Temperatures are going to be a bit warmer to start this week with humidity higher too. A ‘cold’ front came in Sunday to shift our wind. It now has an easterly component which is sending us some of the air over the Atlantic which is more moist due to warm ocean waters. A few showers will be possible from Brevard to Flagler counties along the shore but as they move inland into somewhat dryer air, they will decrease in intensity and eventually die out.
Highs will be climbing into the mid-80s through the middle of the week with lows only dipping into the mid to upper 60s.
Later in the week, our chance of rain increases due to the possibility for a low to form along the stalled-out front in the Bay of Campeche. At this time, it seems the low will pass anywhere from South Florida to Cuba, so most of the rain will pass to the south of Central Florida. We have the greatest chance for rain Friday, and then as the low moves into the Atlantic Ocean, rain chances will drop off as cooler, drier air is drawn into Florida behind the low. For now, next weekend will be nice with highs near 80 degrees and lows dropping off to near 60 degrees again.
In the tropics, Gonzalo is now a post-tropical low racing to the northeast. There are two other areas of concern in the tropics. Low pressure is expected to develop near the African coast and has a medium chance for tropical development in the next five days. The area of low pressure that will increase our rain chances this week also has a medium chance for tropical development in the next five days.
