Severe Weather Forecast: Stormy outlook as Elsa nears Florida
The NBC2 First Alert Hurricane Team has issued a Severe Weather First Alert as Elsa inches closer to Florida.
Though Southwest Florida starts off dry throughout the morning, conditions will begin to deteriorate overnight as Tropical Storm Elsa nears the region. Expect a stormy afternoon with a few rounds of heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning.
Rainfall totals and wind outlooks from Elsa are still very track-dependent as the system still has to interact with Cuba and warm water temperatures today. The system is expected to bring heavy rain, strong winds, and an isolated tornado threat to the area overnight and throughout Tuesday. Coastal areas can expect two to four inches of rain with isolated areas receiving up to four to six inches in total from Elsa.
Be sure to have a way to receive weather alerts. The NBC 2 Hurricane Tracking Team will keep you updated on-air and online.
