Current Situation and Weather Update

Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms are Forecast for Most of the State Today... Coastal Flood Advisories are in Effect for Northeast Florida and Southeast Florida... High Rip Current Risk for East Florida Beaches... Moderate Rip Current Risk for Southeast Florida Beaches...

Updated 10:00am EDT Friday

Any fog still lingering over North Florida early this morning should continue to dissipate and be gone by around 11AM or so. Winds will begin to swing around to westerly ahead of a cold front currently situated along a line from Ohio to Texas today, which will help to bring in some moisture from the Gulf of Mexico across the Eastern Panhandle and Big Bend. This will allow the potential for some showers and/or thunderstorms to reenter the forecast in these areas this afternoon. Scattered showers and/or thunderstorms are expected across the Peninsula once again today. Some of these showers and storms may linger into tonight, with intermittent showers possible overnight.

Mostly sunny skies again today will allow high temperatures to once again climb into the mid to upper 80s statewide, with heat indices ranging from the upper 80s to the mid 90s.

Other than rivers in Northeast Florida, all other rivers and streams are no longer in flood stage, and only one remains in action stage and is currently falling. Locations along the St. Johns River in Northeast Florida may continue to flood at and near high tide as onshore winds and high astronomical tides continue to cause water to back up into the river mouth.

Coastal Flood Advisories remain in effect today for portions of Northeast Florida and Southeast Florida due to possible coastal flooding during high tide.

The latest river gage readings and river forecasts are available at the Southeast River Forecast Center’s website here.

A high risk of rip currents is forecast at Atlantic Coast beaches from Nassau County to Martin County. A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast for Southeast Florida beaches from Palm Beach County to Miami-Dade County. A low risk of rip currents is forecast for the rest of the state. Rip currents can still occur on low risk days. 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. For more information on rip currents click here.

Tropics: There are a few tropical waves in the Atlantic basin, but none of these waves are forecast to develop, and no tropical cyclone development is expected over the next five days. For more information on the tropics please visit the National Hurricane Center website here.

I would like to thank the team from Northeast Florida for their quick deployment and their work to aid their fellow Americans. We will continue to monitor the situation in South Carolina as we stand ready to ensure South Carolinians can rapidly respond and recover.”

Florida Division of Emergency Management Director, Bryan W.
