Current Situation and Weather Update

...Warm With Mostly Sunny Conditions Today becoming Partly Cloudy Overnight...Scattered Showers And Thunderstorms forecast in the early afternoon through late evening hours...Some Storms Could Become Strong...Moderate Risk of Rip Currents For Panhandle and Atlantic Coast Beaches...

Updated 9:30 am EDT Sunday

A mix of sun and clouds is forecast statewide today with high temperatures rising into the upper 80s to low 90s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop along the seabreeze in the early afternoon through early evening hours across the state today. Similar to yesterday, east to southeasterly winds will favor higher rain chances in West Central and Southwest Florida as showers and storms are pinned to the coast here. This will increases rain chances slightly in this region at a 30% to 60% chance west of I-75 with a 20% to 30% chance forecast to the east.

In the Panhandle and Suwannee valley, seabreeze showers and storms will also be the main driver for rain today. However, a weakening line of storms in Mississippi traveling eastward is forecast to combine with seabreeze showers early this afternoon when it reaches the Western Panhandle. This system combines with increased moisture will elevate rain chances across the Panhandle to 30% to 50%.

The strongest storms that develop today will have the potential to produce frequent lightning, strong wind gusts, hail, and heavy downpours.

Overnight, showers and storms are forecast to wind down after sunset with showers coming to an end by the late evening hours. Humid conditions under partly cloudy skies will prevail overnight.

Breezy conditions will create a high risk of rip currents for Northeast and Southeast Florida Atlantic beaches as well as in the Florida Panhandle. A moderate risk of rip currents is also forecast at East Central Florida beaches. Elsewhere a low risk of rip currents is forecast. 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.
