Easterly winds will dominate our weather pattern this week across Central Florida, circulating around a ridge of high pressure parked over the western Atlantic. The east coast breeze will also push far enough onshore to limit the development of afternoon storms and keep them confined to the west coast.
Otherwise, plan on a blend of sun and clouds with high temperatures in the low 90s throughout the interior. This onshore wind flow will keep the beaches slightly cooler, in the mid-80s.
Any storms that do develop could be capable of heavy rain and lightning. They will fade when the sun goes down. Lows will fall to the low 70s.
This weather pattern will persist throughout much of the week, keeping rain chances low each afternoon. Highs will consistently run around 90 degrees inland and in the mid-80s at the coast.
Those heading to the beach will want to use caution getting in the water and observe any flags warning of hazards. The steady swell will also result in poor boating conditions.
Weather can be mysterious, exciting and sometimes dangerous. That's why ;News 13 created Project Weather to help provide kids with the information they need to stay safe. Project Weather is made up of interactive educational resources to help prepare students for the future.
