A Low Pressure System Will Lead To Mostly Cloudy Skies And Elevated Rain Chances Today Across The Panhandle And Northeast Florida...A Pleasant And Sunny Day Is Expected Across Central And South Florida...Overnight, Light Rain Can Be Expected Across North Florida...Patchy Ground Fog Is Forecast Across The Interior Of the Peninsula...There Is A Moderate Risk Of Rip Currents Along Some Panhandle Beaches...Updated 9:00 AM EST Saturday December 20, 2014
North Florida: Early morning showers and light rainfall will continue to drift northeast and will start clearing in the afternoon as the low pressure area over the northern Gulf of Mexico weakens. High temperatures are forecast to range from the upper 50s west to the mid 60s east across North Florida.
Overnight, the weak area of low pressure will slowly meander into the northeast Gulf waters, gradually spreading rain inland through the night. Rain will be light and most likely along the Panhandle and the eastern counties in Northeast Florida. Low temperatures are forecast to reach the low to mid 50s, with some areas across the interior seeing cooler temperatures, and coastal areas seeing warmer temperatures.
Central & South Florida: High pressure will provide another day of sunny and dry conditions, with high temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
Overnight, partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail. Temperatures are forecast to drop down into the upper 50s and lower 60s across Central and South Florida, with slightly cooler temperatures forecast across the interior and slightly warmer temperatures along the coast. In addition, an increase in moisture and light winds will allow some patchy fog to form across the interior, but widespread fog and visibility restrictions are not anticipated.
An easterly flow along the Panhandle coast this afternoon will increase the longshore current, heightening the chance for rip currents to a moderate level. Elsewhere a general low risk of rip currents is forecast. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and not to enter the surf above your knees. Always Heed the advice of ocean rescue personnel and swim within sight of a lifeguard. For more information on rip currents click here.
