...Locally Dense Smoke Impacting Roadways Near Rockledge...

...Above Normal Storm Coverage Again Today...

Smoke from a lightning-induced wildfire near Rockledge yesterday
continues to burn and smolder this morning. High humidity and light
winds shifting southwest will cause smoke to spread and cross over
Interstate 95 posing a significant hazard to driving with
visibilities capable of dropping to below one-quarter mile within
short distances. Select roads in the vicinity may be closed for the
morning commute. The hazard will persist beyond sunrise into the mid-

A weakening frontal trough will slowly sag toward Central Florida.
This boundary...combined with afternoon heating and associated
moisture...will again support storms with above normal coverage
today. Showers and storms will become scattered to numerous during
the afternoon and into this evening...further augmented by the sea
breeze and outflow boundary interactions. Storms will be generally
slow in movement and will have the potential for locally heavy rain
and frequent lightning. A few locations could realize several inches
of rain. Storm motion will be generally toward the northeast around
10 mph.

It will be hot and humid with high temperatures in the upper 80s to
lower 90s. easterly swell will promote a moderate risk of rip currents
at area beaches. If going to the sure to swim near a
lifeguard while keeping an eye on the sky.
