TAM jalalpeno - what are these yellowing spots

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

My plant in a container plant and we have had some heavy rains the past days. Look close and you can see some spots starting. Still getting peppers and blossoms. Found a few leaves with some powder mildew and scant amount of aphids, did do a milk bath and clipped off the leaves that looked bad, there is no sign of leaves curling or wilting. Are the spots the start of a disease? I did a google search and doesn't really look like the brown spots they show.

Can't say what the yellow area's are, but most of the plant looks pretty good. I think you
did the right thing by plucking off the yellowed leaves. It's nothing I would personally
worry about unless it really started spreading.

Thanks zinniared. It has been doing fine since, still some yellowing, but more than likely the abundant rain we have had, still popping out some nice sized peppers, that aren't as mild as I thought it would be. Which is fine, really. ☺
