Tuesday - Showers & T'Storms

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

It's an active morning on VIPIR 7 Doppler Radar, especially to our west. But before sunrise most of NWFL will remain dry. We'll see these storms move in from west to east during the end of the morning drive. So rain gear up as it looks like we'll be battling an off and on rain through much of the day.

Some of the thunderstorms that do develop along this cold front moving in could be on the strong side. It's a very low end chance that we see a severe thunderstorm this afternoon. But if one were to develop, the speed of the winds aloft and enough turning of the winds with height over NWFL exists that a weak tornado cannot be ruled out.

We are a bit more mild out the door this morning however with upper 50s inland and low 60s down along the coast. Temps will slowly climb to the low 70s around midday ahead of the cold front. But we'll be cooling off once it passes your neighborhood, and most will head toward sunset falling through the 60s. Colder air is on the way for the rest of this week.

After a month of above average temperatures in February, we'll see below average temperatures to finish out the work week. In fact, highs by Friday may struggle to get out of the low 60s!

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly cloudy skies with showers and thunderstorms likely.
Highs today will push the low 70s. Your VIPIR 7 Day Forecast clears out for the rest of the work week but cools off to below average temperatures where afternoon highs stay in the 60s.
