Another mild early morning along all of Central Florida early this Monday morning. No significant changes the next 36 hours.
SYNOPSIS: Strong high pressure continues to the east of Florida. Circulation around this high will produce yet again a mildly breezy afternoon with a slight onshore component and subsidence aloft resulting in slightly hazy conditions and very warm to hot conditions west of I-95 (well inland). In fact, temperatures yesterday were as much as 10 degrees warmer in that location than along the A1A corridor.
TODAY: Clear to scattered clouds by late in the day sky conditions with SSE winds around 15-25 mph by afternoon. High along the coast of 83 degrees but as much as 10 degrees warmer west of I-95 and 5 degrees warmer west of US-1.
TONIGHT: A few scattered high clouds with winds becoming more southerly but maintaining their strength.
TUESDAY: This could be a warm one for the coast. A by then old frontal boundary will be sinking into the Florida Panhandle as a strong low pressure begins to shift off the coast of Maine. The low pressure will force that strong high pressure to sink further south and east and weaken with time. As a result the winds will begin to wane and shift more toward the SSW...a land breeze for the A1A corridor. Resultant high temperatures for the coast could be significantly warmer on Tuesday although well inland it will be just another day like those of recent days (temperature wise)....skies will be partly cloudy. In fact, by late in the day some light showers might materialize from a Central Brevard-Orlando line...but nothing of significance.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Light SW winds overnight and partly cloudy with a low in the low to mid 70s.
WEDNESDAY: Increasing clouds becoming cloudy with a decent shot of afternoon evening rain showers and perhaps some thunderstorms for most if not all of East Central Florida. High temperatures will be tempered to the low - mid 80s under the mostly cloudy sky conditions. Remnant rain showers might linger well into the overnight hours.
THURSDAY: Much like Wednesday it will be mostly cloudy by afternoon with another round of rain showers and thunderstorms with slightly cooler temperatures due to cloud cover, but nothing of significance. In fact, I think our days of light jackets and cool weather are now GONE. I see no cooling trends anywhere on the horizon that are of notable difference from what we've been experiencing lately.
BY FRIDAY: As the boundary washes out across the central peninsula another one will be ready to move right on in to replace it. These boundaries will never make it to South Florida as it appears now. This seconds boundary does NOT look like it will have the potential to be a rain producer as the more recent one will be, as the atmosphere will have been "squeezed" out of the extra needed moisture to generate rain storms...
In general, in the longer term we will have climatologically normal temperatures with little in the way of rainfall. Everything will be "normal" in other words for this time of year.
Meanwhile, the Southern Plains will be cranking up next week for another severe weather event. This one will be further west than the ones that have occurred in Tornado Valley (the SE) lately (Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, etc). Wish I was out there next week.
