Hot and humid with isolated storms Monday afternoon

High temperatures will reach the upper 80s and low 90s under partly cloudy skies. Ample humidity will still make our “feels like” temperatures reach the upper 90s during peak heating. If they can avoid our afternoon and evening rain chances, boaters will be met with excellent conditions on the water. They will encounter a light chop within our bays and 1- to 2-foot wave heights within the Gulf.

Isolated storms are expected for Southwest Florida on Monday. After a dry morning, cloud cover will increase into the late morning where a few storms will form after lunchtime. These will grow in scale and strength as the day progresses into the evening. Severe weather is not expected, but our strongest storms will be capable of isolated flooding, gusty winds and lightning.

What was formerly known as Hurricane Julia left the Atlantic Ocean and crossed into the Pacific Ocean. This has left only one active disturbance in Atlantic Basin. An area of disturbed weather in the Caribbean Sea will have a low (10%) chance of formation over the next five days as it enters the Bay of Campeche later this week. Early indications suggest that this system will likely remain in the Western Gulf. Karl, Lisa and Martin are the next names up on our 2022 storm naming list.
