TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR OPEN-CLIP


TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR Return to index of stories...


TRACKING ARTHUR-WX WALL


Keeping watch on Tropical Storm Arthur

The first named tropical storm of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season is located off the east coast of the peninsula. Newly-dubbed Tropical Storm Arthur will not be able to offer a direct impact on our weather in Southwest Florida, however we will continue to feel indirect influences as the storm begins to move northward.

The first of those impacts have resulted in diminishing the coverage and opportunity for widespread rain on our side of the state. Since we are located west of the center of circulation, drier air from the north has been moving southward on our side of the coast. That kept conditions predominately dry and very warm this afternoon.

Through this evening, any rain that is able to come together should remain isolated in nature. Overnight temperatures are expected in the mid to upper 70s.

On Wednesday, Tropical Storm Arthur will be moving north, and that will reorient the winds to hail from the west. This type of setup can work to offer the coastal regions the chance of a morning shower or downpour. Rain on Wednesday morning would again remain isolated in nature, and predominately along the coastline.

As the storm system continues its northward push through the end of the work week, we will experience a push back on the coverage of rain across the region. Most activity would be expected to develop mainly across the inland areas of the state on Thursday and Friday. Temperatures continue to look warm, topping out near 93 degrees on both afternoons.
