...Springtime Conditions Return...Sunny Day in Store...Isolated Areas of Fog Tonight...Many Rivers are Continuing to Flood Across North Florida...Elevated Rip Current Risk for Atlantic Coast Beaches...Updated 8:15 AM EDT Wednesday
High Pressure sitting over the Gulf of Mexico will provide another sunny and warm day for Florida. Once the early morning fog and low clouds lift sunny conditions will return and temperatures will rise into the low to mid 80s for today. A few spots along the coast may only reach the upper 70s due to the seabreeze.
Recent rains across North Florida have caused several rivers to head into flood stage. Rivers in the Panhandle and Big Bend have crested or are very near their crest and are starting to slowly fall. However, the Suwannee and Santa Fe River basins are much slower to respond and continue to rise. Currently the Santa Fe River at Three Rivers Estate is in moderate flood stage and is forecast to reach major flood stage on Thursday and continue to rise through early next week. In addition, several points along the Suwannee River will continue to rise and are forecast to reach minor and moderate flood stage. A few locations near White Springs and Suwannee Springs along the upper Suwannee River are forecast to crest over the weekend. For more details on rivers specific to your area please visit the Southeast River Forecast Center Webpage.
Tonight expect mostly clear skies with isolated areas of fog in the Western Peninsula, North Central Florida, and the Panhandle. Low temperatures will range from the low 60s across North Florida increasing to the mid to upper 60s in Central and South Florida. Should you encounter dense fog on your early morning commute be sure to use your low beam headlights and leave plenty of space between you and the car in front of you.
At the coast, winds and waves will generate a moderate risk of rip currents along the Atlantic coast. Dangerous rip currents can still occur on low risk days near piers and jetties, especially during low tide. For more information about rip current safety, click here.
