An area of low pressure located a few hundred miles south of Bermuda continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.

High wind shear is expected to limit development potential over the next few days as this disturbance merges with a front.

By late Wednesday or Thursday, the system could become separated from the front, allowing it to possibly develop some subtropical characteristics. Regardless, it would happen away from the United States.

Right now, the National Hurricane Center is giving it a 30% chance of development.

Back in Southwest Florida, cooler and drier air has filtered in behind a cold front. After getting into the 80s this afternoon, temperatures will fall back into in the 60s  tonight with mostly clear skies and low humidity!

If you’re traveling Wednesday or enjoying Thanksgiving Day safely, we’ll see very similar weather with partly cloudy skies, warmer than normal temperatures, and no rain in our local forecast.

Enjoy and stay safe!
