Stalled Front Keeps Florida A Bit Cloudier, Wetter

24 Jun 2021, 4:00 am

Folks flocking to the beaches of the Sunshine State will have to dodge a few clouds, showers, and thunderstorms in order to enjoy that Vitamin D! A stalled frontal boundary across northern Florida will help organize moisture and that will lead to building clouds and rain.

The stalled frontal boundary in northern Florida will remain locked in place today (Thursday), resulting in a day that begins sunny to partly cloudy, then turns cloudier and wetter in the afternoon. Showers will be most likely along Florida’s east coast in the morning and midday, then Florida’s west coast in the afternoon and evening.

The forecast at 11 a.m. ET Thursday, June 24 showing rain in southeast Florida.
The forecast at 2 p.m. ET Thursday, June 24 showing rain in western Florida.
The forecast at 6 p.m. ET Thursday, June 24 showing rain in western Florida.

On Friday, *some* drier air will begin working its way in and help reduce the rain chances and shower coverage. Still, showers and thunderstorms will be possible and will favor the west coast of the state.

In all, one to three inches of rainfall is likely through the end of the week for many Florida cities, with isolated amounts up to three to six inches! Listen for thunder and when it roars, go indoors. If you encounter flooding turn around, don’t drown.
