Current Situation and Weather Update

...Springtime Conditions Return...Sunny Day for Most...Front Moves through Southeastern U.S. ...Slight Rain Chances in Northwest Florida...Many Rivers are Continuing to Flood Across North Florida...Elevated Rip Current Risk for Atlantic Coast Beaches...

Updated 8:15 AM EDT Tuesday

High Pressure has moved eastward and will create a sunny day across the Peninsula and Northeast Florida. In the Panhandle, a cold front is poised to move through and may create a few scattered showers and thunderstorms at a 20 to 30% chance throughout the afternoon and evening hours. Thus, a mostly to partly sunny day is still expected in Northwest Florida. High temperatures will range from the upper 70s to low 80s statewide.

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 throughout the day. The Santa Fe River at Three Rivers Estate is currently in Moderate flood stage and is forecast to reach major flood stage later in the week. In addition, points along the Suwannee, St. Mary’s, Ochlockonee, and Chipola river basins are at or forecast to reach moderate flood stage over the next week. Eight 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.

Tonight expect partly cloudy skies with isolated areas of fog in the Western Peninsula and Panhandle. Low temperatures will range from the upper 50s to low 60s across North and central Florida increasing to the mid to upper 60s in South Florida. Should you encounter dense fog on your early morning commute 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.
