Short term mid term (tonight-Sunday)
The weak area of low pressure along the southeast florida coast is
expected to drift northwest and north over the peninsula tonight
and Saturday and then turn northeast out into the atlantic ocean
Saturday night and Sunday. On this general track most of the
forecast area will remain on the west and therefore drier side of
the system.

For the rest of this afternoon and evening scattered showers and a
few thunderstorms will continue to move west and southwest across
the region. Then overnight into early Saturday morning some
isolated to scattered convection will continue over the eastern
gulf waters, but most of the showers and storms will remain along
the east coast with a few showers possibly moving into highlands
and eastern polk counties. For the remainder of Saturday current
indications are that we'll see a similar scenario to today with
scattered showers and a few thunderstorms developing and moving
southwest across the region. During Saturday night and Sunday it
looks like some drier air will spread into the area which could
limit the convective coverage on Sunday, but models are offering
differing solutions so for now have continued with the scattered
pops, except numerous over the interior, during the afternoon and
early evening. Main concern with the showers and thunderstorms
will be locally heavy rainfall, but with the convection moving
rather quickly rainfall amounts will be limited and the overall
current forecast track of the low would keep the heaviest rainfall
east and south of our area.

Long term (Sunday night-next Friday)
At the start of the period Sunday night, the low pressure system
currently in the headlines will be located off the southeast
coast. Regardless of tropical development by this time, the
surface low will be pulling off to the northeast away from the
florida peninsula. The departing system will create southwest flow
on Monday and with pwat around 2 inches expect morning
showers thunderstorms gradually migrating inland throughout the
day. Through mid week, west to northwest flow will be countered by
broad cyclonic flow and ample moisture, allowing for rather
sporadic rain chances each day. By Thursday into Friday, a
tropical upper tropospheric trough (tutt) will be moving westward
across cuba. While this upper level feature will be well to our
south, some enhancement at the lower levels may induce a weak area
of low pressure along a frontal boundary and bring an increase in
pops as we end the work week. Otherwise, temperatures will be near
average for this time of year but daily cloud cover and
precipitation activity will dictate temperatures by a few degrees.

Aviation
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to cause some
MVFR local ifr conditions, otherwise mainlyVFR conditions are
expected during the next 24 hours. Northeast winds at 6 to 10
knots this afternoon will diminish to around 5 knots or less
tonight then increase back to 6 to 10 knots by late Saturday
morning. Winds could be briefly higher near convection with gusts
up to 25 knots possible.

Marine
A northeast to north flow will persist into Sunday then shift to a
more west to southwest early next week as a weakening front moves
into the southeast states. Winds and seas will remain below
headline criteria, although daily thunderstorms will produce
locally hazardous boating conditions.

Fire weather
Abundant low level moisture will keep relative humidity values
above critical levels through the period with no red flag
conditions expected. No significant fog is expected.
