Southwest Florida on Tuesday morning!
Highs continue to hover above average. Cloud cover increases over time after starting with a partially cloudy sky.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms begin around lunchtime. Our inner counties first receive those rain chances. Eventually, those chances drop to zero after dark.
It is unlikely that there will be a lot of showers scattered in southwestern Florida on Wednesday. Anyway, we stick to lively weather patterns until the weekend.
There are two disturbances and one named storm in the Atlantic Ocean.
Nicholas landed in Texas earlier this morning as a weak Category 1 hurricane.
This system is currently a tropical cyclone and is expected to weaken to a tropical cyclone by Thursday before being slowly tracked to Louisiana.
Slow system speeds pose a major threat to floods on parts of the Texas and Louisiana coasts.
There is also turmoil off the coast of Africa, which is likely to form within the next five days (80%). Our meteorological model and NHC are fairly convinced that this turbulence will eventually result in a tropical cyclone or storm.
Our latest forecast model puts the system in a westward orbit before finally turning slightly north. We are still more than 3,000 miles away from this turmoil, so there is no imminent threat to southwestern Florida.
In addition, there is turmoil off the east coast of the United States, with a moderate (60%) chance of forming within five days. It poses no threat to Florida and is monitored for potential impacts on northern coastal states.
