Afternoon storms expected to continue across Southwest Florida through early week

Our weather changes very little early in the workweek, with more daily storms. On Tuesday, a cold front will approach from the north. Ahead of it, scattered showers & storms will break out across the region. The front will arrive sometime on Wednesday. Behind the front, cooler & drier air will filter into Florida.

Tropical moisture remains abundant through mid-week, which will allow scattered showers and thunderstorms to remain in the forecast through Wednesday.

However, the front is expected to stall just south of the area, and any small deviations of where the front stalls will mean the difference between gorgeous Fall weather, or a very wet ending of the week. Stay tuned to the forecast, as the second half of the week is extremely low confidence.

Meanwhile in the tropics, a broad area of low pressure could form over the western Caribbean Sea within the next 5 days. Some slow development is possible late this week while the system moves slowly west-northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean. The National Hurricane Center has given it a 20% of development over the next 5 days.
