First Alert Weather: Unchanging pattern will lead to mostly inland storms

  • 0

The weather pattern over the state is very similar to what we have seen for the last few day and should be unchanging in the next 2 or 3 days.

With a high to our east and south we will have light wind flow and upper level winds out of the south. This is bringing moisture from the Caribbean into atmosphere above us. When we combine that moisture with the heat of the day and a sea breeze circulation we will have good chances for showers and thunderstorms in inland locations east of the interstate. Closer to the coast we will stay mostly sunny with highs near 90.

Red Tide remains a problem. Latest observations show background to moderate amounts of Red Tide toxin in the water and low to moderate amounts of respiratory irritation being reported. Winds will be onshore this afternoon. Drift forecasts indicate the flow of water should parallel the coast for the next few days.
