Tuesday morning starts with lots of showers across Southwest Florida. As the cold front that is driving all of this rain works its way south, the rain will come to an end during the late morning to midday time frame. Then, through the afternoon hours, cloud cover will slowly be clearing. Afternoon highs will be in the mid 70s. Winds will pick up from the west-northwest at 10-15 mph with higher gusts. Tonight, temperatures will cool into the lower 50s under mostly clear skies.

After the cool start tomorrow morning, highs will only rebound into the lower 70s under mostly sunny skies.
