More rounds of scattered showers and storms through Wednesday

Published: Updated:

Scattered showers and storms continue to roll through Southwest Florida this afternoon and evening.

One or two strong storms are possible but not expected. Rain chances should wind down after sunset.

Another round of storms is expected to develop Wednesday. Just like today, scattered activity will start inland and slowly make its way to the coast.

Thankfully, we have one drier day in the forecast on Thursday! Tropical moisture content will lower, allowing for just a few spotty areas of rain.

In the tropics, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring one area off the coast of Newfoundland. It only has a 10% chance of tropical formation before a front will pick it up and push it out to sea late this week.

One of the reasons for our lack of tropical development is Saharan dust. This lowers activity in the Atlantic Basin, pushes vibrant sunrises and sunsets, and more. However, local allergy sufferers may notice more sniffling and sneezing.
