Florida Weather 5/16/16

Florida visible satellite imagery shows convective clouds forming over the peninsula with concentrations along the east coast sea breeze and an E-W boundary stretching from the western Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico.  Upper level cirrus clouds can be seen across the Gulf of Mexico indicating higher winds aloft.  Clouds will continue to develop along the boundaries and become thunderstorms by early afternoon as the atmosphere becomes more moist and unstable.  The trend for a more active thunderstorm pattern will continue this week as the onset of the Florida ‘wet season’ begins.
