...Breezy and Cool Today... ...Colder Tonight with Frost Advisory Across Northern Lake and Inland Volusia Counties... Today - Tonight
Cold front has shifted southeast of the area, and will lead to a somewhat chilly start to the day with temperatures in the mid to upper 40s over much of the area by daybreak. It will remain dry across the area, with cooler than normal temperatures into the afternoon as highs are only expected to reach into the 60s. Elevated low level westerly flow up to 25-30 knots at 925-850mb will persist across the area behind this front today, and will lead to breezy/windy conditions into the afternoon. Sustained winds will reach around 15 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 30-35 mph possible. A period of partly to mostly cloudy skies expected through the morning as broken cloud deck moves in from the west, then skies expected to become mostly to partly sunny into the afternoon.
Colder temperatures expected into tonight, with lows falling into the mid 30s across northern Lake and inland Volusia counties. These temps combined with mostly clear skies and light winds should lead to patchy to areas of frost across this region, and have therefore issued a Frost Advisory for this area from 2AM-8AM Sunday. Farther south, lows in the upper 30s to low 40s are expected across much of the rest of east central Florida.
Sunday-Tuesday...A broad cyclonic trough centered over the OH valley early Sunday will move off the US E Coast early next week. advection of cool stable air will continue S into the local area during the period with slightly lower than normal temps and partly-mstly clear skies trending from Monday onward.
Extended...The flow pattern across the SRN Conus through the remainder of the week typifies presence of La Nina, with a zonal configuration through late week. An evolution to modest upper level ridging upstream across the Gulf into next weekend should bring a general warming trend the latter half of the week as M-U70s are expected by Thu onward, and no mentionable chance of rain development through the period into next weekend.
Today - Tonight
Poor to hazardous boating conditions will persist across the waters today behind the cold front. Small Craft Advisory offshore will continue through early this evening, where westerly winds will be closer to around 20 knots with seas up to 5-6 feet. Nearshore, small craft should exercise caution for winds around 15- 20 knots with seas 2-4 feet.
Sunday-Tuesday...Expect improving seas Sunday as high pressure dominates local conditions. West-NW winds will increase temporarily Monday as a dry front moves offshore the SE US coast. Headlines may be required for winds around 15 to 20 kts over the outer waters. High pressure will orient closer to the area Tue, bringing lighter winds.
Extended...Favorable conditions expected through midweek as high pressure brings winds generally 10 kts or less and seas 2 to 3 ft through Wednesday night.
Much dryer and cooler air will move into the region during today in the wake of a cold front Friday night. Minimum RH conditions in the Mid to Upper 30s inland along with gusty winds out of the west will bring a sensitive fire weather period for several hours this afternoon. Becoming cold early Sunday with lows in the Mid to Upper 30s in coldest spots. Some frost is possible mainly north and west of metro Orlando early Sunday. Generally mild conditions will continue for much of the upcoming week with nor mentionable rain chance expected through the workweek.
