Another front has slipped down from the north, replacing the weakened front already in place. This will keep rain in the forecast for the next several days at higher levels than normal, especially today. There is a 70 percent chance for showers and storms, mainly this afternoon and evening as our temps heat into the mid-80s. A low will also form along the front, very similar to what happened a few days ago. This will enhance our heavier downpours in spots, as well as keep rain chances in the 60 percent to 70 percent chance through Thursday.
Because of all the rain lately and the moisture yet to come, localized flooding will be possible in poor drainage areas. Small streams and roadways could temporarily overflow, so be careful driving about since you could hydroplane with just a small amount of water at high speeds.
Storms will lose intensity as the sun sets, but scattered light showers will linger into the overnight. Lows will run in the low to mid-70s. Patchy areas of fog are possible again on Wednesday morning.
The pattern will not change much from this through at least Friday with the boundary slow to dissipate across Central Florida, leaving a prolonged period of wet weather in the forecast. Rain chances will lower slightly over the weekend. Highs will consistently run in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees, not far off from the seasonal average for this time of September, which is 89 degrees.
In the tropics, we are watching a few weak waves propagate west in the Central Atlantic, but none of them appear to be taking on tropical characteristics. No systems are expected to form in the next 48 hours.
