...Mostly to Partly Sunny Skies Across North and Central Florida...Increased Rain chances for the Florida Keys and Southern Peninsula...Moderate Risk for Rip Currents Along east-central Florida Beaches...Medium Chance for Tropical Development in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico...Updated 10:00 AM EDT Tuesday
An upper level disturbance in the Carolinas is sending plenty of dry air southward into North Florida and this will decrease rain chances significantly for the Panhandle and the Northern Peninsula.
Across South Florida, rain chances will be on the rise as moisture out of the Bay of Campeche surges northward into the southern peninsula. Rain chances are forecast at 30 to 40% near lake Okeechobee and slightly northward, while south of Lake Okeechobee rain chances increase to 60%. No severe weather is forecast today, however; some strong storms could produce frequent lightning and heavy downpours that could result in isolated flooding
Overnight, dry and cool conditions will persist across north Florida. In Central Florida slightly increased cloud cover will keep temperatures a little warmer overnight in the upper 60s to low 70s. Across South Florida, light showers may persist overnight especially across the Florida Keys where the greatest moisture remains. Calm winds and increased moisture in the lowest levels of the atmosphere may allow patchy ground fog to form across North and Central Florida during the early morning hours, however, no visibility concerns are expected at this time.
Onshore winds will create a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents From Volusia through Martin County.Elsewhere, a general low risk of rip currents is forecast. Heed the advice of ocean rescue personnel and only enter the surf near a lifeguard. There will be a low risk of rip currents for the rest of the Atlantic and Gulf Coast beaches.

A non-tropical low pressure system in the far eastern Atlantic is producing strong gusty winds near 45 mph. Wind shear near this system is forecast to increase and will limit development chances after Thursday. The NHC has placed 92L chances for development at 10% over the next 5 days.
Elsewhere in the Atlantic, 93L, an area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche will continue to move slowly eastward reaching the western Yucatan Peninsula within the next 36 to 48 hours. Later in the week, 93L may merge with a frontal system in the northwestern Caribbean sea. Intensity forecast for 93L, keep the system weak due to increased wind shear and land interaction and the NHC has placed 93L development chances at 50% in the next 5 days. Interests in South Florida should continue to monitor the progress of 93L as heavy rains are forecast to occur on Thursday and Friday and isolated flooding may result. The next name on the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane list of names is Hanna. For more information on the tropics click here.
