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.
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.
