Florida Weather 6/19/2017

Visible satellite imagery over Florida shows a large feed of showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical disturbance over the Yucatan Channel.  This entire area will move northward into the Gulf of Mexico over the next couple of days.  Heavy rainfall can be expected mainly along the Gulf Coast sections of Florida.  Convergent bands along with daytime heating will trigger showers and thunderstorms across the peninsula.  Steering level winds will push all activity quickly from SE to NW.

Florida Weather 6/14/2017

Visible satellite imagery over Florida shows an unstable moist atmosphere in place with showers and thunderstorms already developing along the east coast and south Florida.  Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage as daytime heating and sea breezes trigger activity.  Light steering level winds from the south to southwest will result in general NNE storm movement.

Florida Weather 6/13/2017

Visible satellite imagery over Florida continues to show widespread moisture and cloud cover.  Areas where there are breaks in the cloud cover will quickly allow daytime and heating and sea breezes from both coasts to trigger showers and thunderstorm in the warm, humid, unstable air mass.  Weak surface and steering level winds winds will allow thunderstorms to focus and accumulate across interior sections of the peninsula by late afternoon and evening.

Florida Weather 6/12/2017

Satellite imagery across the continental U.S. continues to show a large feed of tropical moisture across the Yucatan, Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Coast States, and Florida.  Over Florida a weak overall steering wind field will lead to slow and erratic moving storms.  Thunderstorms will develop along both sea breezes and accumulate over the interior of the peninsula by late afternoon and evening.

Florida Weather 6/8/2017

Visible satellite imagery over Florida shows a mid latitude, surface to upper level trough of low pressure across central portions of the state.  Tall, deeper clouds indicating showers and thunderstorms were located south of the I-4 corridor while lower level and shallower clouds were located over north Florida.  The entire trough will generally remain over the state while weakening and eventually lifting out with time.

Florida Weather 6/7/2017

Visible satellite imagery across Florida reveals the upper level mid latitude trough now over the Panhandle region with lines of showers and thunderstorms continuing to develop and race towards the NE.  A strong to potentially severe line of thunderstorms stretches from Jacksonville to Tampa and offshore Gulf of Mexico.  This line will impact central and eastern Florida by later this morning and early afternoon while another large area continues to impact south Florida and The Keys.
