.NOW...
A frontal boundary will settle slowly down the peninsula today.
There won`t be any air mass change though, as breezy northeast
winds sweep in behind the front.  These winds will generate
convergence and a chance for heavy rainfall, especially along the
Volusia coast and around Cape Canaveral, where a Flood Watch is in
effect.  Rain chances are high areawide, and most places can expect
a period of showers with a slight chance for a lightning storm.

Marine conditions will deteriorate with northeast winds picking up
to near 20 knots behind the front, from about Sebastian Inlet
northward today.  Rough surf and a high rip current risk can be
expected from the Cape northward, while south of there to the
Treasure Coast the rip current risk is moderate.  Only enter the
ocean near a lifeguard.
