After a mainly dry weekend, we'll be tracking some changes to the forecast as moisture makes its way across Southwest Florida. This will bring scattered to numerous downpours to the area beginning today.

As a cool front sags across northern Florida, our winds have shifted to the south and southwest allowing deep tropical moisture to surge back into the region. Clouds will continue to thicken throughout the day, so expect scattered to numerous downpours washing in off the Gulf of the Mexico at any time. We'll stay locked in to this soggy pattern through mid week with mostly cloudy skies and heavy rain at times. Due to the clouds and the rain, temperatures will be capped into the middle to upper 80s. With the already saturated grounds and the potential for 2 to 4 inches of rain through Wednesday, localized flooding will be the main concern across parts of Southwest Florida.

Drier air will begin to filter in across the state on Friday as winds turn more out of the north and northeast as high pressure settles in across the Eastern Seaboard. This will set the stage for a sunnier weather pattern for the weekend with highs near 90 degrees.
