Forecast: Cooler days ahead for SWFL

Updated:
FORT MYERS, Fla. -

A much-anticipated cold front is moving across SWFL on Sunday evening and will be to our south overnight. 

Drier and cooler air from the north will filter in tonight and give us some cooler weather to kick off the week. 

Don't expect a massive difference here though. 

Temperatures will be in the upper 60s in parts of Lee, Charlotte, Glades, and DeSoto counties. Most of Collier and Glades counties will only reach the low 70s in the morning. It will be a breezy start to the day with clear skies. The drop in humidity will be noticeable and it will make for some pleasant conditions through the day. Highs will only reach the mid 80s. 

Calming winds will lead to slightly cooler temperatures on Tuesday morning. Lows will dip into the mid 60s in inland areas and upper 60s in coastal Lee and Charlotte counties. Naples and Marco Island will stay around 70. 

By the middle of the week, moisture coming out of Mexico will spread across the Gulf Coast and lead to cloudier and wetter weather. Rain chances in Southwest Florida will stay low until Friday as a storm system develops and moves over North Florida between Friday and Sunday. If you have plans next weekend keep an eye on changes to the forecast. At this time it looks like we'll have a decent chance for rain on Saturday. 

Another cold front will come in behind this wet weather at the end of next weekend, so your first look at the Halloween forecast calls for comfortable temperatures.
