Isolated Strong Storms Late over the Interior

Strong Thunderstorm over West Cocoa off SR524, June 24, 2015
TODAY: A little more moisture in place today than yesterday, the missing ingredient from yesterday. Otherwise, not much has changed from previous days in wind and temperature fields surface and aloft  .

That being said , warm again today  with highs in the lower to mid-90Fs many areas, with a sea breeze to develop in the early to mid afternoon as it  zips up the coast from South Florida.

The West Coast sea breeze will also work inland, with both to meet somewhere in the vicinity of straight down the spine of the state in the early evening hours.

Temperatures aloft are 'cool' (but not relatively speaking, 'cold') and Convective instability with a CAPE up to 4000 and Lifted Index possibly down to -11 coupled with moisture convergence along and ahead of the approaching 'fronts' (sea breezes) spells out that the convection oven will be baking a a few pies and cookies today. 

Watch out for the Wedding Cake! (no, no wedding cakes today, the winds aloft are too weak for multi-tiered  rotating updrafts).

Best rain chances in from the immediate coast, though debris clouds might wash back over toward the coast late afternoon into evening with light rain in some locations mainly north of Brevard County.

WEDNESDAY:  A similar type of day but further from the east coast.

THURSDAY-SATURDAY: All these days favor interior toward the west coast.

PATTERN CHANGE begins SUNDAY into MONDAY; Moisture will be available in 'patchy mode' ,  so where the best moisture will be this far out in time is impossible to know, hence cannot spell out any particularly favored regions.

 Winds will have veered more from easterly at the  surface and aloft (from Thursday and Friday) to SSE (Saturday) and eventually S-SW with time by Sunday through Tuesday, which will favor the east coast rather than the west. 

Temperatures aloft might warm up as well , however, which would greatly minimize threats of 'strong storms' but not necessarily lightning presence
