Temperatures heating up; rain chances going down

Afternoon rain chances will be diminishing across the peninsula in the coming days as a strengthening flow off the Atlantic pushes in some drier air and higher pressure builds in.  Due to the spottier nature of the rain, temperatures will be on the climb and highs could reach the middle 90's for most inland areas Thursday and Friday, with the exception being southeast Florida where a stronger Atlantic sea breeze will cap highs near 90.  Despite the drier air, a weaker wind pattern will allow the sea breezes from both coasts to march inland and collide by late afternoon, producing a few locally strong thunderstorms. The highest chances for this activity will be near I-4 in central Florida and near the I-75 corridor in north Florida.
