Florida to Catch a Break, Thanks to Jose

September 16, 2017

Florida will finally catch a break, and Jose is to thank for it. Lower humidity will be felt across most of the state (excluding far South Florida) starting Sunday, and there will be a notable absence of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Nighttime temperatures will be slightly more comfortable, and the days not as oppressive through Tuesday.

A snapshot of forecast moisture in the atmosphere Sunday evening.

Dry air was seen surging across the Tennessee Valley Saturday on the water vapor imagery. It will move into the state Sunday, aided by the northerly flow on the west side of Hurricane Jose. As Jose moves north, the counter-clockwise motion around the storm will allow an area of high pressure to nose south and envelope most of the Florida peninsula.
