High pressure building across the region through the weekend will
bring a drier pattern to South Florida. Precipitable water values
in the model soundings continue to trend lower, with values below
1.5 to 1.4 inches, in which is much lower than the average. With
the drier air mass in place the chances for showers and storms
will decrease, but not completely with models still showing a
slight chance of precipitation. Chances of isolated to scattered
showers around 20 percent during the afternoon and evenings mainly
in the interior. High temperatures will continue to be right
around 90 degrees through the weekend. Heat index values will be
near 105 out West Coast today as southeast winds sets up over the
region. A repeat of the weather conditions continues into Friday
with main chance of showers and thunderstorms interior and West
Coast in the afternoon.

Next week: a weak trough will be moving across the eastern US
with a cold front associated with it. This front will stall
across North Florida but the increase in moisture will once
again increase rain chances for Sunday and the start of the
work week. Pwats will increase to climatological values for
this time of year 1.8 and climbing to around 2 inches by
mid-week. Higher rain chances will be concentrated across the
interior and Lake Okeechobee region, as the sea breeze summertime
pattern takes over.

Ridge buids across the forecast area with high pressure in control.
Southeast winds will be 10 to 15 knots with some gust up to 20
mph. Winds will be more easterly and lighten Friday through the
weekend. Seas will gradually decrease as well generally 2 to 3
through the rest of the week and 1 to 3 this weekend. There will
still be a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms over the

days. Rain chances will begin to increase as more moisture moves
