Weather Forecast

Isolated to Scattered Showers and Storms Expected Statewide...Heat Index Values Up to 100-105F Possible in North Florida...No Tropical Development Expected Over the Next Five Days...

Updated 12:30 P.M. Tuesday

Expect sunny and hot conditions to continue today in North Florida. Heat index values will reach between 100-105°F in some parts of the Panhandle and Suwannee Valley. Increasing moisture levels will lead to a 30-40% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Central and South Florida have a greater chance of storms with 40-50% in the forecast.

While no severe weather is expected today, some strong storms are possible. The main threats from these storms will be 60 mph winds, small hail, frequent lightning and heavy rain. Most storms will dissipate by midnight, but a slight chance of showers could continue overnight near the coast.

Otherwise, expect mostly to partly cloudy skies statewide. Winds will be light and variable around 5 mph increasing to 5-10 mph in the evening. Temperatures will be in the mid 90s in North Florida, low 90s in Central Florida, and upper 80s in South Florida and the Keys during the day. Temperatures overnight will be in the mid 70s overnight.

Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year and even more heat-related illnesses. To stay safe from heat related illnesses, limit strenuous outdoor activities, wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, stay hydrated and take frequent breaks in the shade as much as possible. NEVER leave children, persons with disabilities or pets in a car without an adult. Leaving the windows slightly open does not significantly decrease the heating rate. The phrase “Look Before You Lock” could save lives.

A low risk of rip currents is expected statewide. 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.

Tropical cyclone activity is not expected within the next 5 days. For more information from the National Hurricane Center, click here.
