Mid/upper-level ridging remains over the region with surface high pressure centered over the western Atlantic extending over the Florida peninsula. Low-level winds continue to be more southerly today ahead of a trough and associated cold front, with rather warm and humid conditions persisting. Ahead of the front tonight into Friday morning, periods of showers and a few thunderstorms are expected to start mainly across the northern portion of the forecast area. Rain chances increase farther southward through the day on Friday and into Friday night as the front lingers in the vicinity. The setup becomes a bit more complex for Saturday into Sunday as a cut-off low drops into the deep south and surface low pressure forms somewhere near north Florida. These features finally move northeastward away from the region Saturday night into Sunday, with high pressure and drier and cooler air filtering into the region and rain chances coming to an end. After another warm day Friday ahead of the front, Saturday looks to be cooler with rain and cloud cover and then Sunday, highs are expected to be in the 60s area-wide. We quickly rebound for early next week as high pressure shifts eastward ahead of another system.

Marine
High pressure will keep southeast winds in place today with a turn onshore near the coast this afternoon. A cold front moves into the region Friday and Saturday, with increasing showers and storms. Winds become northwest late Saturday into early Sunday, with speeds increasing near Small Craft Advisory levels. Conditions are expected to improve early next week.

Fire Weather
No fire weather concerns over the next few days with relative humidity values remaining above critical levels. A cold front moves into the region Friday into the weekend, bringing increasing shower and thunderstorm chances.
