Happy Sunday!

All thanks to the area of low pressure right off the coast of Florida we’ve seen breezy winds along out coast with winds east northeast 15-20 mph gusts 25+.

Our afternoon highs have climbed into the upper 80s low 90s with feel-like temperatures in the mid 90s.

The weather has been wonderful and many flocked to the beach ready to soak up the sun in the steamy summer heat.

Due to strong onshore flow and breezy northeast winds we’ll see a high rip current risk along our Florida beaches through the weekend.

When heading to the beach you’ll want to prepare for rough surf up to 4′ and high rip currents. Just like Saturday, the single red flags will be posted along the beach. For your safety it’s best to set up camp near a lifeguard.

Our rain chances we’re limited this evening as the area of low pressure stayed offshore.

Monday we’ll switch things up as the disturbance starts tracking northwest right off the Florida Georgia coast. This will increase the rain chances along coastal southeast Georgia Monday morning with some locations seeing 1-2″ of rainfall.

Starting Monday we’ll transition to a wet weather pattern with our rain chances steadily increasing to 70% chance by Wednesday.
