Odds for development decrease near Florida East Coast

The National Hurricane Center has lowered the chances of development from 60 percent to 50 percent for an area of low pressure off the Space Coast. Earlier this evening the Hurricane Hunters flew into the system to investigate how well organized it had become. They found that, while it had a well-defined center of circulation, the storm development was still far removed from the center. Over the next few days, this system will continue to battle a large expanse of dry air in the atmosphere. This will create a hostile environment for any type of development which is why the odds were lowered...

Forecast: One more round of rain Wednesday morning

We’ve got one more round of rain in store this Wednesday morning before our weather begins to quiet down and dry out.  We’ll track showers and even some heavier downpours developing throughout the morning, moving from west to east toward our coast.  Expect mainly cloudy skies this morning with off-and-on rain and temperatures staying fairly warm in the upper 70s to lower 80s.  This afternoon, the rain will finally start to push south of our area, allowing for increasing sunshine and temperatures peaking near 85 degrees.  Our reward for our three-day stretch of unsettled...

Forecast: periods of rain and storms Tuesday

We’re on track to see another busy weather day featuring off-and-on rain and storms thanks to a stalled front hanging over Southwest Florida.  The front will act to focus numerous areas of showers and storms at times through the day, and the potential is also there for a few strong storms to develop.  The NBC2 First Alert Storm Team has issued a SEVERE WEATHER FIRST ALERT today due to the potential for a few of these stronger storms.  We’ll start off the early-morning hours with generally quiet weather along the coast with most of the action happening deep inland near...

Forecast: Rounds of rain and storms this week

Make sure you leave with your umbrella today! We’re in store for a pretty major shift in our weather pattern this week as we track a cold front sagging into our area, triggering rounds of rain and storms over the next three days.  This morning we’re monitoring a large band of rain and storms northwest of our area that will slowly drift into Southwest Florida from mid-morning through the afternoon. Some pockets of heavy rain and storms will be possible at times throughout the day, and a few of these storms will be capable of producing lightning as well as gusty winds above...

Forecast: Another warm, humid day with rain for this week

It was a very Florida Saturday; warm, humid, and a little breezy! Your Sunday is going to be very similar with patchy fog this morning, but increasing clouds by the end of the day. High temperatures will again climb into the middle and upper 80s. Rain chances today are very low, but not non-existent, but shouldn’t be cause for concern. Get out and enjoy your Sunday, because rain chances increase for the first part of this week. A cold front remains stalled out to our north, keeping off and on chances for rain in the forecast starting tomorrow morning through Wednesday. No...

How and why is volcano ash different from wildfire ash?

Friday marks one week since the start of the eruption of La Soufrière, a volcano on the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean Sea. Over the course of this past week, ash has been blown more than 5 miles into the air, before raining down on St. Vincent and nearby islands like Barbados. The ash from the volcano is increasingly becoming a humanitarian crisis, as reports place some 20,000 people as being displaced right now. You can learn more about what’s happening on St. Vincent with the ongoing eruptions from NBC News here.     When you see video of the volcano’s ash,...

Forecast: Some patchy morning fog, then mild this afternoon

Southwest Florida’s inland communities will have the opportunity for some fog this morning becoming most dense around the sunrise hour.  Within an hour or two of the sun coming up fog that is able to develop this morning should mix out of the atmosphere and give way to a mostly sunny sky.   Temperatures today will be mild and seasonable, peaking in the mid-80s.   This weekend, a frontal boundary will be stalled to the north of our part of Florida. This will keep the best rain chances north of where we are and keep temperatures warm.  Both Saturday and Sunday will see mid-day...

Drought conditions remain unchanged across SWFL

Each Thursday, NOAA in conjunction with the National Drought Mitigation Center [NDMC] at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and US Department of Agriculture release a report on current drought conditions across the United States.   Despite copious amounts of rainfall from this past weekend’s cold front, this week’s drought report remains unchanged from last week. The lack of change in the drought report this week may come as a surprise to some considering the soaking rains from the weekend. Fort Myers alone picked up over 2 inches of rain, with higher amounts reported...

Forecast: Seasonable this afternoon

Generally, calm weather conditions are expected across Southwest Florida this afternoon. Along with this, we’ll see seasonable temperatures for mid-April peaking in the mid-80s after lunchtime.   Rain opportunities are low to none today, as the nearest rain to us will stay in North Florida. That’s because a front is stalling out in that part of the state meaning we stay under the influence of southeast winds keeping temperatures warm and humidity somewhat noticeable.   Tonight, overnight numbers will fall into the upper 60s leading to some areas of morning fog on Friday. Any...

Forecast: Warm this afternoon

Southwest Florida will continue seeing warmer than average weather for late April today as afternoon highs touch the upper 80s.  Rain opportunities will be low today, again trending less than 20%, as sky conditions range between partly and mostly sunny.  Tonight, overall quiet weather can be expected. Overnight temperatures will fall into the middle 60s under a mostly clear sky.  On Thursday and Friday the breeze is expected to become more noticeable as temperatures continue topping out in the mid and upper 80s. This will extend into the upcoming weekend before...
