Coolest morning since May for parts of Southwest Florida

Published: Updated:

Southwest Florida is experiencing one more cool morning before conditions return to normal for late September.

Temperatures so far this morning have dropped to 69° in Fort Myers, 67° in Punta Gorda, and 71° in Naples. This marks the coolest start since May 18th, May 22nd, and June 16th respectively.

Wednesday will feature another day with dewpoints in the 60s and little-to-no rain. Highs will rebound to the upper 80s, but with the lower humidity, it’ll only feel between 90° – 95°.

By Thursday, moisture will slowly begin creeping in from the south and southwest. This will allow for a gradual increase in humidity and isolated storms to return.

By Friday, deep tropical moisture will ramp up across all of Southwest Florida. This will allow for a sticky afternoon with scattered storms. This trend continues all the way through the weekend!

In the tropics, most spots are quiet this morning. Teddy and Beta are all considered post-tropical systems. Teddy will continue to batter the Canadian coast with tropical storm force conditions through Thursday.

Although we are past the historic peak of hurricane season, late September and October are statistically an active time in the tropics. Don’t let your guard down! You can trust the Weather Authority to keep you updated.
