8/10 – Rob Knight’s Monday Morning/Workweek Forecast
High-pressure building to the east around central Florida will shape the forecast through much of the week ahead. The humid flow will bring high heat indices to the area along with daily showers and t-storms. Over land, most convection will occur during the afternoon hours each day, with drier overnight hours. Models continue bounce back and forth regarding moisture levels available for convection. If there is a preferred day for higher rain chances at this point, it would probably be Thursday (at around 70 percent), as that’s when moisture levels are expected to be the highest. Temperatures should trend towards the upper end of guidance for highs as long as thunderstorm development continues to be a mainly afternoon event.
