AM Rains Along Florida’s East Coast And Afternoon Storms On The Gulf Coast

Wednesday features some morning showers in the east coast metro area, while the Gulf coast will be sunny to start.  Then look for afternoon storms to develop on a brisk Atlantic sea breeze and push westward into the interior and the Gulf coast.  Periods of heavy rain are possible, and some locations near the Gulf coast, in particular, could see localized flooding.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the upper 80s along the Gulf coast.
