A Low Pressure System Will Lead To Mostly Cloudy Skies And Elevated Rain Chances Today Across The Panhandle...A Pleasant And Sunny Day Is Expected Across The Peninsula...Overnight, Isolated Patchy Fog Could Develop In Low-lying Rural Areas Across The State...There Is A Low To Moderate Risk Of Rip Currents Along Some Panhandle Beaches...Updated 9:30 AM EST Tuesday December 19, 2014
Panhandle: A low pressure system and a warm frontal boundary across the Northeast Gulf will produce a few periods of rain today and tonight. The best chances for rainfall will be west of the Apalachicola River, where rainfall totals are estimated to be between .10 and .75 inches. Atmospheric conditions are not favorable for severe weather today, and thunderstorm activity will remain low to none, with the best chances for a thunderstorm across the Western Panhandle. Clouds and rain will also hold temperatures down today, with highs ranging from the mid 50s west to the mid 60s east across the Panhandle. Overnight, mostly cloudy skies will keep temperatures from dropping significantly, with overnights lows ranging from the mid to upper 40s across the Panhandle.
Peninsula: High pressure across the Peninsula will provide sunny and dry conditions today. High temperatures will range from the mid to upper 60s across Northeast Florida, increasing to the low to mid 70s across Central and South Florida.
Overnight, partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail. Temperatures are forecast to drop down into the mid to upper 40s across Northeast Florida, and range from the mid to upper 50s across Central and South Florida, with slightly cooler temperatures forecast across the interior and slightly warmer temperatures along the coast. Some patchy fog is possible across the interior, but widespread fog and visibility restrictions are not anticipated.
Easterly winds will favor a low to moderate risk of rip currents along the Panhandle beaches from Walton to Franklin County. Elsewhere a general low risk of rip currents is forecast. Beach goers 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.
