Our wet pattern will stick with us for a couple more days as a cold front sags southward across the state. But don't look for much relief in the temperature dept.
A few evening showers will end turning to partly cloudy skies & temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. We stay stormy in the afternoon over the next two days with at least a 40-50% chance of showers and storms before slightly drier air moves into Southwest Florida.
The cold front is expected to moved through our area by early next week leaving behind a beautiful pattern. Rain chances will be much lower with the drier air, overnight lows should drop to the lower 70s.
The National Hurricane Center has named Tropical Storm Sam, located about 2000 miles east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands. It is moving west with favorable conditions ahead of it. Strengthening is forecast & it should become a hurricane tomorrow.
They have issued their final advisories on the remnants of Peter and Post-Tropical Rose.
Another area is being monitored for possible development which is a non-tropical low pressure system, the remnants of Odette, which is located about 600 miles west-northwest of the westernmost Azores. Showers and thunderstorms have increased a little near the low, and it could become a subtropical or tropical cyclone while it moves generally southward over marginally warmer waters during the next couple of days. Strong upper-level winds are expected to develop over the system this weekend, which should limit its development.
Tropical or subtropical development is also possible along a trough located a few hundred miles southeast of Bermuda but byy this weekend, winds should prohibit development.
