After a stormy week over East Central Florida, we are tracking the arrival of a drier weather pattern for the area over the weekend. Much better weather is expected through the middle of next week with plenty of sunshine and warm, dry weather in the forecast. A weak cold front moved through the area today, bringing a drier and even slightly cooler air mass into the region for tonight and then into the rest of holiday weekend.
Today, strong onshore winds will develop, as high pressure builds back north of the region. The fresh wind off of the Atlantic Ocean will keep temperatures a few degrees lower than we have seen over the last couple of days, with highs in the lower 80s along the coast, and middle 80s over interior counties. A similar weather pattern is expected through the rest of the holiday weekend. Persistent onshore winds may bring a shower or two to the coast, mainly south of the Cape; otherwise expect a dry forecast over most of the region.
Onshore winds will allow the surf to build this weekend and produce somewhat hazardous boating conditions along our coast for several days. Rip current threat remains elevated.
