...Locally Heavy Rain Possible The Next Few Days... ...Heat Indices In The 100-105 Degree Range Each Afternoon...

A mid level trough down the eastern seaboard eases into the northeast Gulf of Mexico and north FL tonight as ridging extends over the central Gulf coast from the central plains and ridging is centered east of the Bahamas. At the surface Atlantic high pressure stretches westward...along the Florida Keys...to the central Gulf waters. A light southwest to west 1000-700Mb flow prevails with moisture rich air...forecast PWAT (Precipitable Water) values run 2 to 2.3 inches.

Afternoon convection was well behaved and is now winding down. Patches of light rain linger here and there and an isolated storm is just northwest of Fort Myers. These should be gone in the next hour or so. Given the onshore flow with deep moisture anticipate another round of late night coastal convection that pushes onshore in the morning hours then continues eastward. Forecasts look good but may do some near term clean-up.

Marine
Winds mostly less that 15 knots with seas 2 feet or less. A high pressure ridge axis resides near the Florida Keys going into the weekend with southwest to west winds. A moist air mass supports showers and thunderstorms in the late night and early morning hours that track onshore in the daytime. Winds and seas locally higher near thunderstorms
