Nothing much really to write about so we can leave this one short and sweet. High pressure in the mid levels almost directly overhead at 6000 ft and just to the NNE above that is producing weak subsidence in a somewhat dry atmospheric environment other than in a shallow layer from the surface to about 7K (0-7000 feet). Above that altitude, the winds are from the WNW advecting a much drier air layer overhead. At the surface, high pressure is over eastern Georgia and the Carolinas.
TODAY: Continued east wind with gradually increasing, though shallow, moisture will swallow us whole today. The net result will be advection of a modified marine layer across the state and comfortable afternoon temperatures. Clouds will come in off and on in patches and an isolated rain shower could make landfall anywhere from Daytona to South Beach Miami/Dade area, but the greatest likelihood of precipitation appears to be from Ft. Pierce to Cape Canaveral from 1pm -8pm. However, should this even occur, it will be a short and only light duration...although a brief moderate rain could fall from the utmost, heaviest of clouds. With "should" "could" or perhaps "would" (of desire) be stressed. Overall though, rain free.
SUNDAY-WEDNESDAY: Same deal as far as winds and temperatures goes. Highs near 80 and lows near 60, with winds slowly weakening and veering more southeasterly throughout this time frame. Rain could occur at any time, unlike a summer pattern when we have the afternoon thunderstorm variety type rainfall.
THANKSGIVING DAY: Partly cloud and quit warm with a high in the low to mid 80s. A cold front will be across the Panhandle by morning but will have little direct impact as far as rain chances goes.
FRIDAY: Best chance for rain anytime frame, particularly from sunrise-5pm. NW winds will be fast of the heels of the passing cold front Friday night as it blasts on through South Florida by shortly after sunset. Rain chances will then end with lows falling into the mid-50s. Not really that big a deal.
NEXT WEEKEND: Air mass begins to modify once again with temperatures returning to seasonable norms.
