"Cool Snap" Over - Near to Above Average' Temperatures to Prevail into December

Cape Canaveral, Tuesday Morning
TODAY: End of the 'colder mornings' transpired this morning as a gradual warm up begins this evening. As high pressure slides to the east (and north of Florida) a generally light easterly flow should be just strong enough to prevent temperatures this evening from falling nearly so much as the past several days, especially east of I-95 where dew-point temperatures will rise the most after dark.

 Lows Wednesday morning could be anywhere from 10-15F degrees warmer than this morning's low temperatures as a result. 

The coolest areas will be near Rte 27 toward I-4, the  'West Central Spine of the state' with lows in the upper 40Fs to lower-mid 50Fs but lows at the immediate east coast beaches will be closer to 65F -70F Wednesday morning, according to most guidance. Dew point temperature will also be in on the increase, so might be watching for some 'patch fog' in some locations tomorrow morning.

WEDNESDAY: Again, warmer all quads Wednesday morning and beyond. East Coast , especially east of US1,  probably won't see temperatures below 65F for quite some time to come (except possibly this weekend  - referenced further down in the post).

 Otherwise, Highs on Wednesday in the upper 70Fs to near 80F (esp. inland from the coast). Continued air mass modification of moisture mainly in the lower levels could result in 'patching of flat starto-cumulus cloud deck' between the 4500-6000 feet levels to move in on the coast, with the better chance of that occurring after mid-late morning.

THANKSGIVING: Low near 66F-70F east coast south of The Cape and in the upper 50Fs to lower 60Fs well-inland. Again, cloud cover could be an issue from time to time. The GFS shows 'very light trace amounts of rain possible under denser cloud deck portions', but question that. Even so, any 'precipitation' twere it to fall, will unlikely   even get the ground wet.

 Overall, temperatures around normal, with a easterly wind around 10-15mph at the beaches with partly to occasionally 'most cloudy' skies perhaps at times.

FRIDAY: Wind becomes more ESE-SE. Normal temperatures ranges prevail as a frontal boundary moves toward the West Florida Panhandle toward Central Florida for Saturday. HIghs in the upper 70Fs - 'near 80F' beaches, and a bit warmer west of I-95. Partly cloudy.

SATURDAY:  Front to be across Central Florida early in the day near Sunrise. Boundary to dry out the air quite a bit through the weekend, but temperatures behind this boundary are not foreseen to fall as low as they did with the previous front that went through Sunday morning of this week. 

Lows mainly in the 50Fs Central and South Florida and closer to 60F- 63F at the beaches both Saturday and Sunday with Highs in the lower-mid-70Fs with a north - NNE wind.

MONDAY-TUESDAY: Wind to become again east to Southeast, even SSE on Tuesday? Much warmer possibly than we have seen in a while come Tuesday next week with highs in the lower to mid 80Fs with SSW-SW wind. 

Forecasts are for a 'pretty good chance of MUCH needed rain' with this next boundary, but that is highly questionable at time. Better chances appear  to be for North Florida with mostly 'cloud cover' associated with the front Central through South Florida.

TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY next week time frame: Front to swing through with rapid shift to NE wind behind it. Thus, not a 'huge' temperature drop with the front (at least as foreseen that far out in time). More like 50Fs for lows (though cooler mainly West of the spine of the state) for two days.

  Beyond that, the next front not slated until after December 1.
