Current Situation and Weather Update

Isolated to Scattered Showers Possible in the Western Panhandle, Extreme South Florida and the Keys Through Tomorrow Morning...Dry Conditions Elsewhere, Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies Otherwise Statewide...High Risk of Rip Currents for Southeast Florida Beaches...Moderate Risk of Rip Currents for All Panhandle and All Other East Coast Beaches Today...Moderate Fire Weather Threat Continues in the Panhandle and the Big Bend Today...

Updated 8:50 A.M. EST Saturday

Nearly all of Florida should see dry conditions today, although skies will be partly to mostly cloudy throughout the day. Some scattered showers are moving across the western Panhandle this morning, but because of dry air at the surface, rainfall may not be reaching the ground. Moisture at the surface is expected to gradually increase throughout the day, leading to better chances for rainfall in the western Panhandle beginning later this morning. Some light showers may affect the Keys and extreme South Florida today as well. Winds will be breezy today along the East Coast, occasionally gusting to 25 mph. Highs will be in the upper 60s to lower 80s north to south.

Conditions will be similar overnight as partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected statewide and with better chance for rainfall. Isolated to scattered showers are expected across the Panhandle, light showers remain possible over the Keys, and dry conditions are expected elsewhere. Lows will be in the lower to mid 50s in North Florida, in the upper 50s to mid 60s in Central Florida, and in the upper 60s to lower 70s in South Florida.

A moderate fire weather threat is forecast for the Panhandle and the Big Bend today due to ongoing drought conditions and relative humidity near critical levels. There is a low fire weather threat for the rest of North Florida and Central Florida today due to low relative humidity. Gilchrist County has a burn ban in place.

Breezy northeasterly winds will cause elevated rip current risks and rough surf at many beaches today. A high risk of rip currents is forecast for Southeast Florida beaches. A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast all Panhandle beaches and for all other East Coast beaches. There is a low risk of rip currents at all other beaches in Florida today. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
