Happy Sunday, SW Florida!

Your Labor Day Weekend is looking good overall with the potential for scattered showers & storms each day with highs in the lower 90s. Best rain chances will start along the coast in the morning, and build inland heading into the afternoon.

The tropics remain active, with Hurricane Larry, and another area of interest in the Gulf of Mexico.

Larry remains a Category 3 hurricane this morning, and the large Cape Verde hurricane is expected to maintain its major hurricane status over the next several days. By late next week, Larry is expected to brush east of Bermuda and stay away from the United States.

Meanwhile, Invest-91L is over the Yucatan this morning but bears watching over the next several days as it moves northward into the Gulf of Mexico. By late week, a weak storm could spin up, bringing a heavy rain threat to the northern Gulf Coast. The National Hurricane Center gives 91L a low 30% chance of becoming a depression or tropical storm over the next five days. Next name on the list is Mindy.
