A big week ahead in Southwest Florida. Thursday marks one year since Hurricane Ian hit.

We may see scattered afternoon storms that day, and in fact, every day next week, and the humidity will return.

Expect lows in the low-to-mid 70s and highs in the low 90s.

We may dip into the 80s for high temperatures by the end of next week.

The Tropics

Quite an active stretch in the tropics! Ophelia made landfall in North Carolina.

Philippe formed in the eastern Atlantic. It is expected to battle wind shear for much of next week.

And a tropical wave several hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands off the coast of Africa has a medium chance of developing over the next week.

The Weather Authority’s staying on top of all the activity in the Tropics and right here in Southwest Florida with WINK Live Doppler 3x – the area’s most powerful, advanced technology.

“We’ll be closer to these storms, and we’ll be able to see inside them,” said the Weather Authority Chief Meteorologist Matt Devitt.
