A quick turnaround is in store today across Southwest Florida as a chilly morning turns into a rather mild and cloudy afternoon.

After starting out in the upper 40s this morning, we'll be on track to warm well into the 70s by the afternoon, and that's even without much in the way of sunshine.

The culprit for today's cloudy weather is some deep tropical moisture that's getting steered our way thanks to a change in our steering winds (becoming more southerly).

We'll even have some rain to track today but probably not until the late afternoon and evening. So, if you're heading outdoors tonight, plan of bringing the umbrella because we'll likely have some showers spreading into Southwest Florida, which will probably linger into the pre-dawn hours Sunday. The most widespread rain will be over Collier County, but we'll even have some showers building up into Lee and Charlotte County as well.

After the rain moves out Sunday morning, we should even manage to see some sunshine Sunday afternoon before our next storm system--a cold front--arrives by Sunday night into Monday morning.

This next front will bring in a little rain Monday morning, and then we'll see some of the coldest air of the season pour in behind it.
