Friday Forecast!

Good Friday morning everyone!

It's a quiet start on VIPIR 7 Doppler radar this morning with some clouds cruising our skies.

The morning is looking like it'll be a bit cloudy, but no rain is expected until the afternoon with a few stray showers north of the bays.

We're expecting temperatures to warm up to near 90 inland with mid 80s on the coast today.

Our upper level ridging has shifted out to the east, and high pressure at the surface has moved out to the Western Atlantic. That will once again reinforce our southerly flow over the next couple days, keeping our humidity high.

However, as moisture increases the heat index will become a factor moving all of NWFL into the low to mid 90s for apparent temperatures, or the heat index.

All of the moisture and warmth will also develop a few more clouds, some of which could lead toward a few showers in the afternoons today north of the bays. The best chance looks to be north of the Choctawhatchee Bay and also in Northern Bay County.

A cold front will be heading our way into the weekend with a gradual shift to a troughing pattern aloft. This will give us more lift in the atmosphere throughout the weekend, so we can expect a bit more scattered showers or thunderstorms to develop.

Saturday looks to have a few around in the morning near the coast pushing inland throughout the day.

While Sunday may be more limited to the afternoon and Sunday night as the cold front nears.

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly cloudy skies with a stray spotty shower in the afternoon, best chance for rain will be north of the bays. Your Highs will be warm in the mid 80s on the coast and low 90s inland, with a heat index for all in the low 90s.

We'll have more rain possible on your VIPIR 7 Day forecast for the weekend and next week where rain totals by next Wednesday may reach 2-4".
