Numerous To Scattered Showers And Thunderstorms Throughout The State...Moderate Risk Of Rip Currents for Nassau To Martin County Beaches...Invest 97L Has A 90% Chance Of Development Through Next Five Days...Currently Monitoring 97L As It Enters Caribbean Sea Over Next Day Or Two...Updated 8:00 A.M. EDT Monday
An upper level low that is nearly stationary over the Florida Panhandle, along with a surface high pressure system, with plentiful moisture and energy in the atmosphere, will produce numerous to scattered showers and thunderstorms across the state today. A large part of the thunderstorm activity will be focused in South Florida, and some inland areas may see up to an inch of rain today. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also likely for most areas of the Big Bend and Panhandle. While there is no overall severe weather threat, some storms may become severe with the main impacts being frequent lighting, damaging 60+ mph winds, small hail, and heavy downpours.
We are currently monitoring Invest 97L for any possible impacts to Florida in 8-10 days. We will know more on this storm as it enters the Caribbean Sea and develops towards the middle of the week. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies. Winds will be very light around 5 mph in most areas. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s to low 90s today. Overnight, temperatures will be in the upper 60s to low 70s in North Florida, and in the mid to upper 70s for Central and South Florida.
There is a moderate risk of rip currents for east coast beaches from Nassau to Martin counties. There is a low risk of rip currents at all other Florida beaches 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.
Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure located about 1100 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands continue to show signs of organization. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form around mid-week while the low moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph. Interests in the eastern and central Caribbean Sea, including the northern coast of South America, should monitor the progress of this system. Regardless of development, heavy rains and strong gusty winds should spread over the Windward Islands and portions of the southern Lesser Antilles beginning late Tuesday or Wednesday. The system has a 60% (medium) chance of development over the next 48 hours, and a 90% (high) chance of development through the next five days.
