Florida State Watch Office Morning Situation Report

EOC Activation Level: Level 2
Meteorological Summary:
  • Numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms develop across the Florida Peninsula this afternoon (70-95% chance of rain).
  • A few thunderstorms may become strong to locally severe and capable of producing gusty winds (45-55 mph), small hail, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours.
  • Heavy rainfall rates may lead to localized areas of flooding and ponding of water over urban and poor drainage/low-lying locations (Marginal Risk for Flash Flooding – level 1 of 4).
  • Drier airmass and low rain chances return to the Florida Panhandle today, with elevated rain chances confined to Florida Big Bend and Suwannee River Valley (25-55% chance of rain).
  • Warm temperatures and humid conditions will allow for temperatures to feel like the lower to middle 90s across the Florida Peninsula before rain relief this afternoon.
  • Persistent northeasterly winds to yield a moderate to high risk of rip currents along all Atlantic Coast and Panhandle beaches today.
  • Non-tropical area of low pressure to form along a frontal boundary offshore of the Southeast U.S. within the next day or two. Regardless, the system is likely to produce gusty winds, dangerous surf, and a high risk of rip currents along portions of the Southeast U.S. coastline into the weekend. This system has a 10% (low) chance of development over the next 7 days.
