Forecast: Strong storms for Sunday

The NBC2 First Alert Storm Team has issued a Severe Weather First Alert. This means we are tracking the potential for storms to have a significant impact today.

This morning as you wake up, we’re warm and muggy, but fairly calm. Once the sun rises it’s going to quickly heat up the atmosphere, and that will provide energy for our thunderstorms as they approach this afternoon.

Another thunderstorm complex is developing to our north, this one associated with a cold front that is working south. As the front slides south, the storms will continue to develop on that boundary and push our way. You should be able to get outside before lunch, but these storms will arrive by early afternoon. The most likely arrival time is in the 1-3 p.m. time frame, but yesterday’s complex arrived earlier than expected, so we can assume the same is possible today.

Once the storms arrive, expect heavy rain which has the potential to produce isolated flash flooding, and strong winds. Gusty winds in excess of 50 miles per hour will be the main threat today, with the flooding secondary. Small hail and brief tornadoes or waterspouts are also possible, but those threats remain on the lower end of the spectrum. Unfortunately, we will have rounds of storms that will linger through the evening and into tonight. 

Monday morning will come with cloudy skies as the storm system pulls away from Southwest Florida, but gradual clearing is expected, with enough sunshine for temperatures to climb quickly into the upper 80s. The rest of the week will come with warm temperatures (up to near 90) and passing chances for rain.
