It was a gloomy start to the weekend with cloudy skies and light rain moving in off of the Atlantic. Strong easterly winds resulted in increasing moisture throughout the day Saturday as a frontal boundary to our south started to lift north. The northward-moving front will keep the area warm, humid, cloudy and stormy on Sunday with ongoing numerous showers and storms through Monday afternoon. A cold front will enter the picture 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.
The frontal boundary moving up the peninsula overnight will provide the focus for numerous showers. Winds will remain breezy out of the east, which will keep temperatures from dropping as much as previous nights. Lows will fall into the upper-60s to around 70 degrees.
The chance for showers and even a few storms will continue Sunday. Expect mostly cloudy skies and high winds out of the south. While the threat for severe weather is mainly north and west of Central Florida, there is still a possibility for a few strong storms to develop. The main threat will be high, gusty wind. Temperatures will climb above average into the mid- to low-80s.
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 weather will remain unsettled ahead of the next cold front 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.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season ends Nov. 30.
