The WINK News Weather Authority keeps Southwest Florida up to date with its hourly weather forecast, seven days a week.

Though the fog from last night cleared up by Wednesday morning, there are early afternoon scattered rain showers ahead that WINK News Meteorologist Zach Maloch is tracking, which may affect your Thursday morning commute.

Some isolated parts of Southwest Florida experienced some early morning fog.

Fortunately, this trend did not last long, as wind trends pushed the fog from the northwest to the southeast.

According to the National Weather Service, motorists were advised to drive with caution Wednesday morning as visibility widely varied over short distances. In such conditions, drivers are advised to use low-beam headlights and leave extra distance between their vehicle and others and allow extra time to travel to destinations.

The fog should cleared by 9 a.m., Wednesday.

Here’s what to expect for the next three days:

Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy morning with patchy fog moving inland. We’ll see a mainly dry day ahead with more clouds than sun. Highs in the low to mid-70s. 

Thursday:  Scattered showers will be moving through our area from the morning commute through the early afternoon. The bulk of the rain moves out in the afternoon, but we could see a few additional showers in the overnight hours as the actual cold front arrives. We could see 0.25-0.5 inches of rain and highs in the mid-60s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy start to the day with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. We’ll see a drier day with clouds slowly moving out through the afternoon. Winds will be breezy and from the NW at 10 to 20 mph. Highs in the mid to upper 60s. 

You can catch Zach’s weather forecast every weekday on WINK News This Morning from 4:30 to 8 a.m.
