Visible satellite imagery over Florida shows a mainly cloud free and dry day across the state. As was the case yesterday larger moisture content and cloud cover were higher across south Florida and The Keys where highest rain chances exist. This moisture will begin to be drawn northward as upper level low pressure evolves across the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Rain chances will increase over the next few days as this moisture combines with a weak frontal boundary moving into the southeast U.S. and projected to stall across Florida.
