A tropical wave is bringing periods of rainfall to the Florida Peninsula and the Bahamas. Unsettled weather dominated Central and Southern Florida on Sunday, July 22nd. This tropical wave is moving over land as it drifts north/northwest...so, the chances are slim that it'll be able to develop into a tropical cyclone. Plus, it's encountering moderate wind shear around 20kts.
However, it will continue to bring squally weather to the Sunshine State thru at least July 24th with a rainfall average of 2-4 inches possible across parts of the peninsula (if not locally more). Eventually, the wave will get swept NE as it gets picked up & merges with a cold front (and affiliated upper level shortwave trough).
The rest of the tropics remain quiet. High wind shear 30-40 kts continues to dominate the central Caribbean Sea, and dry African Dust remains over much of the South/Central Atlantic...both are not favorable for tropical cyclone development.
