Scattered Showers Expected Across The State...Highest Coverage in the afternoon/early evening hours...Some Storms May Be Strong To Severe With Frequent Lightning, Gusty Winds, And Heavy Downpours...Moderate to High Risk for Rip Currents at Panhandle and Atlantic Coast Beaches...Heat Indices Between 100 And 105 Across North And South Florida...99L Will Continue To Be Monitored...Updated 9:45 AM EDT Monday
High pressure over the state will allow for a typical summer-time weather pattern to continue across the state. Easterly winds will create more numerous showers and storms along the spine of the state and westward during the late afternoon hours. Rain chances are forecast at 20% to 60% across North Florida, with the greatest chances located in the Suwannee River Valley. Along the Peninsula, rain chances increase from east to west with the east coast at 20% to 30% and the west coast at a 40% and 60% chance for rain. While no severe weather is anticipated frequent lightning, gusty winds, and heavy downpours are a possibility in some of the strongest storms today.
Temperatures will be warm and humid this afternoon, rising into the low to mid 90s. In addition, heat indices will creep above the 100 degree mark for most of the state during the early afternoon hours. If you are planning on being outside for an extended amount of time it is recommended that you hydrate properly and take frequent breaks inside to limit your chances of overheating or experiencing heat exhaustion during the hottest part of the day.
Lingering ocean swells and onshore winds will create a moderate risk of rip currents across Atlantic coast Beaches today. A moderate risk of rip currents is also expected along the Panhandle coast between Escambia and Franklin counties, with a general low risk of rip currents for the remainder of the Gulf Coast. 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 about rip current safety, click here.
A low pressure system located in the Bay of Campeche, designated as invest 99L, will continue to travel west-northwest throughout today and tomorrow across the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Favorable atmospheric conditions and warm waters will create an environment conducive for further development before the low pressure system moves ashore in Mexico by mid-week. Thus the system has a 70% (high) chance for development in the next 5 days. An Air force Hurricane Hunter Aircraft will likely fly into 99L to investigate the system this afternoon. The next name on the Atlantic hurricane season list of names is Dolly. For the latest information, click here.
