Current Situation and Weather Update

Scattered Showers and Storms Expected Statewide...Strong Storms Possible...Heat Index Values Up to 100-105F Possible...No Tropical Development Expected Over the Next Five Days...

Updated 8:45 AM EDT Monday

Increased moisture combined with hot temperatures and local seabreeze fronts will result in scattered shower and thunderstorm activity statewide. Storm activity could get an early start along the coast, but most of the activity should occur in the afternoon for the rest of the state. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but some storms could contain strong gusts to 60mph, frequent lightning and small hail. Most of the rain should dissipate by midnight, but a slight chance for showers could continue overnight near the coast.

The heat and humidity index will also be a concern as high temperatures reach the upper 80s to mid 90s, producing heat index values in the 95-105 degree range, with the highest values in the Panhandle this afternoon. Tonight, expect partly cloudy skies with mild lows in the 70s. Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year and even more heat-related illnesses. To stay safe from heat related illnesses, limit strenuous outdoor activities, wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, stay hydrated and take frequent breaks in the shade as much as possible. NEVER leave children, persons with disabilities or pets in a car without an adult. Leaving the windows slightly open does not significantly decrease the heating rate. The phrase “Look Before You Lock” could save lives.

A low risk of rip currents is expected statewide. 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.

Tropical cyclone activity is not expected within the next 5 days. For more information from the National Hurricane Center, click here.
