FORECAST:

Expect a continuation of typical late summer weather in SWFL with highs near 90 each day and chances for showers and storms. Storm coverage will be a bit lower Thursday through Saturday as a result of strengthening high pressure aloft. Lows at night will drop into the 70s.

Rain chances pick up a bit late weekend into early next week as moisture levels surge across the area and a southeast flow returns. Expect PM storm chances Monday through Wednesday before winds shift back out of the west by late next week keeping most of the storms inland during the afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE:

1. Tropical Storm Mindy will move onshore later tonight in the Florida Panhandle, track across Georgia then move into the Atlantic by Thursday afternoon.

2. Hurricane Larry will continue northward, bypassing Bermuda Thursday then heading toward Newfoundland & Labrador by this weekend, likely as a Cat 1 hurricane or storm of Cat 1 strength.

3. A strong tropical wave will move off the African coast in the coming days with a LOW chance for development.
