Isolated Showers and a Few Storms Expected in South Florida Through Tonight...Isolated Showers Possible Along the East Coast and in the Western Panhandle Today...High Risk of Rip Currents for Southeast Florida Beaches Today...Moderate Risk of Rip Currents For All Other East Coast and All Panhandle Beaches...No Tropical Development Expected Over the Next Five Days...Updated 9:15 A.M. EDT Thursday
Patchy fog may be present this morning in some parts of the Panhandle and the Big Bend, but any fog should dissipate by mid-morning. High pressure centered over the Carolinas will continue to keep most of Florida dry today. Breezy easterly winds are expected in South Florida today, bringing in moisture from the Atlantic. As a result, isolated to scattered showers and a few storms are expected in South Florida today. Isolated showers are also possible along the East Coast and in the western Panhandle, but rain chances are near zero elsewhere in Florida. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are otherwise expected statewide today. Highs will be in the lower to mid 80s.
Overnight, expect isolated showers and a storm or two in South Florida, but partly cloudy to mostly clear skies are otherwise expected statewide. Patchy fog may develop early Friday morning in parts of the western Panhandle. Lows will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s in North Florida, in the mid to upper 60s in Central Florida, and in the lower to mid 70s in South Florida.
A low fire weather threat is forecast for the western Panhandle where ERC values are high and soils are dry. There is no fire weather threat in the rest of the state today.
A high risk of rip currents is forecast for East Coast beaches from Palm Beach County south due to breezy onshore winds in the forecast today. A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast for all other East Coast beaches and for all Panhandle beaches. A low risk of rip currents is expected for 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.
No new tropical cyclones are forecast to develop over the next five days. For more information from the National Hurricane Center, click here.
