DISCUSSION...
Continue to observe upper ridging stretched from the W Gulf of
Mexico across the FL Peninsula and into the W Atlantic today that
will hold in place through Tuesday then sink slightly southward as
AN upper trough moves through the Great Lakes into New England.

At the surface, weakening high pressure will continue to keep
mainly dry conditions in place. But there is still enough
moisture over S FL to keep a slight chance of showers into SW FL
and adjacent coastal waters.

By mid week, a weak cold front will sag into N FL and stall over
the FL Peninsula as limited upper support moves out of the region.
Low level flow to become more southerly to bring moisture back
into the area and combine with frontal lift for a chance of
showers and thunderstorms to develop mainly in the afternoons
through the end of the work week and into the weekend.

MARINE...
Weakening high pressure will remain in the area with easterly
winds and brief evening surges through early week. By mid-week a
weak cold front will sag and settle in the area with winds
shifting SE-S and a chance of rain.

FIRE WEATHER...
Dry conditions will continue with min RHs in the 45-50 percent
range through the next few days. By mid-week a weak cold front
will sag and settle in the area with a chance of rain. Some
shallow overnight field fog is possible but no significant fog is
expected.
