Morning showers & downpours

The low pressure system over the Atlantic east of Florida is helping to develop and drive rain into SWFL this morning. The showers are expected to continue to strengthen through the morning bringing the possibility of heavy downpours to SWFL, primarily the Coastal Corridor.

Heading into the afternoon, the chance of rain is forecast to weaken across all of SWFL. Our skies will remain mostly cloudy helping to keep our temperatures in the mid and upper 80s. The winds may be breezy at times this afternoon from the west and southwest at 5-15 mph. Isolated showers will remain in the forecast for the evening and overnight hours while temperatures cool to the middle 70s.

Friday will start out with morning showers in SWFL followed by scattered rain for the afternoon. The sky is expected to be mostly cloudy which will help keeping temperatures below the 90 degree mark.

Our weather pattern of mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers & thunderstorms will continue over the weekend and early next week.

Tracking the Tropics-

There are two areas of interest across the Atlantic Basin that have low chances for development over the next 5 days.

The first is the elongated area of low pressure a couple hundred miles east of northern Florida. The thunderstorm activity is disorganized and expected to move northeasterly with no significant development. This low pressure system is forecast to merge with a cold front over the Atlantic on Friday.

The second area of interest is a tropical wave accompanying an area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles south-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Further development, if any, is expected to be slow while it moves westerly at 15 mph over the next several days. It has a 30% chance of tropical cyclone development over the next 5 days.
