Isolated to Scattered Showers and Storms Expected Statewide Today...Weak Cold Front Focus for Activity in North and Central Florida...Primarily Afternoon Sea Breeze Activity in South Florida...Moderate Risk of Rip Currents for Some East Coast Beaches...Invest 97L Near Barbados This Morning, Has a 90% Chance of Development and Will Likely Become a Tropical Depression or Storm...Updated 9:55 A.M. EDT Wednesday
A weak cold front stretches from northeastern Georgia to southern Alabama this morning, moving very slowly to the east. Ahead of the front, sufficient moisture will allow for isolated to scattered showers and storms to develop in North and Central Florida today. In South Florida, driven primarily by the sea breezes, isolated to scattered showers and storms are expected to develop beginning in the afternoon and into the evening and diminishing with the loss of daytime heating in the late evening. West and southwest winds throughout the state will provide a generally west-to-east shower and storm motion today. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies statewide today. Overnight, chances for showers and a few storms remain elevated near and east of the cold front as it slowly pushes east. Mostly cloudy skies are expected in the Peninsula, and mostly clear skies are expected in the Panhandle behind the front.
Highs today will be in the upper 80s to near 90 statewide. Overnight lows will range from the upper 60s to the lower 70s in North Florida to the lower to mid 70s in Central and South Florida.
There is a moderate risk of rip currents for central East Coast beaches from Volusia County to Martin County. There is a low risk of rip currents at all other Florida beaches today. Rip currents can still occur on low risk days. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
At 8am EDT, Invest 97L was located near Barbados and was moving west-northwest at 15 mph. It is producing tropical storm force winds, but it still lacks a well-defined surface circulation center. A Hurricane Hunter reconnaissance aircraft is currently investigating the system to determine if it now has a well-defined circulation center. 97L has a 90% (high) chance of development over the next 48 hours and a 90% (high) chance over the next five days. It is expected to move over the Lesser Antilles today and move into the southeastern Caribbean Sea tonight and tomorrow. Any possible impacts to Florida from this system are at least a few days away. A disorganized area of showers and storms near Mexico has a 10% (low) chance of development before it is forecast to move inland tonight.
