Beautiful Today - Much Cooler Friday/Early Next Week

Today through Thursday Sunset As The Cold Intruder Crosses the State to the Straits

THURSDAY: Cold front will be crossing the state, passing through Central between 4 -6pm and continuing toward the Straits before midnight. NW wind of 18-24mph for a time behind the boundary and much cooler to cold with Central's lows in the upper 30Fs to lower-mid 40Fs; 50Fs far South Florida. There is a chance of increasing cloud cover state wide from late morning southward into mid afternoon and very light rainfall could occur from this cloud cover, but highs could still get into the mid-upper 70Fs south of I-4 prior to frontal passage. 

FRIDAY: Cold in the morning as noted, with modifying conditions first along the east coast. Winds becoming north to north-northeast by early afternoon with increasing lower stratocumulus clouds advecting back on shore as they become NNE-NE and thicken a bit.  

The mid-level trough lags well behind the surface front, and could act as a catalyst for light, low topped spits or sprinkles, especially east of I-95 or US1 with clouds working west of I-95 by mid-late afternoon Friday as it stretches out across Central or South Central, especially near the east coast. Highs in the lower mid 60Fs, especially near the coast toward sunset as winds become more ENE off the warmer (if one could say 'warm' , waters of the Atlantic)

SATURDAY: Little if any temperature drop from the Cape and South close to the ocean over night Friday night with clouds potentially remaining; high clouds could be in the cards as well associated with the jet stream. Highs in the mid to upper 60Fs (especially South Central/South with a few low 70Fs ). Rain drip chances dwindling from the Cape to the South, but SE Florida may see another day of them.

SUNDAY: Recovering to some degree with near 70Fs from the Central Dividing line and South. Lows Sunday morning in the low - mid 60Fs east of US1 to A1A but much cooler further inland toward the west side of the state. Highs near 70F.

MONDAY: Similar to Sunday, as yet another mid-level boundary and surface reflection back the wind to NW-NNW and bring in more cold air TUESDAY through THURSDAY morning.

High clouds could be in the picture as well at least the first 3-4 days of next week, so not expecting to see much in temperatures above the upper 60Fs, rain free.
