...Warm With Mostly Sunny Conditions Today becoming Partly Cloudy In the Panhandle and Western Peninsula...Scattered Showers And Thunderstorms forecast in the Panhandle and Western Peninsula...Some Storms Could Become Strong to Severe as a marginal Risk for Severe Weather is forecast for Portions of the Panhandle...High Risk of Rip Currents For Panhandle and Atlantic Coast Beaches...Updated 9:30 am EDT Tuesday
A line of showers and storms, currently in Alabama , is approaching the Western Panhandle. This system is forecast to weaken as it moves eastward into the Florida Panhandle during the mid-morning hours. Remnants of this squall line are forecast to combine with seabreeze showers and storms early this afternoon to create widespread rain chances between 50% to 70% across Northwest Florida. There is also a marginal risk for severe weather mainly west of the Apalachicola River as some storms may have the potential to become strong to severe. Straight line wind gusts will be the primary threat with today’s storms. However, isolated inland locations in the Western Florida Panhandle could receive up to 2 inches and this could be enough to cause flooding on low lying roads and urban areas.
In the Peninsula, strong easterly winds will push the seabreeze quickly to the west coast pinning showers and storms in the late afternoon west of I-75 corridor where rain chances are greater for today in the 30% to 50% range.
Showers and storms across the state are forecast to wind-down shortly after sunset with most showers coming to an end late tonight. A few lingering showers may linger overnight in the Panhandle as a 30% to 40% chance for rain is forecast. In addition, increased moisture and light winds may allow for patchy fog to form across Northwest Florida tonight.
Breezy conditions will create a high risk of rip currents from Volusia County southward along the Atlantic coast as well as in the Florida Panhandle. A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast at Northeast Florida beaches. Elsewhere a low risk of rip currents is forecast. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach patrol or beach warning flags for the latest surf conditions before entering the water. Always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
