.DISCUSSION...
WRAP AROUND MOISTURE AND LOW CLOUDS LOOK TO KEEP AFTERNOON HIGHS A
FEW DEGREES COOLER THAN CURRENTLY FORECAST. MID AND UPPER 70S WITH
SOME AROUND 80 LOOKS TO BE A BETTER FORECAST. THE TAMPA BAY
SOUNDING WAS SHOWING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WITH MUCH DRIER AIR ABOVE DRY
OR A CAP STARTING AT AROUND 12000/13000 FEET WHICH WILL WORK ITS
WAY INTO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA DURING THE AFTERNOON. ISOLATED LIGHT RAIN
OR SPRINKLES POSSIBLE AS THE MORNING LOW CLOUDS MOVE WEST TO EAST
OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. A FEW BREAKS IN THE CLOUD COVER THIS
AFTERNOON COULD PRODUCE DIFFERENTIAL HEATING WHICH WOULD INCREASE
THE POTENTIAL FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS THROUGH SUNSET.
