Developing Warm Front South Of The Keys Will Move North Increasing Rain Chances Through Sunday...Severe Weather Possible Along Florida Panhandle Starting Before Dawn On Sunday...High Risk Of Rip Currents At Florida Beaches...Tropics Remain Quiet...Updated 10:00 AM EST Saturday
Strong High Pressure along the Southeast U.S. Coast will move out into the Atlantic today as a warm front develops south of the Florida Keys and moves northward across the state.
Central & South Florida: Breezy easterly winds will be in place today as a warm front develops and moves northward through the region bringing abundant clouds and increased rain chances. Best chances for rain will be in South Florida and from around the Interstate 4 Corridor northward and across the Nature Coast tonight. A slow drying trend will occur across South Florida tonight trailing the warm front. High temperatures today will be limited by the abundant clouds, but should be able to climb into the lower 70s north to lower 80s south across Central And South Florida. Lows tonight will remain well above normal and only fall into the mid 60s to lower 70s in Central Florida and the low to mid 70s in South Florida.
Northeast Florida: Breezy northeast winds will increase moisture and will lead to a chance of showers developing mainly along the coast this morning, and inland by afternoon. The warm front will enter the region tonight and Sunday. Showers will move south to north tonight, with widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms expected Sunday. A few of the storms Sunday will be capable of producing damaging winds.
Florida Panhandle: Dry weather will persist through mid afternoon, followed by increasing clouds and isolated showers moving inland from the Gulf of Mexico late in the afternoon. The rain will then become widespread tonight into Sunday morning as the warm front approaches the coast. A few severe storms are possible along the coastal counties and offshore, closer to the warm frontal boundary during the pre-dawn hours on Sunday morning. Locally heavy rains may lead to some localized flooding problems over poor drainage and lower lying urban areas. As the front continues to lift to the northeast, there is the potential for a line of severe thunderstorms to advance eastward into the Western Panhandle.Storm motion looks to be around 40 to 45 mph with severe threats likely to happen quickly. Damaging winds, isolated tornadoes, and locally heavy rains are possible with these storms.
There is a high risk of deadly rip currents from Escambia to Franklin County and along the Atlantic Coast beaches. A low threat of rip currents is forecast for the remainder of the state. Beachgoers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and not to enter the surf above your knees. Always Heed the advice of ocean rescue personnel and swim within sight of a lifeguard. For more information on rip currents click here.
