FORECAST:

It is going to be another sunny morning for your Thursday across the area although the humidity is here to stay. Temperatures start out in the low to mid 70s and will rise once again into the lower 90s this afternoon. There could be a few isolated showers and storms, but again the highest concentration will be south of the Caloosahatchee river.

Rain chances are in the forecast Friday as well, but expect fewer showers and storms as an upper level low moves away from Southwest Florida. This is good news as mainly dry conditions will prevail just in time for the weekend. Lows this weekend will be warm, in the low to mid 70s with highs in the low 90s.

A weak cold front will move through Sunday morning which could provide a few showers early in the day. It will be less humid with dew points in the 60s Monday and Tuesday, but it won't cool down much heading into next week as highs will rise into the upper 80s to around 90 Monday through Wednesday and lows in the low 70s. It looks like moisture will work its way back into the area Wednesday so expect a few pm showers and storms especially as we head toward the middle of next week.

TROPICAL UPDATE:

NHC is monitoring a tropical disturbance east of the Bahamas for further development but the chances are LOW due to strong upper level wind.
