Today brings us more of the same.  Less of a chance of seabreeze storms, seems the trough is weakening and the mid levels are warmer than yesterday.  This discourages convection.  While yesterday was quite active in some areas, there was definitely a lack of lightning and widespread organization.  The past two days have been basically popcorn type storms consolidating.

FOR TODAY...A WEAK SURFACE TROUGH PERSISTS ACROSS THE REGION WITH
A NORTHWESTERLY FLOW GENERALLY LESS THAN 10 KNOTS TO PERSIST ACROSS
THE AREA. ALTHOUGH THE AFOREMENTIONED MID TROPOSPHERIC TROUGH
PERSISTS ACROSS THE REGION...IT IS NOT EXPECTED TO HAVE MUCH
IMPACT ON THE POTENTIAL FOR CONVECTION ACROSS THE REGION. THE MID
TROPOSPHERIC TEMPERATURES HAVE WARMED A FEW DEGREES SINCE
YESTERDAY AND THE TROUGH IS NOT IN A FAVORABLE POSITION TO
CONTRIBUTE TO ANY DYNAMICS THAT WOULD ENHANCE CONVECTION ACROSS
THE AREA. BUT GIVEN LINGERING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE ACROSS THE
AREA...SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
TODAY...BUT MAINLY ACROSS THE EASTERN HALF OF THE PENINSULA WITH
THE AFOREMENTIONED NORTHWESTERLY FLOW. AND GUIDANCE INDICATES
CONVECTION OCCURRING LATER IN THE AFTERNOON OR EARLY EVENING.

So less possibility than yesterday, less active, and the SB will not penetrate as far.
