More moisture is on tap for our area and here is how it is all shaping up...a cold front to our north has washed out and a weak trough of low pressure from the Bahamas is shifting west and moving over Florida on Monday.
High pressure is giving us a break from the rain. The clear skies and abundant sunshine is providing some hot weather across the Suncoast. We have readings back up in the low 90′s once again and temperature norms are in the upper 80′s this time of the year.
Breezy conditions will be felt along the Suncoast beginning during the afternoon hours on Sunday as a High pressure system along the eastern seaboard into the Gulf of Mexico will slowly strengthen during the next few days.
The tropics are still busy and now we have Tropical Storm Karen coming off the coast of South America and heading towards Puerto Rico. This storm is expected to follow in the wake of Jerry for a few days.
With plenty of moisture around and the daytime heating, we should see showers forming over the area each day this week with the storms first developing inland and then moving towards the coast during the afternoon hours.
The High pressure system that has been dominating our weekend forecast and giving us more sun than rain over the past two days is about to move away and allow for an upper level trough to drop in from the Great Lakes region to the northern Gulf.
The off and on showers will continue through Tuesday before we start to see a real break on Wednesday. Over the past couple of days, we have seen some pockets of rain with 3-5 inches in some isolated locations.
-Showers popped up across the region but they were not bringing about the rain we hoped for after weeks of very dry weather. The heaviest rain and thunderstorms were over the northern part of Florida and the East coast.
