Soggy and squally weather will continue off and on through Tuesday, thanks to another wave of moisture surging in from the tropics, this time from the Atlantic. No tropical cyclone development is expected, but an elongated area of lower pressure will move ashore late Monday and Tuesday in central and south Florida. The pressure gradient between this system and a strengthening ridge of high pressure to the north will result in breezy winds and choppy seas along Florida’s Atlantic Coast, along with occasional rain showers, through the middle of the week. The deeper moisture with this system will push inland as well, resulting in numerous showers and thunderstorms for Florida’s interior both Monday and Tuesday. A drier air mass will rotate in from the northeast on Wednesday, likely keeping most of Florida north of I-4 rain free for at least a day.
- Fast-moving rain squalls from the east, likely crossing I-75 between 2 and 5 pm
- Wind gusts to 40 mph possible in stronger cells
- Clearing most areas by early evening
- More widespread and longer-lasting showers for central and south Florida
- Some ocassional rain still expected in North Florida in the afternoon
- Breezy conditions and choppy seas along the Atlantic coast
