OUTLOOK

A backdoor cold front brings active weather today and tomorrow. Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible both days with the main concern being isolated flooding or flash flooding due to heavy downpours. Isolated strong to severe storms with the potential for damaging wind gusts also cannot be ruled out. Otherwise, drier and hotter weather is in store middle of the week. Heat indices could reach the triple digits in the far southern and southeastern zones Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Another cold front could impact the area late this week into this weekend bringing shower and thunderstorm chances back into the forecast.

Hazards and Tropical Weather

Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Mon Jul 26 2021

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Satellite and radar data indicate that shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a low pressure system located about 45 miles east of St. Augustine, Florida, or about 75 miles southeast of Jacksonville, Florida, remain disorganized and limited in coverage. Environmental conditions are gradually becoming less conducive for a tropical depression to develop before the low moves inland over northeastern Florida or Georgia later this morning. However, interests in these areas should continue to monitor the progress of this system due to the possibility of brief periods of gusty winds to 40 mph, locally heavy rainfall, and dangerous lightning strikes.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.


Air quality is in the lower range of yellow for most of the county, with the ridges and other higher elevations today being in the lower range of yellow.

Fire and Smoke Map
(There is haze from the wildfires out on the west coast.)


Pollen levels are expected to be in the low range (1.0 out of 12) today with Grasses, Plantain, and Nettle being the main culprits. Tomorrow is expected to be in the low-medium range (3.1 out of 12).
