Next Significant Front About a Week Away

An area of showers and thunderstorms in the southern Gulf has degenerated into an open wave, and is not expected to organize into a named tropical system. The broad area of low pressure is expected to continue moving slowly northward  through the weekend before being picked up by a front early next week. This front  will be the state’s next best chance of rain, possibly producing showers and thunderstorms by the middle of next week.

In the meantime, a continuation of the recent mainly dry and warm conditions will continue through the end of the week. Spotty showers will continue to be possible along the Atlantic coast through Thursday afternoon as high pressure to our north continues to produce an onshore flow. The atmosphere will stabilize some by Friday, allowing winds to relax and rain chances to decrease. Swimmers and boaters should take note that a high risk of rip currents continues  through Thursday evening. Temperatures will be above-average statewide, with highs in the middle 80s Thursday and Friday and lows in the mid-to-upper 60s.
