Cloudy skies and more rain

Wet weather continues in Southwest Florida as a mid level trough has induced an area of low pressure at the surface just near the coast of west Florida.  This, combined with a deep west/southwesterly wind flow is allowing showers and storms to develop in the Gulf of Mexico and wash ashore.  

With the onshore flow in place, this weekend may be somewhat similar to last weekend.  We will see showers developing in the Gulf, moving on shore in the morning with scattered showers and thunderstorms across Southwest Florida throughout the afternoon.

Thursday's Boating Forecast-

Winds: West 10 Knots
Seas & Rivers: 2 Feet
Bay & Inland Waters: Light Chop
Water Temperature: 85*

Tracking the Tropics-

The National Hurricane Center is tracking one tropical wave just coming off the coast of Africa. There is Saharan Dust covering much of the eastern Atlantic and further development is not expected.

Fairly strong upper level winds over the Gulf of Mexico and the eastern Atlantic is also responsible for preventing the low pressure system along Florida's east coast from developing or strengthening.

The National Hurricane Center is forecasting quiet conditions across the entire basin for the next several  days.
