Saturday, August 8 (7:35AM)

The weather pattern transition which began 36 hours ago is now complete generally speaking. Even between yesterday and this morning (and haven't even seen morning data yet) there are additional changes in this pattern which overall will have no affect on east central Florida. Just by looking at the sky this morning (with a full moon as noted in the picture I've added) indicates that there is a very remote chance of a rain shower before 10AM. But nothing more than that.
The remainer of the day will be partly cloudy due to splotches of cirrus or cirrostratus clouds but generally sunny. One subtle change is in the upper level winds which are no longer healthy out of the southwest; hence, not expecting a cirrostratus shield to cover the area as was the case yesterday.

Overall, looks like a "Ft. Myers - Sarasota" set up (good ole' Ft. Myers). But they're due to get some good storms. This year has not been gracious for that area storm wise. The set up for them yesterday looked promising and sure enough I see some rainfall totals in the 1-2" range were recorded. It will likely be the same for the next few days down there, those lucky dogs. Just once I'd love to catch a West Coast Gust Front. That would be a site to see a front lit gust front one hour before sunset! Photo ops. abounding. There'll likely be some strong storms over there today and wouldn't be surprised to see a warning at some point after 6pm.
