Lower rain chances for Southwest Florida today
Happy Thursday, Southwest Florida!
Lower rain chances give way to higher temperatures this afternoon. Our entire viewing area will reach the 90s for highs with 5-15 mph winds out of the east.
We will lose a large amount of our tropical moisture today. The highest concentrations of remaining moisture can be found in many of our southern communities. That will still be enough to fuel triple-digit heat index values for those places.
Rain chances are only isolated today. Spotty storms will begin to form in the early afternoon and persist until sundown.
We will slightly increase our rain chances into Friday, before substantial chances return to the forecast this weekend.
On the other hand, this weekend’s high temperatures will be slightly lower due to the increased rain chances.
Boaters can expect light to moderate chop on the water today, with wave heights reaching 1-2 feet.
We are monitoring one weak disturbance in the Northern Atlantic. This only has a low (10%) chance of forming within the next five days. Regardless, the disturbance will have NO impacts on the United States as a whole.
The next name on our 2021 storm naming list would be Fred.
