Delightful for Most of South; Some Florida Showers

High pressure building into the South will usher plenty of dry air and sunshine into most of the South today.

Highs will be near normal in the 60s and 70s across the rest of the region.

The sunny and seasonable weather will be a nice change for the eastern Carolinas and eastern Virginia, where thick clouds and drizzle put a damper on Monday's weather.

Meanwhile, a front stalled across south-central Florida will mark the clash of warm, humid air to the south and slightly cooler air farther north.

The result will be some scattered showers across that portion of the peninsula.

Vero Beach will again have the chance for some showers during the afternoon or evening hours after receiving a record rainfall of 2.43 inches on Monday.

This broke the old daily rainfall record of 1.28 inches set in 1982.

This amount of rain is also 80 percent of the normal rainfall for the entire month of November, which is 3.04 inches.

This is a big change for Vero Beach, since October went down as the driest on record there.
