Tracking weekend storms, low tropical development potential in the Atlantic

Published: Updated:

It’s almost the weekend, Southwest Florida! As we head through the evening, rain chances will remain spotty and limited.

Expect a few showers moving east to west across the region. It will not be heavy or widespread, and the storm possibility has diminished.

Our weekend rain chances will be much different than the past few days. The trend will be “the earlier, the better” for outdoor plans.

We’ll see a few showers, mainly inland, late in the morning. Most of the rain and storms will approach the I-75 corridor and coast by the afternoon and evening timeframe.

Before the rain arrives, it’ll also be quite hot and humid. Highs will peak in the low-mid 90s with heat indices peaking close to 105°.

In the tropics, the Weather Authority is monitoring disorganized shower activity associated with a tropical wave. The potential for development over the next five days has dropped to 10%.

Formation, if any, will be slow to occur in the near-term. Next week, conditions for development will become slightly more conducive.

We’ll watch closely! The next name on our 2021 storm naming list is Danny.
