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.

Little or no rain is in the forecast through Tuesday, as the higher pressure and the dry air mass remain in place.  Temperatures will be a bit warm during the day, but the lower humidity levels mean it could feel a bit cooler. Highs will be in the low 90s over inland areas, upper 80s along the coast.  Overnight lows will dip into the upper 60s across inland areas, and hover in the lower 70s along the coasts.  Rain chances will rebound Wednesday, with typical sea breeze storms becoming the norm during the second half of the week.

Meteorologist Jeff Huffman

Meteorologist Jeff Huffman is no stranger to just about every type of weather. Growing up in Missouri, he developed a passion for understanding thunderstorms, tornadoes, and winter storms. Several personal experiences at a young age put him dangerously close to these incredible forces of nature. Upon graduating from the University of Missouri, he continued tracking the extreme weather for 8 years as the Morning Meteorologist for the ABC and FOX22 affiliates in Mid-Missouri. In 2011, he couldn't resist the challenge to head south and take on tracking tropical storms. He accepted a position with the University of Florida's Multimedia Properties as the Chief Meteorologist. He first developed a 24-hour weather, news, and sports channel whereby students can gain real-world experience on their journey to becoming broadcast meteorologists. In 2013, Jeff worked with stations all over the state to build the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network, a collaborative effort by all public media in the state to keep their audiences informed of hazardous tropical weather. In his free time, Jeff enjoys playing tennis, working out, exploring nature, and occasionally sleeping.
