Forecast for Saturday 06.13.2009

It's been a few days since my last forecast. I was in Atlanta for a rare tour of The Weather Channel (thanks to Stephanie Abrams!) and for most of the Inland Impacts of Tropical Cyclones conference. I will have a post with some photos of the trip on the main blog sometime this weekend.

The weather today has been pretty calm in north Florida mostly due to high pressure in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. It has stave off any rain in the area and it's likely to be the case for Saturday.

A weak frontal trough will aproach the area from the north and may aid in spawning isolated afternoon storms according to the latest NWS-JAX forecast discussion. The NAM and GFS models point out some shower activity (mostly on the NE side of the state). I'm thinking it's less likely since NWS-JAX is calling for a 30 percent chance of rain for the GNV area.

For tonight, mostly clear conditions with a morning low of 72. For Saturday, expect partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of a shower and storm. I'm calling for a high of 94.
