A closed upper low is now located to the northwest of Bermuda with associated troughing extending southwest through the western Atlantic. This trough remains to the north while upper ridging extends over Cuba and the Florida Straits. This will allow for a predominant west-southwest onshore flow to remain over the region to close out the week and into the weekend. On the surface, high pressure extends through the Florida Straits and into the Gulf of Mexico, while a stationary frontal boundary extends from from west to east along the northern gulf coast states, through GA and into the western Atlantic. Interaction between this boundary and high pressure over southern Florida will keep a warm and moist west- southwest onshore wind flow over the region for the next several days. Just as we saw this morning, this pattern will support developing showers over the gulf coast waters overnight and early morning, then progressing eastward over western Florida late morning and gradually inland through the afternoon hours each day. The boundary shifts southward by the weekend bringing increased moisture and instability and will produce higher rain/storm chances from Saturday through Monday next week. With minimal change in the synoptic pattern, temperatures will remain consistent with daytime highs in the low to mid 90's each day and overnight lows in the mid to upper 70's. Heat indices each day will range from 100-105 degrees during the afternoon hours.
