|MEOW-ZERS! The day to go All-American, 2011. Pets Included.|
TODAY: So far this morning, as expected moisture from South Florida is working north and now well into most of South Central Florida. Expect that by day's end it will have reached to about the Beachline, with a nice moisture gradient in the mid-levels to be established roughly around South Central Brevard on the East Side during the late afternoon and waivering westward toward the north side of Tampa Bay.
It is along this gradient combined with a predominant easterly flow in the low levels and likely Bay and/or west coast Gulf Breezes that the strongest storms today should occur toward early evening. Above this low level generally easterly flow, there is a weak mid-level current running from the SW to NE across South Central toward Central Florida. This might be enough for a weak thunderstorm or line of showers to form along the west side of the intracoastals of Brevard. Due to weak steering in the 11AM- 1PM time frame, some weak funnel-ish type clouds could form (small funnel clouds) anywhere from under the most tall cloud lines as rain starts to fall , or shortly thereafter (assuming this can even occur at all). Otherwise, the combined efforts of geography and winds could place a heavier rain shower toward weak thunderstorm to occur somewhere around North Merritt Island toward Port St John before 1:30pm, especially as the sea-breeze is about to move in. Lighter showers could also occur as far north as South or Central Volusia County west of the intracoastals.
