Visible satellite imagery over Florida shows mainly fair weather cumulus clouds developing across the peninsula. A diffuse east coast sea breeze can be seen developing along the southern half of the coast while a few showers were developing along the west coast sea breeze in the big bend region of the state. Surface and upper level ridge axis remains oriented east to west across the center portions of the state resulting in an overall low coverage of showers and thunderstorms over interior sections by late afternoon and evening.
Satellite imagery over Florida and the continental U.S. shows a majority of the country experiencing a rain free holiday. An upper level disturbance stretching from Missouri to the Mid-Atlantic is producing the only concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms. Locally the Florida Keys and South Florida will see a majority of the activity today. Happy and Safe 4th of July to all!
Visible satellite imagery over Florida reveals scattered cumulus clouds developing as day time heating increases across the state. A combination of upper level high pressure ridge axis over the state and relatively lower moisture will limit overall thunderstorm coverage for today. A few showers and thunderstorms will develop along the east coast sea breeze as it moves inland. Steering level winds are overall light so a majority of the late afternoon and evening activity will accumulate across interior sections, especially near the I-4 corridor where an old boundary and pockets of higher moisture exist.
