Tropical Depression 10, Heat Advisory Sunday

Tropical Rain to come

. (.)

Tonight:  Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies and warm.  Dry conditions through the night.  Temperatures in the 80s through around midnight.

Sunday:  Hot and mainly dry end to the weekend.  Patchy fog then mostly sunny skies becoming partly cloudy late in the day.  Morning lows in the 70s to low 80s.  Afternoon highs in the 90s.  Feels like temps up to 105 degrees. Wind S/SE 5-15 mph. A Heat Advisory west of Highway 301, noon - 6 p.m.

Looking ahead: Keep a watchful eye on Tropical Depression 10.  It is projected to strengthen and shift northward into the SE Gulf of Mexico by early next week.  This system may then accelerate towards the FL panhandle, Big Bend, or Nature Coast on Wednesday as a Tropical Storm or potentially a Hurricane before reaching land.  There is still uncertainty with the overall track, intensity and local impacts.  Models are beginning to come into better agreement.  The potential hazards for NE FL and SE GA at this time are heavy rainfall, localized flooding, elevated rip currents, elevated seas and gusty winds for midweek.

Sunrise: 7:00 am

Sunset: 7:57 pm
