Morning showers, afternoon storms as tropical moisture remains

Look out for a few showers throughout the morning commute Monday, as tropical moisture continues to be dragged in from the south from a low pressure system off the northeast coast of Florida. This system currently has a 30% chance of tropical development.

While this system does not pose a threat to us, as it is expected to move into southeast Georgia later today, it will continue to bring ample tropical moisture in across the area. This will lead to additional scattered storms developing Monday afternoon, with heavy downpours.

A Flood Watch continues on for Collier county through Monday evening for the potential to see localized flooding from those downpours.

Temperatures warm back into the low to mid 90s today with the heat index between 99 to 106 degrees.

The rest of the week is truly a “rinse and repeat” forecast, with highs ranging in the low to mid 90s and daily chances for scattered storms.
