Florida State Watch Office Morning Situation Report

EOC Activation Level: Level 2
Meteorological Summary:
  • An active weather pattern will set up across the Panhandle and North Florida today courtesy of a coastal low pressure system moving along the northern Gulf of Mexico and across the Gulf Coast states. Abundant moisture ahead and along the warm front will allow for isolated showers this morning and early this afternoon along the eastern Panhandle and Big Bend.
  • As the low pressure system moves along the southeastern states later this afternoon,  isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue across the Panhandle and into the eastern Big Bend during the peak heating hours of the day.
  • Isolated strong to severe thunderstorm are possible along the Panhandle later this afternoon and evening hours. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is outlooking a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5) for Severe Weather as these thunderstorms may be capable of producing locally damaging winds and an isolated tornado or two.
  • The Weather Prediction Center (WPC) is outlooking a Slight Risk (level 2 of 4) for Flash Flooding through the Destin area, with a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 4) through Panama City, as rainfall totals of 1-2” are forecast, and locally higher amounts of 3-4” cannot be ruled out during times of heavy rainfall across the western Panhandle.
  • Localized flash flooding across the Panhandle cannot be ruled out over urban and low-lying/poor drainage areas throughout the day during times of heavy rainfall.
  • Patchy to locally dense fog will be favorable along the Panhandle and Big Bend coastline overnight tonight and into Monday morning.
  • Mostly sunny and dry conditions can be expected across the Peninsula with temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s courtesy of high pressure over the western Atlantic waters.
  • Southerly to southeasterly winds across most of the state will create a moderate to high risk for rip currents along several beaches.
