...Partly to Mostly Sunny Skies In North And Central Florida...Partly Sunny Skies With Isolated To Scattered Showers And Storms In South Florida...Moderate Rip Current Risk At West Coast Beaches...A Very Powerful Cold Front Makes Its Way Into Florida Tonight...Tropics Are Quiet...Updated 10:00 AM EDT Thursday
South Florida: A cold front will reach Naples to Lake Okeechobee by early afternoon and then will clear the southeast coast by late afternoon. A few showers will push east across South Florida from the Gulf waters throughout the day ahead of the frontal boundary. Showers will be rather brief in duration but still be capable of producing heavy rainfall. Showers should end by early this evening, followed by cooler and drier air in the wake of the front.
High temperatures will stay mild today in the low to mid 80s; however, expect lows to drop down into the low to mid 60s in the wake of the cold front.
North & Central Florida: Expect partly to mostly sunny skies with cooler and drier air to prevail. A north to northwest flow will persist throughout the day, keeping temperatures below normal. Highs today will only reach the low to mid 70s in North Florida and the mid to upper 70s in Central Florida.
Overnight tonight into Saturday morning, a powerful but dry cold front will sweep through North and Central Florida bringing breezy north to northwest winds behind it. A surge of cold air and clear skies will allow temperatures to drop into the low to mid 40s in North Florida and will range from the mid 40s north to upper 50s south in Central Florida. Expect temperatures to be slightly cooler across the interior.
There is a moderate risk of rip currents at West Coast beaches today from Pinellas to Lee County. Weather and ocean conditions will produce a low threat for the remainder of the Florida beaches. 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.
