Scattered Showers And Storms Expected Across The State...The Main Threat With The Storms That Do Develop Will Be Frequent Lightning, Gusty Winds, Ponding In Poorly Drained Areas, And Localized Street Flooding...Moderate Risk for Rip Currents Along The Panhandle Beaches......Updated 10:00 AM EDT Sunday
A near stationary front located across the Panhandle extending northward into Coastal South Carolina in combination with a moist atmosphere will allow for seabreeze showers and storms to form across the state. Showers and storms will focus along the frontal boundary across North Florida this afternoon and into the evening hours. Across Central and South Florida, east and west coast seabreezes will form in the late afternoon and push inland combining along the spine of the state before pushing back westward late in the day. This will favor rain chance across the western Peninsula for today. Due to several days of rainy weather across South Florida, flooding concerns could arise again today. In general soils across the state remain moist and isolated flooding concerns could result if stronger storms linger over one area for an extended amount of time. Thus residents are reminded to drive safely on wet roads and to always find an alternate route if a roadway is flooded.
For tonight, a few lingering storms may persist across the Panhandle eastward into the Suwannee River Valley and along the western portions of the Florida Peninsula until the late evening hours. By midnight, most showers should fizzle out over land and remaining storms are forecast to move out over the coastal waters. Lingering moisture near the surface and light winds may allow for patchy fog to form across North Florida and visibilities may drop between 2 to 5 miles in some low lying rural locations. Thus drivers are asked to exercise caution if visibilities briefly drop. Remember to use low-beam headlights and leave plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
Increased wave heights and swells produced by on shore winds and remnants of a tropical disturbance passing south of the Panhandle will elevate the increase the rip current risk to moderate levels across the panhandle today. Elsewhere across the state a general low risk of rip currents is forecast today. However, rip currents may still form near piers and jetties and also during outgoing tidal cycles on low risk days. Thus residents are encouraged to always check beach flags before entering the water. For more infomation on rip currents click here.
For the latest information on the tropics, visit the national hurricane center webpage here. Tropical Storm Edouard continues to turn out in the Atlantic with winds near hurricane strength at 70mph. The storms is forecast to continue to strengthen over the next 48 hours as it moves generally northwestward not impacting any landmasses. Elsewhere in the tropics, remnants of the tropical wave that crossed South Florida on Friday remain diffuse and unorganized. Wind shear is forecast to remain high across the Gulf of Mexico making further development difficult for this system and its development chances low at 0% over the next 5 days. Remnants of this wave are forecast to continue heading west-ward across the Central Gulf over the next couple of days before moving inland over Texas or Mexico early this week.
