.FOR THE EVENING UPDATE...
Strong U/L ridge and associated large scale subsidence over
the Florida peninsula aided in capping convection for much 
of the day with temperatures climbing into the mid to upper
90s in most areas away from the immediate coast. 

Scattered thunderstorms have developed this evening over 
the interior peninsula due to collision of east and west
coast sea breeze boundaries allowing sufficient lift to 
push through the mid level subsidence inversion. Combination
of significant dry air aloft and high CAPE has created a 
few strong storms with strong gusty winds and possibly small
hail...and can't rule out cell over northeast Polk county
from becoming severe over the next 15 to 30 minutes.

Skies will become mostly clear after midnight with very warm
muggy conditions remainder of the night.
