The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the Peninsula in a Marginal Risk for severe weather, with southern Central Florida and South Florida in a Slight Risk for severe weather today. The threat for severe weather should gradually diminish into the overnight hours.
A cold front currently draped across the Suwannee Valley will continue to push southeastward throughout the day, trailing the showers and thunderstorms as they push through the Peninsula today and tonight. Meanwhile, the Panhandle is forecast to experience dry conditions and clearing skies through the afternoon.
Highs are forecast in the mid 70s across the Panhandle to the mid 80s across South Florida. Lows overnight tonight are forecast to range from the mid 50s across North Florida to the mid 70s in the Florida Keys.
A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast for Panhandle beaches from Walton County to Franklin County today. A low risk of rip currents is expected for all other beaches in Florida today. Rip currents can still occur on low risk days. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
