Today, we'll start to see a pattern shift away from the steady rain we have been accustomed to over the last week. The latest frontal boundary has shifted south, taking most of the moisture with it. However, today won't be entirely rain-free. There still will be enough lingering moisture and energy to create additional clouds and showers this afternoon, but coverage will be far less than recent days. The overall rain chance stands at 50 percent. After some patchy morning fog, partial sun will emerge for the mid-morning hours, leading to widely scattered afternoon storms. The greater rain chance will exist south of I-4, closer to the surface boundary stalled to our south.
A few showers will linger into the evening, but drier air will filter in as the overnight progresses. Lows will settle back to the low-70s as skies become fair by daybreak.
Thursday will bring a temporary break from the high rain chances as the likelihood will get lowered to 40 percent as high pressure builds in from the north. Expect more sunshine and fewer showers again Friday with highs back up near 90 degrees.
Rain will be quick to return Saturday with the approach of another cold front. This one will slide in from the northwest and produce numerous showers and storms Saturday into Saturday night. It will be behind this system that we tap into a noticeably drier airmass, one that will lower rain chances significantly next week. Temperatures will begin to cool off by that time, too, with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the mid- to upper-60s.
In the tropics, there are no systems showing signs of development at this time.
