Tropical Wave Watch: Development Unlikely

A wave of tropical moisture and lower pressure was approaching southern Florida Sunday evening.  This wave has a low chance (according to the NHC) of becoming a tropical cyclone.  Upper-level wind are only marginally favorable and the system is likely to remain more than 50 percent over land.  Squalls of heavy rain and higher winds, however, are expected across coastal regions of central and south Florida overnight and into Monday morning.

As daytime heating commences again on Monday afternoon, numerous showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop over inland areas of North-Central Florida as well.  Pockets of heavy rain and gusty winds will be possible.  The degree of instability is in question due to some expected heavy cloud cover.  However, should enough sunshine break out early in the day, a few isolated severe storms capable of producing minor wind damage would be possible.

Updates can been seen anytime of day on WRUF-TV (Cox Channel 6, 10.1 over the air, or via live streaming).  Follow @GatorWeather for mobile storm tracking throughout the day.
