FORECAST:

Good morning, Southwest Florida! We're starting today off with mostly sunny skies. We'll see scattered storms and showers develop after 1 p.m. and continue into the evening hours. Highs today will remain in the low 90s with overnight lows dipping into the mid-70s.

We'll see a big increase in tropical moisture as Ian moves from the Caribbean and into the Gulf of Mexico as we start the work week. This will lead to widespread storms and cloudy conditions Monday into Tuesday.

Ian is expected to strengthen into a Category 4 hurricane by the time it enters the Gulf. Models have continued to shift westward which is good news for our area. However, Southwest Florida remains on the edge of the forecast cone meaning we could still see impacts from this storm.

Stay with us over the weekend for the latest as currently there is still a high level of uncertainty with this system.
