Weather Forecast

...Isolated showers possible across Central and South Florida as the remnants of a cold front moves south today...There is a moderate risk of rip currents for parts of the Panhandle, due to a residual swell from yesterday...There is a low fire risk across Central and South Florida due to ongoing drought conditions...Patchy dense fog may redevelop tonight across the Panhandle, North, and Central Florida- especially near the Gulf Coast and in the vicinity of ongoing fires...

Updated 9:00 A.M. EST Sunday

Patchy dense fog will continue to dissipate this morning, leading to mostly sunny skies across nearly all of Florida this afternoon. The remnants of a weak cold front is located across the Peninsula. Isolated showers will be possible through midday across Central Florida, and then South Florida this afternoon. Highs will range from the upper 70s to low 80s statewide.

Tonight, an isolated shower is possible across extreme South Florida and the Keys. Otherwise, skies will be mostly clear across the state. As temperatures drop, fog will likely redevelop across parts of the Panhandle and North and Central Florida. The best chance of seeing visibilities less than a mile will be along the Gulf Coast from Central Florida through the Big Bend. Lows will range from the low 50s across interior portions of the Panhandle and North Florida, to the upper 50s and low 60s elsewhere. Temperatures will likely remain in the upper 60s or low 70s across far South Florida and the Keys.

There is a low fire weather threat across the Peninsula today due to ongoing drought conditions. However, humidity levels are expected to remain above critical levels. Winds across the state will generally be between 5 and 10 mph. Glades and Hendry counties continue to have burn bans in place. Wildfires have been on the increase in Central and South Florida, so practice firs safety in those areas. For fire safety tips, visit www.firewise.org.

A moderate risk for rip currents is forecast for parts of the Panhandle, primarily due to lingering swells at those beaches. A low risk of rip currents is expected at all other Florida beaches 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. If caught in a rip current, do not panic; swim left or right parallel to the shoreline until free from the current, then swim at an angle towards the shore. Remember, “Don’t Fight...Swim Left or Right”.
