Florida State Watch Office Morning Situation Report

EOC Activation Level: Level 2 
Meteorological Summary:
  • The non-tropical low-pressure system will begin to lift northeastward along the U.S. East Coast today, allowing conditions to begin to improve statewide.
  • Isolated to scattered shower along the Northern and Central Peninsula decreasing later today and tonight (30-70% chance of rain).
  • A Marginal (level 1 of 2) to Slight Risk (level 2 of 4) for flash flooding continues along the Northeast and Central-East Peninsula as additional heavy rainfall over already saturated grounds could give way to instances of flash flooding and ponding of water.
  • High temperatures in the middle 70s and low 80s statewide.
  • Breezy conditions persist across the Northern Peninsula today with wind gusts of 15-20 mph and upwards of 20-30 mph along the coastline.
  • Minor coastal flooding and beach erosion will persist along the Atlantic Coast and St. Johns River Basin into the weekend as breezy conditions and ocean swells dissipate.
  • The St. Johns River at Astor as the river has now reached moderate flood stage due to trapped tides within the river basin.
  • Showers will continue to diminish tonight over the Northern Peninsula (5-20% chance of rain).
  • Low temperatures in the 50s and 60s across North Florida with 60s and 70s elsewhere.
  • Areas of patchy fog and low clouds may develop overnight over recently rained on areas, but stronger winds may prevent fog development.
  • As of 7:00 AM EST, Potential Tropical Cyclone 22 was located about 200 miles west-southwest of Kingston, Jamaica and moving northeast at 10 mph. This generally motion is expected to continue with an increasing forward speed through the weekend with some strengthening possible over the next couple of days. This system poses no direct threat to Florida at this time but will continue to be monitored through the weekend.
