Tonight-Thu...convection from late day boundary collisions and
lingering debris rain across central sections will diminish by
around midnight.

Otherwise...little change in overall pattern is indicated with low-
middle level ridge axis continuing near or just north of Lake
Okeechobee. This will provide a rather deep layer of westerly winds
and favor the eastern side of the peninsula for the most numerous
and strongest boundary collisions. Forecast soundings show some
drier air above the surface which should limit coverage to scattered
again. Middle level temperatures will remain cool so expect a few strong
storms. The afternoon rainfall and/or outflow boundaries will
provide some relief from the continued hot temperatures in the Lower-Middle


Aviation...a slight chance for storms exists for the interior
terminals through late evening then it will be VFR. Overall pattern
shows little change on Thursday so expect scattered storms to March west
to east across the peninsula again during the afternoon and evening.


tonight-Thu...the main hazard will continue to be afternoon and
evening storms that move off the coast...especially from Sebastian
Inlet northward. A few will be strong and produce gusty winds to 34
knots or greater and frequent lighting strikes.

Otherwise...a south/southwest wind around 10 knots or less is
indicated except for an afternoon sea breeze near the coast.
