"End Times" Front Crosses Florida - Prepare Now, or Else!

It's the End of the Awesome Weather Across
Florida As We Knew it as of


TODAY: Clouds have entered the grisly scene as a frontal boundary marches  troops of clouds and weapons of wind, sprinkles : armed with intrepidly cold air : sweeps the landscape (as noted in the aerial battle plan below) (note, top image  is the impact near Pensacola, which can be seen from aloft in this image blow)

TONIGHT: Winds becoming W-WNW-NW at 15-28mph with some higher gusts earlier in the evening,  with the biggest temperature drop between 4pm -8pm. The immediate coast from near Cape Canaveral south could be close to 50F (or fall about 25-30F degrees since early this afternoon by that time). Colder of course further north and warmer south.  It will remain cloudy well 
in to the night.

2:30pm Front Position

FRIDAY: Cold in comparison to recent days, but like all "End of The World" Fronts this one too will prove to appear with a Boy Who Cried Wolf Bark worse than its chilly bite.  Morning lows near 48F on the A1A strip plus or minus 2-3F degrees from Port Canaveral and South but much colder north and especially across interior portions of North Central where they could drop into the upper 30Fs, with continued breezy conditions.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON: So far, timing is almost perfect for winds to circulate around to the NE in sync with the sun having been up after about 4-5 hours of 'heating' above the cloud decks to manifest a deck of offshore moving stratocumulus clouds with light sprinkles possible along the coast of East Central east of I-95. The good thing about this is that beach side temperatures will rise toward the lower to mid-60Fs at that time as well, but inland temperatures could remain a bit cooler. Winds will begin to die down, especially after sunset toward midnight Friday evening.

BEYOND: Not much to say for the weekend. Overnight beach side A1A will see lows near 62F-65F all weekend with the shower sprinkle chances ending as winds become much lighter. Highs in the lower 70Fs possible by Sunday (mainly South and parts of South Central). The only proverbial flies in the 'anointment' will be the chance of Southern Branch Jet Stream Cirrus Clouds streaming overhead a majority of the time into early to mid range next week.  

In short, a return to near to normal seasonal temperatures, with clouds being the core issue in the afternoons through Tuesday or Wednesday at least.
