WEATHER-WXWALL


CHANGES AHEAD TO CLOSE THE WORK WEEK

The onshore flow from the Gulf of Mexico continued Wednesday, with the the bulk of the activity in inland areas. Scattered showers and storms will likely continue this evening in inland areas, with temps in the 80s. We'll see the activity die down overnight, with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

We have more onshore flow on Thursday, which will again bring scattered activity in coastal areas in the morning hours. More activity will be possible this afternoon, with the best chance for activity in areas east of I-75. Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

Changes will arrive on Friday. Winds will shift to the southeast and east to close the work week, ending the coastal threat for AM rain. The winds will also provide a better chance for PM storms in the Urban Corridor, with highs in the low 90s.

More moisture will enter the area for the weekend, increasing the threat for scattered activity. The best chance for rain will be in the PM hours both Saturday and Sunday, with highs in the low 90s.

The moisture remains in place on Monday, before slightly drier air is expected to roll in by Tuesday. Temps next week look to remain in the low 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We are still keeping a very close eye on a disturbance sitting in the Atlantic between the Lesser Antilles and the west coast of Africa. The system is much weaker than Tuesday, and the National Hurricane Center has reduced the chance for development to 50%.

The disturbance is still expected to move west and eventually curving northwestward. Right now, it does not look like it will be impacting Florida.

Elsewhere, weak tropical waves are developing in the Atlantic but no major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
