|Radar from around 7AM this morning just after a shower had moved over the Canaveral area and then offshore shows the cold front position at that time, and where the coldest air behind the boundary was located (purple line and north)|
THURSDAY: Continued clear and dry with similar temperatures to today but with wind less than 1/2 that of today (from the north-NNW)) it will at least feel much warmer and quite pleasant. It will be very nice in wind protected areas out of the shade. Gradually more warm going into Friday with a cool over night, but warming along the IMMEDIATE beach from the Cape south possibly before sunrise Friday.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY-SUNDAY: No change to previous line of thinking. Wind gradually works more easterly to southeasterly overnight Sunday into Monday with some patches of stratocumulus clouds. Given the timing so far, the east coast from near the Cape and South could see little drop in temperatures beyond around 9pm each of these evenings with maybe even a few degrees of increase in temperature, especially after 3AM early Sunday morning and Monday morning.
SATURDAY NIGHT NOTE: Day light Savings Time Begins . Set clocks AHEAD One Hour before bed-time. It is also a good time to check for new batteries for your weather radio as we enter a more potentially active Severe Weather Season (and a jump start at Tropical Storm Season), as well as any fire-alarm batteries that might need to be replaced.
SUNDAY MORNING/NIGHT: Sunset will be closer to 7:30pm, but then again, sunrise will be closer to 7:40AM so it will much darker for some of the kids heading off to school Monday morning.
If you are looking for an excuse to whoops: 'be late for church and miss it altogether', now is your chance to use the "I forgot to change my clock or the alarm setting excuse", because it'll only fly every couple of years (if need be).
BEYOND: No much chance of rain is in sight for quite some time which is unfortunate from a tinder dry fire season perspective. Temperatures slowly moderating with a possible warm day on Tuesday for the South 1/2 of the state, but that is again short lived, being followed by another cool but not drastically 'cold' spell of a front.
Lows in the 50Fs and 60Fs and highs in the near 70F (east coast beaches) to mid-upper 70Fs well inland 9 (except a bit cooler next Wednesday). Bearing in mind, ocean temperatures per latest Trident Pier and Port Canaveral Entrance buoys are running around 66F for Brevard County (colder north); thus, afternoon sea breeze along and east of A1A will result in daytime high temperatures running much like that of yesterday (near 70-72F), but much warmer well away from the beach. This is not much captured by TV News Stations, so heads up for it being surprisingly cool if planning on frolicking in the surf, or panning for gold.
