CENTRAL FLORIDA -- Spotty storms developed Tuesday afternoon as daytime heating and boundary collisions occurred.

  • Scattered storms pick up in afternoon
  • Highs almost 90 along coast, a little higher inland

Some of the storms were strong, producing gusty wind and frequent lightning. The activity did end early and the rest of the night will be quieter.

A ridge of high pressure is allowing this kind of weather pattern to continue for the rest of the week.

A sizzling week is ahead as high temperatures will remain fairly close to seasonal average of low 90s. Rain chances will stick around 40 percent till Sunday as a weak font slides through on Father’s Day.

For next Monday, rain chances will drop as dry air from behind the weak front pushes its way in at 20 percent, with highs shy of 90.

Smaller east-southeast trades swell remain in place the next few days, with wave heights around 1-2 feet. The overall surf forecast looks poor through Friday, with more of a northeast swell kicking in by Thursday.

Sea surface temps have warmed to around 80-81 degrees along our east coast, so it’ll feel refreshing if you’re out for a swim. The good news is our rip current threat is low, but the jellyfish threat is high. Use caution!

Tropical Update

In the tropics, low pressure in the western Caribbean has a low potential for tropical development as it moves northwest toward the Yucatan Peninsula.

No threat for Florida.

The hurricane season continues through Nov. 30.
