New DISCUSSION, MARINE, FIRE WEATHER

DISCUSSION
Issued at 416 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Ridging will continue to dominate our weather pattern over the next couple of days. As the pressure gradient is squeezed over us between the strong ridge and the deepening low pressure in the western Gulf of Mexico, breezy easterly winds are expected the next few days.
With this strong ridging overhead, slightly warmer than average temperatures are expected (lower 90s) over the next couple of days and the strong easterly flow will focus the warmest temperatures along the west coast of Florida. Mostly rain free conditions are expected today as PWs will remain under 1.5 inch and only isolated thunderstorm chances are expected on Wednesday.

Moisture will begin returning to the area later this week as a system in the Atlantic approaches the east coast. There still remains some uncertainty regarding the degree of intensity with this system, but one thing they do agree on is the increase in rain chances it brings to the Florida Peninsula as moisture streams across the state towards the latter half of the week and into the weekend. Temperatures during this time frame will continue to run above average, with the warmest temperatures being felt across the Nature Coast. Lower 90s will be seen across SWFL through Central Florida, with middle 90s expected across our northern counties. The warm temperatures along with the increase in moisture will lead to heat index values in the triple digits for most of the forecast area during the afternoon hours.
