.DISCUSSION...
High pressure over South Florida will bring light easterly flow
over the spot this afternoon. Dispersion values will be poor to
fair. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
several miles inland from the coast early this afternoon and move
towards the interior during the late afternoon. Some of these
storms could produce gusty and erratic winds. However,
thunderstorm chances and winds will dwindle this evening. An
approaching low pressure system approaching from the east will
bring a much higher chance for widespread rain Saturday afternoon
through Sunday.
