Full Fledged Summer is Back With a Vegeance

The frontal system that was in North Florida yesterday has moved a little further south and will make it to a Tampa to Cocoa Beach line before washing out altogether by mid-late afternoon. It looks like a weak sea breeze should set up by 4pm about the same time that thundershower activity should approach as well. Actually, it looks like our rain chance will be a little earlier today than in our last two little 'events' of the past week. It could be as soon as 3pm...or at least there will be activity spreading eastward reaching the coast from Daytona and points south after 2:30pm...with the greatest possible impact between 4:30pm - 7pm. It will be a hot one today..but even hotter tomorrow so hold on to your sunscreen and iced tea.

All in all, storm activity does not appear that it will be especially strong due to warm air aloft, but that air was there yesterday and we still squeezed out some off shore lightning after 7:30pm...and the potential looks greater today with the boundary so close to the area.

The next front is right on this front's heals, and is currently forecast to shove thru on Thursday. However, some of the latest model runs haven't come in yet so I'm not hanging my hat on that one just yet. It is tempting to though given the very progressive weather pattern the lower 48 is in right now with the upper level westerlies just ripping across the country's mid-section from coast to coast. But we can leave that for tomorrow's post. But for now, it is worth mentioning that if the front does do what it is forecast to per last night's run, then it will be through with no real temperature change but will put a major damper on shower activity for Thursday and Friday..with the weekend seeing return moist southerly flow and showers...could be fun!
