A frontal boundary is currently draped over Central Florida. Although defined as stationary, it is still moving slowly south and stall just south of Orlando. Stationary is defined as moving less than seven miles per hour.
Since we are just barely on the north side of the front, chance for showers and storms will be limited due to somewhat drier air. Some storms have a chance to fire this afternoon in Volusia and Brevard counties along the coast, but the chance is down to 20 percent. Since there will be far fewer showers, the heat and humidity will not break in the afternoon. Expect highs to climb to the mid-90s with heat indices in the upper 90s to near 100.
This week, the frontal boundary will dissipate through the rest of the week. By Friday, expect our sea breezes to again become a driving force for our typical afternoon showers and storms. Expect a 50 percent chance from Friday through the weekend.
The tropical wave we have been watching in the Atlantic is now nearly 1,000 miles from the Caribbean. Although it's still only a wave, there is a 70 percent chance it could become a tropical depression or a tropical storm over the next few days. Not much has changed with it over the past 24 hours except that it is closer. There is another tropical wave behind, but little chance for development at this time.
