Quick Weather Update

I have to leave for work soon, so I need to make this short and sweet. Surface maps from the HPC show the front nearly stationary over south Florida with a 1008 mb low between Key West and Cuba with another weak low southeast of Andros Island in the Bahamas (see NOAA/HPC map below).


Radar and satellite imagery show some signs of a counterclockwise turn with this system over Florida. This is bringing a reversal of direction of rain from yesterday - moderate to heavy showers are moving in from the east with the heaviest activity over Flagler County. Expect this heavy activity to move in later this morning and throughout the day.

Due to the tight pressure gradient between the high to the north and the developing low to the south, winds could be a little stronger than ususal today. Winds are expected to be between 15 to 20 mph with gusts as high as 30.
