Tropics Quiet, Rainy Season Winding Down

Joaquin is now far out to sea, and our active weather pattern will calm somewhat through Thursday. By late week, afternoon rain chances and increased humidity return across the Sunshine State, although storms are not expected to be heavy. Here’s a look at the next three days statewide:



A lingering area of low pressure off the Carolina coast will give way to high pressure building across the Southeast. The sinking air and northerly winds will ensure only isolated afternoon storms north of the I-4 corridor, with scattered storms across South Florida. Rip currents and choppy waters will continue to be a threat as far south as the Space Coast. High temperatures will remain normal in the low-to-mid 80s statewide.



Easterly flow off the Atlantic will bring back summer-like humidity and scattered afternoon storms to the eastern half of the state. However, strong storms are not expected and rain totals will remain below 0.25” for all but a few isolated southern areas. Highs will be warmer, in the mid to upper 80s statewide.



After a muggy morning evening with lows near 70 across the peninsula, scattered afternoon thunderstorms are likely in many areas. Continued flow off the Atlantic means that eastern areas are the most likely to see downpours, with some briefly strong storms possible. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s.
