Synopsis.. West-southwest winds generally around 10-15 knots will prevail over the gulf coast waters as high pressure ridges over southern florida. Daily scattered showers and an isolated Thunderstorm will be possible each day with the highest chances north of tarpon springs earlier in the day before more of the activity pushes inland. However, under the current pattern, there exists at least a small chance of showers or storms at any time... Otherwise, no headlines are expected through the period. The main hazards will continue to be associated with higher winds and seas as well as dangerous lightning associated with passing Thunderstorms.

UPDATE . For the most part, it's been another early arrival and early departure for convection across West Central and Southwest FL. As we speak, the only active rainfall is across Sumter and Highlands county, but this will soon push east of our area. Somewhat similar to yesterday, the occasional shower and perhaps rumble of thunder will be possible through much of the late evening hours, mostly from the Bay Area northward due to lower PWATs farther south. This is in part to the strong low-level westerly flow advecting warm, moist air over the hot Gulf Waters and enhanced coastal convergence . Trimmed back PoPs across the interior and made minor adjustments through the rest of this evening to account for this thinking.

Some model blends continue to be rather bullish with PoPs as of late and keep afternoon PoPs a bit too high for our western counties. Strong 1000mb-700mb westerly flow will be in place once again tomorrow. With average moisture content this time of year, have opted to blend in Climatological PoPs that represent strong westerly flow. This tunes down rain chances along coastal communities as we head into the evening of the 4th, although scattered to numerous storms are still expected across the interior. Greatest storm coverage, however, will be confined to the eastern half of the peninsula .

Finally, remember that heat can kill. Heat Index values will run between 100-105 degrees tomorrow afternoon so if you are outside for an extended periods of time, please be sure to take precautions to avoid heat related illness.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
