The Weather Authority expects typical August weather for your Sunday, with a mix of sun and clouds, highs in the mid-90s, and a chance of storms in the afternoon.

Sunday will start off nice with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

By the afternoon hours, temperatures will soar into the mid-90s, with the heat index back into the triple digits area-wide.

The heat will be enough to spark scattered storms in the afternoon and evening.

Looking ahead to the workweek, expect daily storm chances across Southwest Florida. Otherwise, temperatures aren’t expected to budge much, with highs in the low to mid-90s and lows in the upper-70s.

In the tropics, Potential Tropical Cyclone Four failed to develop in the Gulf on Saturday, so the wait for Danielle continues. But, there is another disturbance to watch.

A vigorous tropical wave near the Cabo Verde Islands could become our next storm. Conditions are generally favorable for this to get slowly better organized while moving westward across the Atlantic this week. The National Hurricane Center currently gives the wave a low 20% chance of development.
