Thunderstorms and mostly cloudy skies are expected on Wednesday


High temperatures will reach 80-90 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Sufficient humidity will still contribute to our highs above 90 degrees during peak heating. Water conditions will be excellent for boaters as they can avoid today’s storms during the afternoon and evening. Wave heights in the Gulf are forecast to be between one and two feet with light gusts in our bays.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected in southwest Florida on Wednesday. Separate rains and thunderstorms will begin in the first half of the day. They will initially remain weak before increasing in size and scope through the late afternoon and evening. Severe weather is not expected, but isolated flooding, damaging winds and lightning are possible during the strongest storms. All of these showers should weaken and disappear by late tonight. A slight chance of storms will return to Thursday’s forecast before a cold front kills any chance of rain by Friday.

Tropical Storm Carl is the only active named storm in the Atlantic Ocean. Carl is not a threat to Southwest Florida! It is located in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and will likely retain tropical storm status when it makes landfall in Mexico on Friday or Saturday. There are no additional disturbances in the Atlantic at this time.
