Atmospheric Limp Wet Rag, Very Like July

"Lone Cabbage Fish Camp on Wednesday Evening"

TODAY: if the atmosphere was but a limp wet rag, today is just about like one with winds less than 10 kts all the way to nearly the jet stream level and variable in direction. With little steering to speak of, some areas could get a a large amount of rainfall today while nearby others remain dry. Suspect more areas will be dry as opposed to wet but cloud coverage will increase especially away from the coasts as the day wears on. Storm motion will be 'close to non-existent' (very slow) but  forward propagation along outflow boundaries, cloud lines, and lake/sea breezes will provide for more of an apparent motion.  Conditions are actually good for waterspout formation near to just off shore should towering clouds find the opportunity to present themselves in any given area earlier in the day.

It could rain/thunder almost anywhere, this graphic is showing perhaps where activity will be most focused  after 4pm 

Severe Thunderstorm over the boggy swamps east of  'OIA'

TOMORROW/WEEKEND: No change in thinking from previous few posts. Most activity will remain away from the coasts once the sea breezes commence, though steering in any one direction is no longer an option, today appears to be more reflective of future days rather than either coast (side of the state) being significantly more favored than another (or apparently so).

Same Storm Closer Up

BEYOND: No changes until around Monday -Wednesday or perhaps Thursday when another trough deepens over the eastern U.S. and presses the Atlantic Ridge axis which is now generally across Central Florida back to the South for a few days resulting in a bit more of  a west to east storm motion, or at least propagation tendency..
