I'm going to have to look up where your hometown is. I'm still trying to get all the Florida locations straight even though we've been down here for more than 4 years. :redface:

I'm in between Orlando and Tampa and it was magnificent today. The high temp was around 78 with a light breeze and lots of sunshine. There was a little patchy fog this morning but it was out of here by 8/8:30.

When I was out this a.m. I could see what looked like smog up to the north of us. I guess that was your weather. :wink:

Navarre is about 15 miles west of Ft. Walton beach and 25 miles east of Pensacola. Tonight we were socked in with fog (yet again), and some drizzle also fell (enough to coat the pavement).

Supposed to clear out tomorrow, but temps in the forecast were knocked down from the low 70s to upper 60s.

Looks like another great day once the fog lifts, highs in the upper 60 and partly cloudy with 20% chance of rain.

I think ya'll up north had a frontal boundary move down and stall north of us here in west central Florida which would explain the fog and drizzle.

We've had some fog in the early morning, but the weather has been pleasant after it warmed back up.

Clouds finally broke up and it is sunny, bright, and warm for a change! Forecast had a few showers today, but nary a drop detected on radar when I've looked...

.SHORT TERM...(TODAY AND TONIGHT)...LATEST SFC MAP SHOWS HIGH
PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE FL PANHANDLE AND NE GULF. A LIGHT
SOUTHERLY FLOW WHICH DEVELOPED YESTERDAY HAS CONTINUED FOR MUCH OF
THE NIGHT GIVING WAY TO SLIGHTLY BETTER MOISTURE RETURN AND WARMER
TEMPS THAN EARLIER ANTICIPATED. AS A RESULT THE HARD FREEZE WARNING
HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR INLAND SOUTHWEST ALABAMA AND MOST AREAS OF
INLAND NORTHWEST FLORIDA...EXCEPT THE INLAND AREAS OF OKALOOSA
COUNTY. TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY FALL BELOW HARD FREEZE CRITERIA IN
THESE AREAS DUE TO THE POSITION OF THE SFC RIDGE AND SOIL TYPE. FOR
THE REMAINDER OF TODAY TEMPERATURES WILL REBOUND TO NEAR SEASONAL
LEVELS AS ONSHORE FLOW BECOMES BETTER DEVELOPED AS SFC RIDGE
CONTINUES TO SHIFT SLOWLY EAST. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL CLIMB TO THE
MID 60S FOR MOST AREAS EXCEPT ALONG THE IMMEDIATE WHERE COOLER NEAR
SHORE SEAS SURFACE TEMPS COMBINED WITH BETTER SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL
HELP KEEP TEMPS DOWN TO THE UPPER 50S TO LOWER 60S. FOR TONIGHT
EXPECT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AS UPPER RIDGE BUILDS IN FROM THE WEST.
PATCHY FOG WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE NEAR THE COAST LATE TONIGHT AND
EARLY SAT FROM BETTER ONSHORE FLOW. STAYED CLOSE TO THE CURRENT

DEGREES TONIGHT GENERALLY FROM CRESTVIEW TO EVERGREEN AND EASTWARD

.LONG TERM...(SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY)...DRY AND MILD CONDITIONS
CAN BE EXPECTED INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK AS A LARGE UPPER RIDGE
DOMINATES THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES. A COLD FRONT WILL STALL WEST OF
THE AREA ON TUESDAY AS THE UPPER SHORTWAVE AND SFC LOW ARE DEFLECTED
WELL NORTH OF THE REGION DUE TO THE STRONG RIDGE. A STRONGER UPPER
SHORTWAVE WILL EJECT OUT OF THE DESERT SOUTHWEST ON WEDNESDAY. THIS
WILL CAUSE CYCLOGENESIS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS THAT WILL MOVE
NORTHEAST AND SEND A TRAILING COLD FRONT ACROSS THE CENTRAL GULF
COAST WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A FEW SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE ON
TUESDAY AS MOISTURE RAPIDLY INCREASES AHEAD OF THE DEVELOPING LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM WITH THE BEST CHANCES OF RAIN COMING WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON AND EVENING AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT. TEMPERATURES COOL
BACK TO NEAR NORMAL IN THE WAKE OF THE FRONT. /13

Mild weather returning is sorely welcomed...

Our last thunderstorm was in early January. Even since then, we've had maybe 1.50 inches of rain.

Jeff Masters wrote on his blog that a La Nina set up last month and that all of us on the Gulf Coast and Florida should expect below normal precipitation through March. So far that prediction has held true.

Yea, but we've had way below normal rainfall from late August on to this point of time and none forecasted for the next 7 days here.

So if we stay below normal (and I don't doubt that we will), we're going to need a lot to hold off the spring wildfires around here or it's going to get bad.

Looks like we get a couple of really nice days then the rain moves in. Highs near 70 today, tomorrow, and Tuesday.

Embedded thunderstorms with the rain on and off from 1 am to about 9 am sunday morning. La Nina has done a good job keeping us dry this winter, so the rain was welcome.

A little more rain yesterday morning, but it ended abruptly and skies cleared before sunset.

Looks like the 50s are back in the forecast for highs this week (major ugh!).
