Synopsis: High pressure near Bermuda continues to ridge over northern Florida. This will keep a southeast wind flow around 10 knots over the gulf coast waters for the next couple of days. Partly cloudy skies can be expected early in the day with scattered showers and storms this afternoon and again on Monday afternoon.

Gusty winds, choppy seas and dangerous lightning can be expected in the vicinity of these storms.
