More storms for Southwest Florida as the tropics come alive

Happy Tuesday, Southwest Florida! Just like yesterday, you may want to have the umbrella handy throughout this afternoon and evening.

This rain is nothing abnormal for this time of year as rainy season is in full swing. And due to our lack of it, many across our area are seeing much-needed water.

Due to a persistent Gulf breeze and potential tropical activity hundreds of miles away, boaters will likely experience elevated wave heights over the next five days.

Speaking of tropical activity, the Weather Authority continues to monitor an area of interest in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The two other areas to watch are no more.

This will not have any direct impacts to Southwest Florida and will be named Claudette if development occurs.
