Florida State Watch Office Morning Situation Report

EOC Activation Level: Level 2
Meteorological Summary:
  • Areas of patchy fog have developed this morning across portions of the Panhandle and Big Bend, and conditions will continue to dissipate and lift through the morning hours.
  • Breezy wind gusts of 20-25 mph will develop throughout the day across North Florida ahead of an approaching cold front, with stronger wind gusts of 30-35 mph at times along the western Panhandle.
  • Isolated to widely scattered showers, and an isolated thunderstorm or two, will develop along the frontal boundary later this afternoon and evening as it moves along the I-10 corridor (15-25% chance of rain).
  • Isolated areas across Northeast and East-Central Florida along the I-95 corridor may see relative humidity values fall near critical thresholds at times this afternoon (upper 30% to low 40%), and recent and ongoing dry conditions may allow for locally sensitive wildfire conditions to develop.
  • High temperatures across the state will warm up into the upper 70s to low 80s, with portions of the interior Peninsula reaching the middle 80s with plenty of sunshine.
  • Moisture ahead of the cold front and calm winds may allow for areas of patchy to locally dense fog overnight and early Thursday morning throughout the Peninsula.
  • Southerly winds and lingering ocean swells will continue to keep a high risk for rip currents in place along the Panhandle. East-Central and Southeast Florida beaches will see a moderate to high risk for rip currents due to onshore winds and developing ocean swells.

Florida State Watch Office Morning Situation Report

EOC Activation Level: Level 2
Meteorological Summary:
  • Areas of patchy fog and low clouds have developed this morning across portions of the Panhandle and Big Bend but will continue to dissipate through the morning hours.
  • High pressure over the western Atlantic Ocean will continue to provide mostly dry conditions across the state (near 0-5% chance of rain).
  • The next approaching frontal boundary will allow for breezy wind gusts of 20-25 mph to develop across the Panhandle throughout the day, with possible gusts upwards of 30 mph along the far western Panhandle at times.
  • Despite winds shifting out of the south and allowing for moisture to recover, relative humidity values across portions of Northeast and Central Florida will fall near critical thresholds this afternoon creating locally sensitive wildfire conditions (middle to upper 30%).
  • Onshore winds along Treasure Coast may allow for a few brief sprinkles or light showers along the coast overnight, but drier air at the ground-level may prevent rainfall from reaching the ground (10-15% chance of rain).
  • Recovering moisture and light winds may give way to some areas of patchy fog and low clouds developing overnight and early Wednesday morning along the I-75 corridor and Suwannee River Valley.
  • Southerly winds and developing ocean swell will allow for a high risk for rip currents along the Panhandle. Southerly to southeasterly winds will create a moderate to high risk for rip currents along the East Coast.
