Above-average Wednesday heat precedes a cooler end to the week

Published: Updated:

High temperatures will reach the mid-80s under partly cloudy skies. High humidity will create morning fog and make many locations feel like they are experiencing highs in the 90s. A weak cold front will push through in the afternoon. This will usher in drier air for the evening and night.

The front will also produce a few showers. These will primarily bring rain chances to the northwesternmost counties in the WINK viewing area. They will be entering the area Wednesday morning and afternoon, before mostly raining themselves out by the late afternoon and evening as they push into Collier and Hendry counties.

Severe weather is not expected. After the front passes through, high temperatures will dip into the 70s on Thursday and remain there into the start of next week.

Thankfully, all is still quiet in the tropics. We have no active named storms or disturbances in the north Atlantic. Additionally, there are no named storms expected to form within the next five days.
