August 17 (10:00am) -click for official Forecast Discussion for Cape Canveral Area

Went to the beach this mornig to watch the launch. Very nice. For today...

"In a nutshell" post: East Central Florida remains in subsidence behind remnant Claudette and ahead of the upper level low pressure area slowly approaching the Florida Straits. Given the fact that there were some showers around late yesterday afternoon, over night, and currently well off shore it's a good bet that this pattern will continue and in fact increase a bit throughout the day and tonight.
The overall available moisture has increased nicely since yesterday, so would expect greater coverage inland by late afternoon. 500mb temps are actually much cooler today so thunder isn't out of the question west of the state's spine.
Expect that given the deeper layer moisture off the Atlantic and cooler temps aloft, in combination with the lack of any intruding factors, that this pattern will continue with periods of showers dictated by "waving" motions in the mid-lower levels which generate the showers in cluster batches.
