Hot and humid Sunday under partly cloudy skies

Highs will reach the upper 80s and low-90s under partly cloudy skies. Ample humidity will make our “feels like” temperatures reach the upper 90s in many locations. Boaters can expect pleasant conditions on the water. Light chop within our bays and one to two-foot wave heights are forecast within the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Low-end rain chances exist for the southernmost communities within the WINK viewing area. After a dry start to day, these weak showers will likely form in Collier County first. These will stick around into tonight before completely disappearing by midnight. Severe weather is not expected.


There are two disturbances and no active named storms in the Atlantic. One disturbance near Bermuda has a low (10%) chance of formation within the next five days. It will bring no impacts to Southwest Florida. A separate disturbance in the Caribbean now has a high (80%) chance of becoming a tropical depression or tropical storm by Friday.

A large area of high pressure to its north will likely keep the system in the Caribbean Sea.  Model plots are in strong agreement of a potential landfall in Central America if it does develop. The next name on our 2022 storm naming list is Lisa.
