Higher rain chances Thursday morning, Tropical Storm Odette forms

Happy Thursday, Southwest Florida!

Rain chances will begin earlier than on Wednesday. This will keep most of us in the 80s for high temperatures.

Spotty showers will be possible along the coastline before lunchtime.

Those rain chances will increase and move inland into the evening.

Daily scattered showers and thunderstorms will stick with us into the weekend and upcoming work week.

We have three disturbances in the Atlantic at the moment.

We have one area of disturbed weather with a low (30%) chance of forming over the next five days. To that system’s west, there is a disturbance with a high (80%) chance of forming within the next five days. Early model guidance indicates that this system will likely become a tropical storm or depression soon. Both of these disturbances are very far away from the Florida coastline and will be something to keep tabs on into next week.

Tropical Storm Odette has formed off the mid-Atlantic states.  This poses no threat to Florida and the eastern seaboard as it moves to the north and east, away from land.
