Cold front brings record cool temperatures to Southwest Florida

Reporter: Nash Rhodes
Published: Updated:

High temperatures will reach the upper 60s and lower 70s under mostly cloudy skies. Expect that cloud cover to subside in the evening, as a powerful cold front will push through Southwest Florida. Breezy conditions and a few showers are expected while the front passes through the region. Boaters will experience a moderate chop in our bays with 3- to 5-foot wave heights in the open Gulf waters. High temperatures will not return to the 80s until either Friday or Saturday.

A few showers will form Wednesday morning and afternoon. These will likely not become thunderstorms. By the evening, expect any rain chances to drop thanks to the dry air behind our cold front.

That dry air will practically eliminate Southwest Florida’s rain chances for the next week. The change will especially be felt this weekend, when mostly sunny skies are in the forecast.

No named storms or disturbances are active in the Atlantic. Additionally, no named storms or tropical depressions are expected to form within the next five days.
