Cooler with low humidity Wednesday morning; tropics are quiet

Southwest Florida got to enjoy a day of lower than average humidity Tuesday — just in time for the first day of Fall! We’ll get to enjoy one more day of dry, less humid conditions before rain chances and humidity ramps up for the second half of the week.

Wednesday will bring another day of dewpoints in the 60s and no rain. Winds will lighten up Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, which should allow for more of our inland zones to drop into the 60s by Wednesday morning! Highs will top off in the upper 80s to near 90.

By Thursday, moisture will begin increasing from the south. This will allow for humidity to ramp up and isolated storms to return to the forecast, especially for the southern half the Wink News viewing area Thursday afternoon.

By Friday, look for an even higher chance for storms. Scattered storms will be on tap each day from Friday into the weekend as we return to a more typical rainy season pattern. We knew this dry weather couldn’t last for too long!

The tropics are currently quiet. Teddy, Paulette, and Beta have all lost their tropical characteristics as of 11pm Tuesday, making them now “post-tropical” systems. Remember, although we are now past the peak of hurricane season, late September and early October is still statistically an active time in the tropics, so it’s important to keep checking back for updates!
