No Sunshine in the Sunshine State
Heading to Disney World? Checking out South Beach? Visiting Cape Canaveral? You might want to wait until Thursday to check out the big sites in Florida, because rain will hamper many outdoor activities for both Tuesday and Wednesday.
A slow-moving front will kick up showers and a few rumbles of thunder for Florida on Tuesday, particularly from the I-4 corridor on south. On Wednesday morning a final surge of moisture will move through far southern Florida, paving the way for sunnier skies for the rest of the week. Fog will shroud much of the Florida panhandle through Tuesday, as well.
The Atlantic side of Florida appears to be most in line to get some of the heavier rainfall. Savannah, Georgia, an hour’s drive north of the Florida-Georgia border, set a daily record on Monday with 1.89″ of rainfall, and some of that moisture is poised to move into the Sunshine State.
Temperatures will drop by the end of the week even for Miami, where highs have reached or eclipsed the daily average for 28 of the past 29 days. That streak figures to end by Friday, when highs will ‘only’ be in the low 70s (average high: 76), but under plenty of beautiful sunshine! Weekend activities in Florida figure to enjoy plenty of sunshine with seasonable temperatures.
