Florida Division of Emergency Management - Weekly Report September 11-14, 2012•Fall has arrived in North Florida this week after a cold front pushed
through the area. This front will likely continue moving southward and
weakening over the southern Peninsula through the week. High
pressure will build in behind it and this will bring plenty of sunshine to the
state each day this week.

•There will still be a minimal chance for an isolated shower and storm
over South Florida through the week, but most areas will stay dry and
breezy. With increasing winds out of the east, winds may gust as high as
15 to 20 mph each day this week.

•With plenty of sunshine in the forecast high temperatures will peak in
the upper 80s to low 90s statewide and the fall-like feel will really be in
place during the overnight hours. Lows will dip into the mid to upper 60s
throughout most of North Florida and into the mid to upper 70s across
•With great beach weather in the forecast this week, our main concern
will be rip currents. Increasing onshore flow along the Atlantic Coast and
lingering ocean swells from the distant tropical systems will bring a
moderate to high rip current risk along the entire Atlantic Coast. These
same strong easterly winds will push wave heights up to 3-5 feet in the
Gulf and near 4-7 feet along the East Coast. An elevated risk of rip
currents will also be possible along the Panhandle Coastline through the
week and we encourage everyone to pay attention to flags and warnings
signs posted along the beach. Swimming within sight of a lifeguard is
always the safest way to swim.

•Looking at the tropics, while they are quite active this week we are not
expecting any direct tropical impacts throughout the Sunshine State.
Both Leslie and Michael are expected to stay well to our east while they
travel in a general northward motion and weaken this week. The new
system in the central Atlantic is also expected to stay far from Florida as
it curves north of the Leeward Islands later this week.
