We’re enjoying another nice and dry day in Southwest Florida on Monday!
Look for a cool start to the day before highs that return to a decline to the mid-80s under a combination of sun and clouds.
While Tuesday will be a dry start, rains and storms are returning to the area starting Tuesday night and Wednesday night as the low-pressure system moves across northern Florida.
We will need to monitor the potential for an isolated severe and severe storm from Tuesday night to Wednesday when level 1 of 5 serious risk exists in southwest Florida for both days.
The main threats will be destructive winds and lightning, but the tornado threat is not zero.
Now the rainfall will be highest in the areas farthest to the northwest, where rainfall could be about an inch in Sarasota and northern Charlotte County. These amounts are reduced for areas further south and east.
Dry weather will return to St. Patrick’s Day, silence will remain until Friday.
