FORECAST:

Changes are heading to Southwest Florida as we head into the weekend. But for now we're dealing with a deep SE-S flow bringing lots of tropical moisture into our area. Scattered showers & storms will develop along the sea breeze fronts & outflow boundaries during the afternoon/evening again on Friday. Keep an eye on flood prone areas since so much rain has fallen the past two days. The ground is saturated. Highs on Friday are expected to reach 90.

Saturday looks quite wet again as a cold front sinks southward from central Florida but just how far south will it get before it washes out, that is the question. In any case, a bit cooler & drier air arrives on Sunday.

TROPICAL UPDATE:

The National Hurricane Center is watching one area for possible development. It is a weak area of low pressure located about off the coast of South Carolina is producing disorganized
showers and thunderstorms. It has been designated as 92L. Strong upper-level winds should limit significant tropical development during the next few days while the low moves northward and then northeastward off the southeastern coast of the United States.

Formation chance through 48 hours is low at 20 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days is low at 30 percent.
