...Beautiful, Sunny, And Dry Day Across Much of The State...Chance for Rain In The Florida Keys Today And Tonight...Moderate to High Risk of Rip Currents At Some Panhandle And Atlantic Coast Beaches...Breezy Winds Across the Peninsula Elevate The Fire Weather Threat Today...Updated 9:30 am EDT Sunday
A large area of high pressure over the Eastern U.S. will bring another day of sunny skies and warm temperatures to Florida. Highs are forecast to reach the upper 70s to low 80s in most places with a few warmer inland locations across Central Florida reaching the mid 80s this afternoon. Rain chances will be virtually nonexistent except across the Florida Keys where a lingering band of moisture left behind by a front will allow for showers and storms to occur during the day. For this reason a 40% chance for rain is forecast in the Florida Straits and Keys.
Overnight, rain chances will remain near zero percent across the state with lingering showers forecast in the Florida Keys at a 40% chance. Mostly clear conditions across the Peninsula and Panhandle will allow temperatures to drop into the upper 50s to low 60s north increasing to the lower 70s south.
Relative humidity levels dropping into the low to mid 30s across inland portions of the Peninsula combined with breezy easterly winds will elevate the fire weather threat to moderate levels across the Peninsula today.
Breezy onshore winds, an increasing swell, and an approaching full moon will elevate the rip current risk along the Atlantic coast today producing a moderate risk of rip currents in Northeast Florida and a high risk of rip currents elsewhere along the Atlantic coast. In the Florida Panhandle, wave heights reaching 2 feet this afternoon combined with breezy conditions at the coast will elevate the rip current risk to a moderate risk of rip currents from Bay to Franklin County. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach patrol or beach warning flags for the latest surf conditions before entering the water. Always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
