Regional Weather: lower Southeast U.S.

Continued dry and warm. High pressure situated to the north, and later northeast and east, governs the weather for the next several days. Dry weather is dominant. There will be a small chance of showers in southern FL Saturday and Sunday and perhaps the FL panhandle on Sunday. Highs in the 80s, lows mostly in the 60s.

 

OUTLOOK:

Overview: Epidemic spread unlikely. Unfavorable conditions are observed and forecast for the various transport events, with sunshine killing airborne spores and no rain expected. Events are tracking generally west each day from each source. The slightly favorable conditions in southern FL produce some small risk there.
