|Questionable Area Today Runs from North Brevard to|
North Tampa Bay and South (Big Time)
In a sense, this puts Brevard County in the position that Indian River and St. Lucie Counties were in yesterday. Further inland, the position gets even more questionable in regard to rainfall potential.
Otherwise, given that activity attempt to the south of I-4 appears will occur later and be more dependant upon outflow from activity currently in place north, instability could be albe to build up a bit better further south and the sea breezes will have an infinitesimal chance of developing as well but remain glued well east of I95 if not even US1. Therefore, best chance of stronger storms or even a storm at all is noted above in purple, but on the other hand due to extenuating circumstance, the same area and south has a chance to see little but a rain shower if the sea breezes can't kick in, noting that virtually no model is showing rain to break out today much of anywhere other than where it is already raining and perhaps over the Everglades west of the Miami metros other than some sprinkles toward East Central. We can see how the models do with the situation either way given that the morning GFS showed nothing to be occurring now where it is currently raining. Not worth much then is it? Insert Frowning Smiley face here.
TOMORROW: Once again guidance is not generous with the rain chances but the GFS implies a sea breeze south of the Cape for the most part, so perhaps it is not taken into consideration a well enough uplifting mechanism to make very happy tall clouds that produce big booms.

BEYOND: Increasing rain chances going toward week's end pretty sure with perhaps a change in the winds coming early next week. Guidance of the GFS is showing the ridge to lift north of the state as a tropical wave passes to the south, but exactly how far north it will lift and for how long goes beyond model reliability if not even after only day 4. The GFS has shown long term easterlies setting up though which puts an end to late afternoon thunderstorms east half of state going out into day 10, but seems to be wavering on that even as of the 2AM model run.
