WEATHER-WXWALL


TRACKING SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR

The onshore winds continued on Thursday, with scattered showers and storms developing. This activity may push back into the Urban Corridor later this evening, with temps holding in the 80s. Expect the storms to diminish overnight, with lows in the upper 70s.

Slightly drier air works into the region starting Friday. Winds will shift from the west to the south and east, reducing the threat for morning rain showers. Showers and storms will develop in the PM hours and slowly diminish in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The weekend is still looking fairly decent, with most of both days dry. Showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and early evening, but these will be widely scattered. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Even more dry air works into Southwest Florida to start next week, keeping rain and storm chances low. Only an isolated shower will be possible on Monday, with highs in the mid 90s.

Rain chances do increase as we move through next week, with highs holding in the low to mid 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

With Bertha now history, things are very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the open waters of the Atlantic.

A couple of tropical waves are floating between the Lesser Antilles and Africa, but those will have a difficult time developing.
