Tropics Quiet, Windy Conditions Continue Monday

October 19, 2015

An area of disturbed weather near the Yucatan Peninsula is being monitored for possible tropical development by the National Hurricane Center and the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network.  However, at this time, the chances are very low that it will become anything tropical in nature.  It's also unlikely to influence the weather across the State of Florida. Elsewhere in the Atlantic Basin, no tropical storm formation is expected in the next five days.

High pressure continues to be in charge across Florida, and the dry pattern will continue statewide through the work week. Breezy conditions are expected along the Atlantic coast through Monday evening, where sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph are possible, with gusts as high as 40 mph immediately along the coast.  The winds will also create dangerous wave conditions, with a high risk of rip currents through Monday evening.
