GOES EAST GeoColor satellite imagery over Florida. Surface to mid level east to west oriented high pressure ridge axis has shifted slightly to the north and is now lying across the south central peninsula. In turn the deepest moisture has also shifted northward with drier air now over the southern half of the peninsula. This will lower the overall coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms over the southern half. A majority of the activity will be north of the I-4 corridor where again the deepest moisture now exists. Steering level winds will continue to direct this activity towards the northeast.
