Isolated showers will move east across the region through the evening. Briefly heavy rain will be possible in affected areas with around a half an inch of rain in 15 to 30 minutes. Coverage should further diminish after 730 PM.
A stalled out frontal boundary across the central peninsula has a weak impulse moving along it. This is expected to lead to a large area of showers from Lake county to Volusia county. The showers will be slow moving and one inch of rainfall is possible along with isolated lightning strikes. Closer to the front from Orlando and Kissimmee to Cape Canaveral and Melbourne, where more surface heating was occurring, a few stronger storms are expected with rainfall amounts over 2 inches locally.
Look for scattered showers and storms moving to the east at 15 to 20 mph across areas southward to Okeechobee and the Treasure Coast. The quicker storm motion should limit rainfall amounts there to one inch or less, but if the east coast sea breeze sets up, a few stronger storms could generate higher amounts to near 2 inches.
A weak frontal boundary lingered offshore Cape Canaveral and extended across central Florida. Considerable cloudiness was lingering along and north of the boundary. This will limit surface heating this morning, but by afternoon scattered showers and isolated storms should break out near the boundary and also in association with the east coast sea breeze.
Areas southward to around Lake Okeechobee will have less morning cloudiness but showers should remain isolated there too. The east coast sea breeze will generate isolated showers and storms by early afternoon there.
With quite high moisture across most of east central Florida and more boundary interactions, afternoon storms should produce heavier rainfall than yesterday, mainly along and south of the weak frontal boundary.
A stationary frontal boundary is draped across central Florida this morning, extending roughly from Tampa to Orlando to Titusville. Isolated showers will move toward the east and northeast along and south of this boundary across portions of Osceola, Orange, Okeechobee and Martin counties. North of the boundary, isolated showers over the Atlantic will slowly push westward and cross portions of the Volusia coast. Most areas will remain dry through 10 am but a few locations will see a brief downpour.
A moist atmosphere remains in place and scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected to develop this afternoon with locally heavy rain.
