TONIGHT...THE SHORTWAVE IN THE WESTERN GULF WILL MOVE EASTWARD WITH ITS ATTENDING GULF LOW. AT THE SAME TIME...THE FAVORABLE AREA OF ISENTROPIC ASCENT THAT WAS OVER SOUTH FLORIDA TODAY WILL MOVE NORTH ALONG OUR EASTERN ZONES WITH LIGHT SHOWER ACTIVITY INCREASING. OVERNIGHT...THE WEAK GULF LOW WILL MOVE FROM WEST TO EAST INTO OUR FORECAST AREA PROVIDING OUR WESTERN AND CENTRAL ZONES WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE SHOWER ACTIVITY. AS THIS SYSTEM CONTINUES TO MOVE EAST AND INTERACTS WITH THE REGION OF OPTIMAL ISENTROPIC ASCENT...RAINFALL WILL BECOME A BIT HEAVIER AND MORE STEADY. BOTTOM LINE BEING...WESTERN LOCATIONS LOOK TO RECEIVE A QUARTER OF AN INCH OF RAIN OR LESS WHILE CENTRAL TO EASTERN LOCATIONS WILL GET A QUARTER OF AN INCH TO 3/4 OF AN INCH OF RAIN THE FURTHER EAST YOU GO. TUESDAY...RAIN WILL COME TO AN END QUICKLY ACROSS MOST OF OUR LOCAL AREA TOMORROW MORNING WITH SLIGHT RAIN CHANCES LINGERING INTO THE AFTERNOON FOR EXTREME NORTHEAST LOCATIONS. CLOUDS WILL SLOWLY CLEAR FROM THE WEST TO THE EAST THROUGH THE DAY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 50S TO THE NORTH TO LOWER 60S FURTHER SOUTH. WEDNESDAY...THIS WILL BE OUR DRY DAY BETWEEN STORM SYSTEMS HIGH TEMPS WILL BE IN THE MID 60S ACROSS THE REGION WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES. BY LATE AFTERNOON A DECK OF CIRRUS CLOUDS WILL BEGIN TO MOVE IN FROM THE WEST IN RESPONSE TO THE ADVANCING GULF LOW.
