We’ve made it to Friday, Southwest Florida!
Highs will struggle to climb out of the 80s in the afternoon.
On and off rain chances will begin around breakfast and persist throughout the day. Expect similar rain chances to Thursday. Stronger storms will begin to form in the late afternoon.
Scattered rain chances will continue through the weekend and into Monday.
There are three disturbances in the Atlantic at the moment.
Two of these disturbances are located off of Africa. One has a low (20%) chance of forming within the next five days. The disturbance to the west now has a high (70%) chance of forming by early next week.
That disturbance, also known as Invest 95L, will initially track to the west when it forms, before the majority of our models have it turn back into the Atlantic.
We are also tracking an area of disturbed weather off the east coast of the United States. This will have a high chance of forming, but will likely only bring minimal impacts to the Carolinas and Northeast.
The next name on our 2021 storm naming list is Odette.
