TODAY/SATURDAY: A picture from the sky says 1000 words (if necessary) as can be seen below. Cooler under the cloud cover and North Florida but warmer into the lower 80Fs away from the clouds. The above image shows the anticipated inverted trough well off shore and it's counterpart in the form of a bit a stationary front from the cold fronts passage a few days ago remainings over South Central Florida. It didn't work it's way as far north as earlier models had suggested and so here Central Florida lays under and overrunning pattern to this moment which could remain in place to varying degrees until Sunday morning. The weak Low offshore might gather some more momentum and with an 'impulse' to possibly ride over head tonight into tmorrow rain chanes could increase at some point during the day Saturday though it might be a bit warmer for a few regions further north than today.

but not eroding much from the south
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY: Improving conditions, much drier and warmer though a bit breezy on Sunday. Clearing should truly commence for good by Early Sunday afternoon or sooner in North Florida..with some near stellar Chamber of Commerce type Days Monday and Tuesday.
WEDNESDAY: Watching for possible strong to marginally severe storms this day as latest seems to indicate good mid level lapse rates and bulk shear at that same level which could result in some strong wind gusts if storms can get going..especially over the South Half of the state were better but marginal low level instability would be more likely. So far the 'window of opportunity' is honing in on somewhere from 3pm through midnight Wednesday, but details will be changing quite a bit between today and then.
VALENTINE'S GUESS FOR NOW: Much cooler and breezy and drier.
