1ST WEATHER-WX CENTER


Today's very active and wet weather pattern was enhanced with an area of low pressure above south Florida. This feature will continue to bring more downpours and thunderstorms tonight. Rainfall has been excessive today - over 6" in some Naples neighborhoods at the time of this writing - and I expect more downpours tonight. The rain showers should begin to taper off by midnight, but there could still be more showers washing in from the Gulf overnight and through tomorrow morning.

Temperatures will stay in the mid 70's this evening. It is highly likely that there will be more flooding in some places this evening and travel could be difficult tonight after sunset. Many roads and areas with poor drainage will be under water this evening.

Tomorrow's forecast looks better. We will still be under the threat of morning showers or thunderstorms as southwest winds set in for Tuesday. The afternoon threat for thunderstorms will be mainly inland tomorrow and high temperatures will top out around 90 as the clouds break-up in the afternoon. Return to index of stories...
