Your Friday forecast looks great this morning with temps in the upper 70s and generally clear skies.
We’ll track the chance for a few tiny coastal showers through the morning, and more storms will pop up this afternoon.
Storms will build west to east again today, so our inland areas will see the highest rain chances late in the afternoon.
A few isolated storms could still build back toward the coast this evening, so keep an eye on the NBC2 First Alert LIVE Doppler Radar if you’re heading out.
Temperatures will be toasty today with highs on track to reach the low to...
Showers and storms will become more likely through Friday.
As the remnants of Ida moves through the Northeast, a trailing batch of storms will drag south through Central Florida and slowly move through our area for the end of the week. This means more clouds and storm chances for the first few days of September. The good news is the added cloud coverage should keep temperatures just below normal in the mid to upper 80s.
By the holiday weekend, weather should improve and become more seasonable with afternoon storms and highs in the low 90s. By next week, south winds will prevail,...
Tropical Storm Ida now has winds sustained at 60 mph and is on track to rapidly intensify into a major hurricane this weekend in the Gulf of Mexico. Ida is bringing heavy rain, strong winds, and storm surge to Cuba today.
Steered by high pressure, Ida will target Louisiana bringing 8 to 12 inches of rain along the central Gulf Coast with isolated spots receiving up to 15 inches. Hurricane and tropical storm watches have been posted for the central Gulf Coast.
Ida will have a favorable environment for rapid intensification into the weekend due to warm sea surface temperatures.
SWFL is outside...
Grace continues to move towards Mexico as a strong category 1 hurricane.
Grace is expected to gain additional strength on approach to the Yucatan peninsula as it moves over the open waters of the Caribbean over the next 24 hours.
SWFL will not experience any impacts from Grace as the track remains hundreds of miles to our south.
Tropical Storm Henri
A significant shift to the west in the forecast for Henri now includes NYC and Boston by the beginning of next week.
Henri is expected to reach hurricane status by Friday as it moves to the west. From there, a sharp north turn is anticipated...
As of the 11 PM advisory, the remnants of Fred have reemerged over open waters again, north of Cuba.
Over the next 48 hours, this wave is expected to regain some organization as it moves north over the open waters of the Gulf, 300 miles west of SWFL. From there it is forecast to strengthen back into a tropical depression and eventually a storm as it approaches the northern Gulf Coast.
For SWFL, the track of Fred will be far enough west to keep impacts at a minimum.
Dangerous rip currents and a marginal tornado threat will be the biggest threats, although some isolated flooding cannot...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
