Good Tuesday morning, Southwest Florida!

Highs return to the low 90s and upper 80s under partly cloudy skies.

Dry air from Sunday’s cold front will continue to keep our humidity levels down through Thursday.

That lack of moisture will also restrict our rain chances. We should remain dry across our viewing area until isolated showers return on Thursday.

There is additionally a hurricane and three disturbances we are tracking in the Atlantic. However, we are not concerned with the area of disturbed weather in the North Atlantic because it will likely remain off the coast of the United States.

Hurricane Sam is forecast to fluctuate between Category 3 and Category 4 hurricane status into this weekend. Thankfully, the system should remain out at sea for its lifespan.

Apart from Sam, we also have our eye on twin disturbances off the coast of Africa. Each of these has a high chance of formation.

While it is becoming more apparent that the disturbance to the east will turn out to sea, there is still plenty of confusion with the potential track of the disturbance to the west. Each of these is still very far from Florida and will pose no *immediate* threat to us.
