Hurricane Sam is expected to hit Category 4, with drier local weather patterns starting this weekend


We made it through Friday, Southwest Florida!

In many places highs will only barely reach the low 90s.

A few isolated coastal storms are possible before noon. In the late afternoon and evening, scattered showers await you in our coastal districts before you head inland.

A cold front will lower our humidity by early next week.

A few chances of rain begin on Sunday before they drop to zero by Monday.

We now have Hurricane Sam in the Atlantic.

Sam is forecast to become a mighty Category 4 hurricane this weekend.

Our latest model predictions suggest this will likely back out to sea before it reaches the United States. However, we will monitor this closely with regard to further forecast changes.

There are also three disruptions that we are keeping an eye on in the Atlantic.

The only fault that could potentially affect southwest Florida is still over 3,000 miles away and has yet to emerge from Africa’s coast. This disturbed weather region has a medium (40%) chance of forming in the next five days.

The next name on our list of names for Storm 2021 is Teresa.
