Surface high pressure remains located near Bermuda. This will keep a predominant east wind flow across the Florida peninsula.
Winds will be a little lighter on Friday, allowing for the west coast sea breeze to make a little progress inland compared to Thursday. There will be a few showers or storms along this sea breeze later in the day, mainly for the coastal counties.
High pressure in the upper levels will continue producing hot conditions across the region, with upper 80s coastal areas to mid 90s inland. Conditions will be very similar to Thursday, so it is once again looking like we will see record setting temperatures for Friday.
The upper level ridge of high pressure over the region will break down Saturday into Sunday. Afternoon temperatures will not be quite as high.
As upper-level energy moves in from the northwest, rain chances will improve. Timing will be in the afternoons and mainly along sea breeze boundaries from both coasts.
