SWFL in cone for potential weekend tropical system

Published: Updated:

Good Monday, Southwest Florida! We’ve got more hot and humid weather in store for the start of the workweek.

Temperatures will return to the mid-to-lower 90s this afternoon under increasing cloud cover.

Triple digit “feels like” temperatures will also return to the region today. Unfortunately, that humidity will also stick with us for the next few days.

Isolated rain chances will exist this morning before they become scattered in the afternoon. These showers and storms will persist into the evening before weakening after dark.

We are locked into a rainy season pattern at the moment, so expect scattered showers every day of this week.

The National Hurricane Center renamed Invest 94L as Potential Tropical Cyclone Six on Monday, meaning it will likely become a depression or Tropical Storm Fred as it moves westward through the Antilles & Bahamas this week. Impacts are possible in Florida by this weekend.

Good news is mountainous land interaction, dry air & wind shear should keep it on the weak side.

This is nothing to get too worked up over, but now is a good time to go over your Hurricane Plan in case you need to take action. It is the peak of hurricane season after all.
