Tropical showers still around today in Southwest Florida

Even though Tropical Storm Isaac continues to move farther away from Southwest Florida, we'll still be on the outer edge of the storm's circulation today, keeping those hit or miss tropical showers around through the day, according to NBC2 meteorologists.

Any shower that moves in will move very swiftly from south to north at a pace of about 40 to 50 mph. A coastal flood advisory is in effect through this afternoon with tide expected to rise 1 foot to 2 feet above average, and we'll also continue to see pretty high surf in the Gulf.

The good news about today is we expect less cloud cover and more sunshine, but our sky will have the potential to go from blue to gray very quickly with the scattered tropical showers around. The extra sunshine should be able to send our temperatures into the upper 80s through the afternoon, NBC2 reports.

Winds won't be quite as strong today, but we'll still notice some gusty breezes, especially along the coast.
