...Scattered Showers Forecasted in North Florida Today...Partly Sunny to Mostly Sunny in the Peninsula...Temperatures Continue Warm Trend Through First Part of the Work Week...Patchy to Dense Fog Expected For North and Central Florida Tonight... Elevated Rip Current Risks Along Atlantic and Panhandle Coasts of Florida....Updated 8:30 AM EDT Monday
In North Florida today a frontal boundary is approaching the Panhandle stirring up showers out ahead of it. This will increase rain chances for the day to a 50 to 60% chance throughout the Panhandle. Elsewhere, a few spotty showers are possible out ahead of the front in Jacksonville and the Suwannee River Valley at a 20% chance. Temperatures will once again be unseasonably high in the upper 70s and low 80s
The rest of the state is not expected to see rain throughout the day. Mostly sunny to partly sunny skies are forecast after any patchy morning fog in a few places begins to burn off. Temperatures will once again rise into the low to mid 80s in Central and South Florida.
Overnight, a few sporty showers are forecast to persist across the Panhandle; elsewhere patchy overnight fog may form in North and Central Florida. Tonight’s low temperatures will be above normal; in the low 60s in North Florida, mid 60s in Central Florida, and lower 70s across South Florida. Anyone who plans to drive overnight tonight should use extreme caution and should be prepared to slow down or stop when approaching an area of dense fog. Visibilities may reach dangerous levels, around a quarter mile or less, so we encourage everyone to practice safe driving.
Soils have remained moist and relative humidity levels remain elevated. This will generate a low risk of wildfires statewide.
Onshore winds and waves will generate a moderate risk of rip currents for the entire Atlantic Coast beaches today from Nassau County through Miami-Dade County. A moderate risk of rip currents is also in effect from Walton through Franklin counties. The remaining beaches across the sunshine state will enjoy a low risk of rip currents today.
