Current Situation and Weather Update

Isolated to Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms Forecast for Most of the State Today...Mostly to Partly Sunny Skies Otherwise Expected...Moderate Risk of Rip Currents for the Panhandle and East Central Florida...

Updated 10:05 AM EDT Monday

The cold front in the south central U.S. continues its slow approach toward Florida, and additional moisture is moving into the state ahead of it. In Northwest Florida, scattered showers and storms are expected to move into the region this afternoon and evening as the aforementioned cold front moves closer to the area. One or two strong to marginally severe storms with gusty winds cannot be ruled out there. Isolated afternoon showers and storms are possible elsewhere across the state today. The best chances are along interior portions of the Peninsula and inland portions of the eastern half of the Panhandle. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy to partly sunny skies in North Florida and mostly sunny skies elsewhere. High temperatures today will range from the lower to mid 80s along the coast, to the mid to upper 80s inland. With summer-like temperatures beginning to creep into the forecast, please remember to stay hydrated and wear light, loose-fitting clothing when working outside. Seek immediate medical attention if a heat-related illness is suspected.

Tonight, expect scattered showers and storms to continue in Northwest Florida as the front moves even closer to the region. Activity elsewhere in Florida is expected to dissipate by midnight. Otherwise, mostly cloudy skies are expected statewide. Lows will be in the upper 60s to low 70s in North and Central Florida, and in the mid to upper 70s in South Florida.

A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast today for Panhandle beaches from Escambia County to Franklin County and for East Coast beaches from Volusia County to Miami-Dade County. A low risk of rip currents is expected for all other beaches in Florida today. Rip currents can still occur on low risk days. Beach goers are urged to check with local beach rescue for the latest surf conditions and to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
