Near Term - Through Tonight
Expect showers and storms to develop by mid afternoon favoring the Florida panhandle and southeast Alabama. East coast seabreeze may develop a few storms later this afternoon and evening which could make it into our area moving westward. An influx of tropical moisture will move northward through the Gulf emanating from an inverted surface trough near the southwest Florida coast. That feature will lift north and northeast while rain chances will increase in our Gulf waters overnight primed for higher chances across our area Monday. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy tonight with lows in the lower 70s.

.SHORT TERM [Tomorrow Through Tuesday Night]... As an upper level trough deepens over the western US, an inverted trough and corresponding weak surface low will travel north along the west coast of Florida. Guidance differs on the exact path as it moves northward. These differences vary the amount of showers and thunderstorm activity we could see tomorrow into Tuesday morning. As of now the best chances for enhanced activity and precipitation look to be over areas along the eastern Florida Panhandle and big bend and east of the GA/AL border on Monday. Coverage is expected to be more scattered Tuesday. Temperatures will be in the mid 80s both days, with Monday nigheights lows in the upper 60s.

Long Term - Tuesday Night Through Sunday
Our position relative to a cut off low forming over eastern Texas, and a diffuse area of high pressure will funnel moisture northward, keeping afternoon convection in the forecast throughout the week. High temperatures will increase as high pressure builds in later in the period, with a return to lower 90s for highs, and upper 60s to lower 70s for the lows.

Marine
