Lots of clouds & rain

Scattered rain will be coming ashore from the north-northwest this morning as our skies begin to cloud up. The chance for rain increases through the later morning and early afternoon hours when we will start to see more showers & thunderstorms rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Indications in the weather models is that we can expect heavy downpours from these thunderstorms this
afternoon, especially around the Coastal counties. Our skies will eventually become cloudy keeping our daytime highs in the middle 80s for most neighborhoods. The winds will remain from
the west throughout the day becoming breezy later this afternoon at 5-15 mph. Isolated rain is expected to linger along the coastline during the evening and overnight hours.

Thursday morning will start out with scattered showers around the Coastal Corridor before another round of scattered rain develops over SWFL, especially around our Inland areas. Daytime
temperatures may bounce back just a bit, but the heavy cloud cover is expected to stick around for the end of the week along with scattered rain keeping temperatures a little below normal.

Friday and Saturday will include scattered rain possible throughout much of the day along with daytime highs in the middle 80s.

By Sunday we should see our rainfall confined to the afternoon hours and our temperatures return to the lower 90s. That pattern will continue for the first part of next week.

Hurricane Edourd is weakening with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph after strengthening to a category 3 storm yesterday becoming our first major hurricane of the season. It is currently located
575 miles east-northeast of Bermuda and moving to the northeast at 20 mph and expected to accelerate through this evening. In the forecast path, a turn to the east with rapid weakening and
slowing in forward speed is expected on Thursday when Edourd will lose hurricane intensity.
