Dry air is working into the region and this will practically wipe out any chance of rain the next few days north of Tampa Bay. A few isolated late afternoon evening showers may pop up well south of the Bay. Dry air will make for a comfortable night. Look for low humidity in the and morning temps in the 60s to 70 at the coast. The afternoon heat will push temperatures well into the 90s the upcoming days with a warm east breeze. Showers should hold off most of the work week as we lay under the backside of a upper level trough. The wetter side will be over Miami, Bahamas and off the east coast.
Tropical Storm Alberto has 40 mph winds and is located 85 miles ENE of St. Augustine Florida Sunday at 11 pm. Tropical Storm Alberto is not expected to become a hurricane. Dry air is holding back intensification and it may suck the life out of the system Monday. It should drift off the Georgia Coast through Monday and then kick out to the NE over open Atlantic waters near Cape Hatteras Tuesday if it holds together. Rain has been falling over parts of Coastal Georgia and Northeast Florida from this system Sunday. But those effects are over and the system will have little impact on the states except for epic surf. http://911surfreport.com/2012/05/20/sunday-1230-pm-update/
This was the earliest a storm has formed since 2003 when tropical storm Ana formed in April.
