Rain anytime Sunday

Remnants of what was Tropical Storm Erika are likely to impact southwest Florida over the coming days, beefing up rain chances. Regardless of the direction that Erika takes, the primary impacts from the storm will likely be periods of heavy rain, flooding and strong winds.

 

An Areal Flood Watch has been posted by the National Weather Service lasting through Monday evening and including every county in the region. The Fox 4 Weather Team urges all folks driving over the next few days to exercise extreme caution on the roadways when they're wet and avoid all flooded roadways as you may not know how deep the water is or what is under that water. At least 3 to 5 inches of rain are anticipated during the time frame from Sunday morning through Monday evening, although some areas may see locally heavier amounts.

 

Extensive southwest flow aloft is expected to push deeper moisture into southwest Florida beginning Sunday setting up a high probablity of rain at any time during the day and night. This pattern will be in place keeping rain chances elevated through midweek.

 

Because widespread rain is expected both days, temperatures will struggle to make it into the upper 80's each afternoon under overcast skies. Limited sunshine will also help to inhibit destabilization for strong to severe storms, although gusty winds up to 40 mph will be possible. By Thursday, we expect to return to a more typical pattern of sea breeze driven afternoon storms with afternoon highs reaching the lower 90's.
