Cold front in Florida, already

An approaching cold front will bring a better chance for rain across Southwest Florida for Wednesday, although the only cooler temperatures will be from the rain and additional cloud cover.  The front will be moving into Central Florida tomorrow afternoon bringing widespread showers and thunderstorms.  We could see between 1/4 and half an inch of rain across the area.
 
The cold front is not strong enough to clear out the moisture associated with it, meaning there will be lingering showers into Thursday.  Giving us another pretty good round of showers and storms.  A tropical wave moving in from the Windward Islands looks like it could clip South Florida on Friday and Saturday meaning some tropical moisture may make the end of the week and first part of the weekend remain a bit soggy.
 
Wednesday's Boating Forecast-
 
Winds: West 5-10 Knots
Seas & Rivers: 1-2 Feet
Bay & Inland Waters: Light Chop
Water Temperature: 89*
 
High Tide: 6 AM/12P
Low Tide: 12A/4P
 
Sunrise: 7:14 AM
Sunset: 7:30 PM
 
Tracking the Tropics-
 
Hurricane Edouard became a major hurricane this morning, a category three, but for a short time only.  As of the 5 pm advisory, it continues moving toward the north at 15 mph as a category 2 storm with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph. 
 
Another tropical wave is forecast to move off the coast of Africa but at this point, has only a 20% chance of strengthening within the next five days.
