The weather, currently.

Mild weather continues

Although there will be some cloudiness late tonight and a small chance of a light shower, we're in a very dry pattern the rest of the week. Temperatures will fall back down into the 50s overnight. Tomorrow, if there are clouds in the morning they should clear out, leaving us with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. The sunshine continues into Wednesday before it turns cooler for the end of the week. All eyes will continue to watch hurricane Ian. At the present time, it's too early to say whether any of the moisture will eventually reach our area, but it wouldn't happen until next week, if at all.

Hurricane Ian rapidly intensifying as it heads toward Cuba and Florida
Hurricane Ian barrels towards western Cuba. Then, it’s on track to make landfall in Florida, just north of Tampa Bay.

“Hurricane Ian is rapidly intensifying as it barrels towards western Cuba, then later, Florida, just north of Tampa Bay. Cuba is expecting life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds Monday night.

The storm may slow slightly as it tracks through the Gulf of Mexico — however this is not necessarily good news — as a slower storm has the potential to make flooding worse on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Major hurricanes hitting the Tampa Bay region directly, are fairly rare. In fact, only five major hurricanes have tracked within 50 miles of the area since 1851.”
