State of Florida Division of Emergency Management - Weekly Report Sept 24-30, 2012•High pressure has built into the region and this will bring plenty of sunshine to the state for most of this first full week of fall. Mostly clear skies will be in place over the Florida Panhandle each day this week. On Tuesday, South Florida will be the only portion of the state that has a chance for isolated showers and storms as rain chances stay around 30%. By Wednesday and through the end of the week, a slight increase in moisture over the entire Peninsula will bring around a 30% chance for a stray shower and storm to most areas. Not all locations will receive rainfall, and for those that do not, you can expect a mix of clouds and sun with comfortable conditions. Any shower activity that does develop over the Peninsula this week will slowly dissipate after sunset with gradual clearing conditions through the night.

•Our daytime temperatures will stay seasonable this week as highs peak in the mid to upper 80s  statewide. For the overnight lows, the slight chill in the air that was in place over the Panhandle earlier this week will slowly move out as lows stay in the mid to upper 60s for most areas north of the I-4 Corridor from Tuesday night through Friday night. South of the Interstate, expect lows to stay in the mid to upper 70s.

•With great beach weather in place we want to remind everyone to look for warning signs and flags before entering the surf. Increasing easterly winds will generate an elevated risk of rip currents along the entire Atlantic Coast through the end of the week. While there will be a lower risk for the Gulf Coast
beaches, it is important to remember that rip currents can develop anywhere and at any time, especially near piers and jetties and that all swimmers should enter the water within sight of a lifeguard whenever possible.

The tropics are slowly starting to quiet down, even though we still have over two more months left in the hurricane season. All that we are monitoring this week is long-lived Tropical Storm Nadine over the far eastern Atlantic Ocean. This storm is not expected to be a threat to the United States and will likely
stay away from any land area through at least this upcoming weekend.  Elsewhere, tropical development is not expected.
