Happy Monday, Southwest Florida!

Our weekend heat will continue into the workweek. Expect highs to return to the low 90s.

Our feels like temperatures will reach the 100s once again.

Pop-up thunderstorms will begin around lunchtime. These will become stronger in the mid-afternoon, marching from the southeast to the northwest.

A plume of Saharan Dust will slightly drop our rain chances on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Boating conditions will be fantastic. The main hazard will be our afternoon storms.

What was previously Hurricane Henri is now a tropical depression situated over the New England area. Gusty winds and flooding will be the primary concern with this system before it leaves the United States on Tuesday.

The Caribbean disturbance poses the most immediate threat to land, but there are two other disturbances that could develop in the open Atlantic this week. Next names are #IDA, #JULIAN, & #KATE.

All three disturbances have a 40% chance to develop into a tropical system in the next 5 days.
