Another day of hazy skies and lower rain chances

Happy hump day, Southwest Florida!

Our run of above-average high temperatures continues. Highs will reach the mid-90s under hazy skies.

The air will be unseasonably dry, dropping our “feels like” temperatures into the upper 90s in some spots.

Rain chances will be isolated and most of us will stay dry. Expect slightly lower rain chances than what we saw on Tuesday.

A classic rainy season pattern will take over on Thursday and continue through the weekend.

There are currently three disturbances in the Atlantic.

Our disturbance in the Caribbean has a high (80%) chance of formation over the next five days.

The latest model guidance suggests that this system could enter the Gulf of Mexico by next week. This is poses no immediate threat to Southwest Florida, but we will continue to track its progress moving forward.

We additionally have two other disturbances in the Atlantic Basin. One has a high (80%) chance of formation by the start of next week. Positioned to that system’s southeast is a tropical wave with a low (30%) chance of formation within the next five days.

Thankfully, these storms are forecast to take a northerly turn in the near future. This would take them farther out to sea and likely lessen any potential impacts the United States might see.

The next three storms on our 2021 naming list are Ida, Julian, and Kate.
