temperatures hover in the lower 70s. The chance of rain will gradually increase through the later morning and early afternoon with a few isolated showers possible. The heaviest rainfall will start to develop over the southern tip of the state before lifting north through SWFL. Those scattered showers & thunderstorms will include some heavy downpours once again. The mercury will top out in the middle and upper 80s under a lot of gray skies today. Heading into the evening hours the rain will come to an end while the clouds thin overnight.

Wednesday is looking like a near repeat of today with the rain starting out over the waters before showers & thunderstorms pound their way across SWFL from south to north.

This wet weather pattern will remain in place for the rest of the week; however, we may see the rainfall potential begin to weaken as we get to the weekend, but it will still be mostly cloudy.

Tracking the Tropics-

Once again we find the tropics quiet due to upper-level wind shear over the Caribbean and parts of the Atlantic while another surge of dry, dusty air exits the west coast of Africa. At this time there is nothing being tracked by the National Hurricane Center nor is there anything developing in the long range forecast models.
