If Elsa isn’t headed towards northwest Florida, where is all this rain coming from?

| Kaitie Meyer

It’s raining, it’s pouring, and it’s not expected to stop anytime soon in Northwest Florida. Tropical Storm Elsa is forecasted to move near or along the western Florida Peninsula, but what about the Florida Panhandle? Why is it raining so much?

National Weather Service meteorologist Don Shepherd says the explanation is a combination of the Gulf moisture Elsa is bringing to our area, in addition to lingering storms caused by a trough, or an elongated area of relatively low pressure.
