D I V I S I O N O F E M E R G E N C Y M A N A G E M E N T RICK SCOTT Governor BRYAN W. KOON Director F L O R I D A R E C O V E R Y O F F I C E • D I V I S I O N H E A D Q U A R T E R S • STATE LOGISTICS RESPONSE CENTER :  Weekly Weather Report 12/11/2012•A cold front will stall over the northern-central Peninsula on Tuesday and for
a portion of the day on Wednesday before finally moving southward through
South Florida late Wednesday. The energy associated with the front will
combine with plenty of moisture over the area and a disturbance passing
through the area to allow scattered to numerous showers and storms to
develop. Once the front finally moves south of the state, high pressure with
cooler and drier conditions will move in to finish off the work week.

•Rain chances will be quite high over most of the state on Tuesday and
Wednesday as the front stalls over Central Florida but these rain chances will
quickly diminish on Thursday and Friday as high pressure builds in. As the
front stalls over the area on Tuesday, the Storm Prediction Center has
highlighted Central Florida as an area that has a Slight Risk for severe
weather. While widespread severe weather is not likely, a few of the
developing storms may produce frequent and dangerous lightning strikes and
strong and potentially damaging winds. It is important for all residents and
visitors to stay weather-aware by listening to a NOAA-All Hazards Weather
Radio or your local news media when severe weather is in the forecast.

•Overall rainfall amounts will likely be near an inch and a half or less
throughout Central Florida on Tuesday. Even though this is quite a bit of rain
in a short period of time, since this portion of the state is experiencing a
rainfall deficit, flooding is not a concern.
•High temperatures will stay rather warm on Tuesday with only the extreme
Western Panhandle experiencing the cooler air behind the front. By
Wednesday and Thursday, once the front pushes through an area, and also
due to heavier cloud cover, temperatures will fall a bit from the summery feel
that we experienced last week. Then, by Friday our high temperatures will
begin to rebound once again.

•For our overnight forecast, with just enough humidity in the air and decreasing wind speeds, areas of patchy to locally dense fog will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Some locations may see visibilities fall to dangerous levels so we encourage anyone who plans to drive overnight or in the pre-dawn hours to use caution, turn on your low-beam headlights, and to slow-down when approaching an area of lower visibilities.
•Our overnight temperatures will fall the most after the cold front and this will really be felt across the state by mid week. A few locations of the Panhandle will fall into the 40s Tuesday night, but most of the state will stay in the 50s and 60s. By Wednesday and Thursday nights, we can expect lows to dip into the 40s and 50s throughout most of North and Central Florida, then by Friday night, much like the daytime temperatures, our lows will begin to warm.

•Developing strong onshore winds along the Atlantic Coast on Thursday and Friday will bring rough surf and a moderate to high risk of rip currents to the beaches of the First Coast through the Gold Coast. Although the surf is quite chilly, we encourage anyone who plans to swim in the ocean to look for warning signs and flags before entering the surf and to stay out of the water when red flags are flying. To ensure that you have the most enjoyable Florida beach experience, please swim within sight of a lifeguard.
