Our highly anticipated cold front finally reached Southwest Florida on Sunday bringing dry air with it.

This has had minimal impact on our high temperatures.

However, our low temperatures are well below average and will reach the 70s in some locations.

The drier air behind our front will stick around for the next few days.

After a muggy feel around breakfast time, our humidity will fall into the humid/tolerable range after lunchtime.

This lack of moisture will drop our rain chances to zero until Thursday and Friday.


We have three disturbances and one named storm in the Atlantic. Two disturbances have a high chance of formation within the next five days. There is additionally a disturbance in the Mid Atlantic with a medium (50%) chance of formation that poses no threat to the United States.

Hurricane Sam is now a category 3 hurricane it was downgraded from a category four as the system struggles to reorganize.

Thankfully, Sam is forecast to turn away from the United States as early as Thursday.

There are two disturbances that we are keeping a close eye on behind Sam. Each disturbance has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm this week. It is too early to dive into the details of exactly where these would be heading. At the moment, neither poses any *immediate* threat to Southwest Florida.
