An abundance of tropical moisture continues to flow in across Southwest Florida keeping the local weather pattern quite soggy over the next couple of days. Many places Monday received 2 inches or more in the rain gauge, and with more on the way. A flood watch has been issued through Wednesday evening for Lee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties.
Cloudy skies will once again kick off our Tuesday morning with temperatures in the middle to upper 70s. With a cool front to the north and a humid flow coming in off the Gulf of Mexico, downpours will be possible not only during the morning hours but through the afternoon, as well. The rain shouldn't be an all-day event, but plan on dodging some heavy downpours from time to time which could produce some localized flooding. Due to the clouds and rain, daytime highs will remain in the middle 80s.
This evening, expect the scattered downpours to continue with overnight lows in the middle to upper 70s. Our extra-wet pattern will stay in place through Wednesday.
