Florida Under A Flood Watch Through Monday As We Watch The Tropics Too

A flood watch is in effect for both the east coast metro area and the Gulf Coast through Monday evening.  And we’re watching a low off the central Florida coast that will bring heavy rain to much of the state, whether or not it develops into a depression.

Faith Based Events

Tuesday will be another day of showers and storms but look for sun at times.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Wednesday will feature mostly sunny skies in the morning and periods of showers and storms in the mid to late afternoon.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday’s forecast calls for good sun with periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, a low about a hundred miles east of Daytona Beach has a medium chance of developing into a depression as it lingers off the central Florida coast.  Whether it does or not, this feature will keep rain chances high for much of the state for several days.  We’ll keep an eye on it.
