Beautiful day across west central Florida. High pressure in the Atlantic will give us southeasterly winds until the seabreeze kicks in during the afternoon hours. With sunshine and southerly flow we will see high temperatures near record breaking during the afternoon. No updates needed to the forecast at this time.

AVIATION... VFR conditions expected through the period. Winds will be increasing to around 10 knots this afternoon before going back down overnight. Winds will also be shifting from the southeast to the southwest through the period.

Prev /issued 207am EST Sat Feb 27 2021/

Near record warmth with humid conditions this weekend as upper ridging from the N Carib builds over the E Gulf and FL Peninsula while surface high pressure from the W Atlantic remains stretched over the area. Increased southerly low level flow combined with rising heigheights aloft to produce daytime high temps in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees over interior and southern areas. Only break from the heat will be along the immediate coast with afternoon seabreezes bringing cooler shelf water air into those locations.

The mid/upper-level ridge is expected to flatten slightly and sink southward early next week, as a shortwave moves well N of the area. A weak surface frontal system is forecast to slowly move through the Gulf and Deep South as upper support moves out allowing the system hang in the region Tue-Thu with a low end chance for some showers, a few thunderstorms, and mainly above normal temps. Models differences continue with this weak system and forecast for late week as well.

Marine Discussion
