Florida State Watch Office Morning Situation Report

EOC Activation Level: Level 2
Meteorological Summary:
  • A weak cold front will allow a few isolated showers to persist across the Peninsula this morning, ahead of the frontal boundary (15-25% chance of rain).
  • High temperatures in the 70s and 80s statewide this afternoon.
  • Minor coastal flooding and coastal erosion persists along the Southeast Coast, Keys, and St. Johns River Basin.
  • The St. Johns River at Astor remains in moderate flood stage with other portions of the river near Deland, Sanford, and Lake Harney forecast to rise into action stage (bank-full) in the next few days.
  • Moderate to high risk for rip currents generally persists statewide.
  • Lingering ocean swells continue to produce hazardous beach and boating conditions along the East Coast.
  • Low temperatures in the 40s and 50s across North Florida overnight with 60s and 70s elsewhere.
  • Areas of patchy to locally dense fog and low clouds will likely develop across the Peninsula overnight and Sunday morning as winds continue to calm.
  • Locally dense fog is expected along the I-95 and US-301 corridors after midnight as grounds remain saturated from recent rainfall.
  • A broad trough of low pressure located near the southeastern Bahamas (former Potential Tropical Cyclone 22) is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Development of this system is no longer anticipated (near 0% chance).
