Weather Forecast

...Springtime Conditions Return...Sunny Day for Florida...Many Rivers are Continuing to Flood Across North Florida...Elevated Rip Current Risk for Atlantic Coast Beaches...

Updated 8:30 AM EDT Monday

A sunny day is in store across Florida as high pressure moves into the sunshine state bringing a stretch of sunny spring days. Expect mostly sunny conditions statewide today with high temperatures in the upper 70s in North Florida and lower 80s across the Peninsula.

Recent rains across North Florida have caused several rivers to head into flood stage. Currently the Choctawhatchee River near Bruce-Ebro is at major flood stage and is forecast to continue to rise through Wednesday. The Santa Fe River at Three Rivers Estate is forecast to reach major flood stage later in the week. In addition, points along the Ochlockonee, St. Marks, and Chipola river basins are at or forecast to reach moderate flood stage over the next week. Seven other rivers across North Florida are forecast to crest at minor flood stage and several other area rivers remain in action stage. For more details on rivers specific to your area please visit the Southeast River Forecast Center Webpage.

Overnight, partly cloudy conditions are forecast with low temperatures in the low to mid 50s across North Florida, low to mid 60s across Central Florida, and mid to upper 60s across the Southern Peninsula. There is a slight chance for patchy fog to form along inland areas across the Northern Peninsula during the early morning hours tomorrow. Should you encounter dense fog 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 high risk of rip currents in Palm Beach County and a moderate risk of rip currents elsewhere along the Atlantic coast. In addition,a moderate risk of rip currents exists across the Panhandle coast from Walton through Franklin County. 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.
