Irma Brings Rain and Breezy Conditions

Not as cool with clouds in place by morning

Temperatures to start out the day will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. We don't anticipate flooding concerns with that much rain. Highs will be back in the mid to upper 80s by Friday and the weekend.

Increasing clouds during the day on Monday. More clouds work into the area starting on Tuesday and temperatures will slowly warm towards the upper 70s.

Mostly sunny, pleasant in the afternoon. Our next chance of rain comes next weekend as a cold front moves into the state on Saturday. A clockwise flow of air around the high will keep a northerly wind flow in place.

Maybe a little cooler than yesterday, but still about ideal. Irma is a large and powerful hurricane that will cause a widespread path of destruction as the storm travels along the Florida West Coast Sunday into Monday.

As Irma moves closer to our region, we will see more rain showers and we will stay mostly cloudy. Irma will then move parallel or along the Florida western coast, before curving a bit inland near Tampa or further north throughout Sunday afternoon and evening.

Besides widespread damage from the hurricane force winds, storm surge will be a very unsafe problem on the Gulf side with storm surge from 10 to 15 feet.

The National Weather Service said Sunday that what is left of Irma should be centered over Memphis by 2 a.m. Wednesday as a tropical depression, carrying winds of 39 miles per hour or less. While the weakening is temporarily encouraging, Irma is expected to again strengthen over the very warm waters north of Cuba and south and west of Florida as it makes a turn to the northwest and eventually due north towards the Florida peninsula. Is still expected to impact the Florida Keys and now southwestern Florida. Irma is a powerful category 4 hurricane.
