Satellite imagery over Florida shows a continuing the trend of drier air moving east to west from the western Atlantic. The surface ridge high pressure ridge can be seen by tracing the low-level cumulus clouds over the ocean and developing over the peninsula. The presence of drier air will reduce the coverage over showers and thunderstorms developing along the sea breezes. The highest moisture content and coverage of showers and thunderstorms will be over north Florida and panhandle regions.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows the surface ridge axis moving northward towards central Florida. Drier air originating from the Bahamas is moving towards the east coast of Florida which will decrease the overall coverage of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Deepest moisture and greatest areal coverage will be over northern Florida.
Satellite imagery over Florida again shows early convection along the west and southern coastlines with the activity spreading eastward throughout the afternoon as heating and additional boundaries set up. Also note the smoke from U.S. west coast fires over Georgia.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows the sign of another active convective day across the state. Morning storms over the eastern Gulf are producing outflow boundaries which along with daytime heating, abundant moisture, and additional sea breeze boundaries will produce widespread thunderstorms over the peninsula.
Satellite imagery over the Tropical Atlantic. No active tropical systems at this time.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows a similar scenario as yesterday. Showers and thunderstorms developing relatively early in the day and moving towards the southeast. Upper level anvil cloud level winds are generally in the opposite direction once again, towards the west and northwest.
Satellite imagery over Florida showing showers and thunderstorms quickly traveling towards the southeast while the upper level anvil clouds travel in the opposite direction.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows pockets of Saharan dust beginning to thin out over the region. Surface ridge axis can be seen from the low-level clouds over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Upper level winds are from east to west as seen from the small thunderstorm cluster over the Bahamas.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows Saharan dust over the Bahamas and south Florida. Also of note is the surface ridge axis by the appearance of low-level cumulus clouds. This feature is again shifting southward, now located east to west from the Atlantic to near Lake Okeechobee.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows an impressive outflow boundary emanating from thunderstorms over extreme south Florida. Otherwise another low coverage of showers and thunderstorms expected with a majority accumulating over interior and western sections of the peninsula by late afternoon and early evening.
