discussion (today - Tuesday)...

a deep-layered ridge north of florida will gradually sink
south into florida over the next several days. This feature
will control our weather right through Tuesday, and possibly
for several days beyond.

What this means for us is more of the same... Lots of
sunshine and very warm to hot conditions.

Today may be the last day that we could potentially squeeze
out a few showers during the late afternoon or evening
hours. There could be enough moisture between the surface
and 10,000 feet for some low topped convection, especially
along the west coast sea breeze boundary this evening. The
overall rain chances will be less than 20 percent so will
not include in the forecast at this time.

Drier air moves in after today resulting in a hostile
atmosphere for shower development for the next several days.

The earliest we may see moisture return is Sunday as the
low-level ridge begins to shift into the atlantic allowing
southeasterly flow to bring some moisture back our way.

Still, with such strong ridging aloft, it's unlikely we'll
see any significant shower activity through the beginning of
next week.

With the surface high center to our north through Saturday,
we'll see easterly surges move across the state during the
late afternoon and evening hours. Any sea breeze that
develops during the afternoon hours will be quickly
displaced into the gulf.

Temperatures will average at least 5 degrees above normal
through the forecast period. There will be some relief from
the heat along the immediate coast with the sea breeze each
day, especially Sunday through Tuesday as the ridge begins
to relax its hold on the region.

Marine...

scattered showers over the waters this morning should
gradually diminish as the easterly winds abate and coastal
sea breezes take shape. The only real concern is the
potential for easterly surges of 15 to 20 knots tonight,
Thursday night, and Friday night. These surges usually only
last a few hours and tend to push off the coast during the
late afternoon or early evening hours.

Fire weather...

main fire weather concern for the next several days will be
the hot and dry conditions along with high dispersions.

Minimum relative humidities will run between 30 and 40
percent during the hottest part of each afternoon. Red flag
conditions are not expected.
