We are expecting a warm and wet weekend and early part of the workweek in Central Florida with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s through Tuesday and morning lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Strong easterly winds over the Atlantic Ocean will result in increasing moisture through the day, allowing for showers along the coast and throughout the day, the entire Central Florida region will see periods of rain as a warm front lifts north up the peninsula. The northward moving front will keep the area warm, humid and cloudy on Sunday with ongoing numerous showers and storms through Monday afternoon. A cold front will enter the picture late early in the workweek that will keep the pattern warm and very unsettled with showers and storms expected Tuesday ahead of the passing cold front. Cooler and drier air filters in behind the front on Wednesday allowing quiet weather over the Thanksgiving holiday.
It will be cloudy and breezy today with highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees with and east wind at 15 to 20 mph. The fresh easterly wind will generate Atlantic showers that will push across the coastal counties and inland throughout the day. Beach and boating conditions will be dangerous with a Small Craft Advisory in place for the Atlantic waters and a high rip current threat at area beaches. The frontal boundary moving up the peninsula tonight will provide the focus for numerous showers this evening and overnight, with overnight lows only falling into the upper 60s and lower 70s.
Sunday will be cloudy and, at times, quite stormy with the threat for some severe weather in the forecast during the afternoon. High temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s due to a steady southerly wind flow south of the northward moving warm front. Plenty of low level moisture will result in high rain chances again on Sunday with some stronger thunderstorms possible during the afternoon.
The weather will remain unsettled ahead of the next cold front on Monday with highs in the lower 80s and scattered showers. As the front moves into the area Tuesday, we will see a good chance for showers and thunderstorms again with conditions clearing early Wednesday as the front moves to the south. Cool and dry conditions develop late in the day Wednesday and Thanksgiving with morning lows in the 40s and afternoon highs in the 60s under sunny skies.
