Rain Chances Overthrown By The Heat

Little rain is expected for most areas across the state over the coming days. High pressure, which is typically closer to Bermuda and often called "The Bermuda High" is unusually strong and displaced to the west. The absence of daily afternoon clouds and showers will allow temperatures to reach the mid to upper 90's for most interior areas through the end of the week. When you factor in the humidity, heat indices will be in the lower triple digits at times over a large portion of central and north Florida Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, just shy of the 108° requirement for the National Weather Service to issue a Heat Advisory. By Thursday, moisture will be increasing and slight chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms will return along the inland advancing sea breezes.
