Afternoon Storms to Bring Relief for Some

The heat has been above average for this time of year in several portions of the peninsula. Rain clouds have not been spotted for days, and sweltering temperatures even activated a heat advisory yesterday for parts of north Florida.

Although the remainder of the week will continue hot, with temperatures in the mid to upper 90's, there will be late afternoon relief. As a large ridge of high pressure moves northeast, moisture will increase and sea breezes will begin to march further inland.

Shower and thunderstorms will begin developing off the coasts, with the strongest of rain beginning after 3pm near and along I-75. After 5pm, thunderstorms are likely over highway 301 and in central Florida, mainly over and north of the I-4 corridor. These storms will likely last until the late evening hours, but tapper off by midnight.
