DRIER IN THE LOWER TO MID LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE WAS LIMITING
CONVECTIVE COVERAGE THUS FAR THIS AFTERNOON. SLIGHTLY HIGHER
MOISTUTER LEVELS ACROSS NORTHERN BREVARD AND VOLUSIA COUNTIES AND
THE CHANCE FOR SOME THUNDERSTORMS TO MOVE SOUTHEAST FROM NORTH
FLORIDA WILL KEEP THE RISK FOR ISOLATED SHOWERS AND STORMS ACROSS
THESE AREAS. ALONG THE TREASURE COAST...THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE WAS
BEGINNING TO MOVE ONSHORE ACROSS MARTIN AND SOUTHERN ST. LUCIE COUNTY
BUT THE DRIER AIRMASS IN THIS REGION SHOULD PRECLUDE MUCH CONVECTIVE
DEVELOP THERE INTO LATE AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WERE RISING INTO THE
LOWER TO MID 90S AT 3 PM AND WILL REMAIN VERY WARM THROUGH EARLY
EVENING.
