Showers will move in this afternoon ahead of cool front

Our stretch of dry weather will come to an end today as a band of rain moves into Southwest Florida this afternoon, signaling the arrival of a cool front that will take a couple days to push all the way through.

A broken band of showers will start moving in from the Gulf by mid-afternoon, and there might also be a few embedded thunderstorms. The good news is this rain will be weakening as it moves in, so we don't anticipate the severe weather threat that areas to our north are experiencing today.

By Thursday we should notice at least some partial clearing as the cool air starts filtering in. Highs Thursday should only reach the mid 70s. Friday will be a few points cooler with highs only climbing into the low 70s.

By the weekend, our weather really starts to get chilly. Highs Saturday and Sunday will likely only reach the 60s, and overnight temperatures will fall into the 40s.
