Rain chances will be going back up again today due to increased moisture in place ahead of a weakening cold front. This feature will be lowering across the Interstate 10 corridor and losing energy as it does so, but it will still act to enhance the coverage of afternoon showers and storms. Any storms that develop should generally move from northwest to southeast across the peninsula and carry the threat of gusty winds, heavy rain and frequent lightning.
The storms will provide some cooling relief from the oppressive heat and humidity that will again be draped over the area. Highs will climb to the low to mid-90s throughout the interior, although temperatures will hinge upon local cloud cover and rain. With dew points in the low to mid-70s, it won’t take much to boost the “feels like” temperature into the low to mid-100s.
The remnant boundary will sink south midweek as it washes out, allowing a slight and temporary reduction in shower activity for Wednesday and Thursday. Typical late day sea breeze storms will then be factored in to keep rain chances elevated through the remainder of the week into weekend as moisture gradually returns. Highs will generally run in the low to mid-90s for the balance of the week with overnight lows in the mid-70s.
In the tropics, we are focused on a developing area of low pressure labeled Invest 93. It seems likely this low will become our next tropical cyclone sometime this week as it has a high chance of development within the next 2 to 5 days. Long-range models show the system clipping the northern Lesser Antilles and recurring northeast of the Bahamas before curving offshore but parallel to the East Coast of the United States. There is plenty of time for this system to change track and there is a great deal of uncertainty with the overall strength but at this time, it does not appear as this system will have a direct impact on Central Florida.
