Drier Air in the Panhandle will keep Rain Chances Low...Out ahead of the Front, Scattered To Numerous Showers And Storms Expected Across the Peninsula...The Main Threat With Storms Will Be Lightning And Isolated Flooding....A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for E. Central FL...Moderate Risk For Rip Currents For some Florida beaches...Updated 9:40 AM EDT Tuesday
Peninsula: A frontal boundary across north-central Florida will push south of the I-4 corridor by late evening. This frontal boundary will be the focus for the heaviest showers and storms this afternoon, however, rain chances remain elevated across northeast Florida and the entire Peninsula where the possibility of scattered showers and storms remains between 40 and 70%. The greatest concern with thunderstorms today will be isolated lightning and the potential for heavy rainfall. A flash flood watch continues for parts of Northeast-Central Florida and East Central Florida into this evening where Isolated flooding will once again be a concern today as grounds remain saturated and additional heavy rainfall will only exacerbate the situation. Localized street flooding and ponding of water will be possible across the entire state today and residents in low-lying flood-prone areas within the flash flood watch should monitor weather conditions throughout the day should flooding result. If you encounter a flooded roadway, always turn around and find and alternate route.
Panhandle: Lingering moisture in the lowest levels of the atmosphere will create a light mist this morning in a few locations across the southeastern Big Bend. In addition, stubborn post-frontal cloud cover is forecast to linger across the Panhandle with a few breaks in cloud cover late in the afternoon, especially in the northwestern Panhandle where drier air has had more time to filter in behind yesterdays frontal passage. Despite the mostly cloudy conditions, rain chances will remain near zero percent and temperatures will be cooler in the mid 80s.
There is a moderate risk of rip currents from Escambia to Franklin County and from Nassua through Martin county. In addition, breezy winds from the lingering front will increase onshore flow across West Central Florida creating a moderate risk of rip currents from Pinellas through Lee County. A general low risk of rip currents for the remainder of the Gulf Coast beaches. However, rip currents may still form near piers and jetties and also during outgoing tidal cycles on low risk days. Thus residents are encouraged to always check beach flags before entering the water. For more information on rip currents click here.
Showers and storms near 97L have diminished and wind shear is increasing, thus the NHC has dropped this systems chances for development to near 0% over the next five days. In addition, there are no other areas of interest in the tropics as dry air and increased wind shear are inhibiting development. The next name on the 2014 list of Atlantic Names is Fay.
