Easterly winds currently transporting deep #Atlantic moisture into #Florida, igniting rain producing clouds along the The Florida Keys & Key West

Same Atlantic flow plus Gulf of Mexico moisture piggybacking on the southeastern and southerly winds into the interior Gulf Coast and Southeast U.S. states, pooling in the vicinity of the slowly northward drifting frontal boundary.

Daytime heating will further induce instability in the region, igniting showers and #thunderstorms today and tonight.  Some showers and storms will produce locally heavy rains, with flooding may be a concern in some areas.
