Major Changes

Posted by Brent Cameron

A drastic weather change is on the way.  As the week continues, south Florida will experience something rare:  a steady surge of brisk air spilling down from the north!   The "main batch" of winter-type air will follow a strong cold front crossing late Wednesday.  How cold will it get?   Nighttime lows will settle back into the 40s (for at least a couple nights) while daytime highs struggle to reach even 60-degrees.   Keep in mind, temperatures this season have been exceptionally warm.  Further, when we've had a little encounter with cooler conditions, they just haven't lasted very long! 

Here's a satellite image which indicates two distinct lines of clouds.  The plume of clouds is with a WEAK cold front that extends across central and south Florida.  This initial boundary will only create a small drop in temperature (into Wednesday).  Then, the second front will be the one that actually brings us the "real chill".

What's unique about this particular weather pattern is that we'll get a "persistent" air flow from the north.   This continued connection will make for a lengthy cooling trend... as the cool spell will even hold into next week!

Cold Stays

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

The cold weather is coming and it will be here to stay for a few days! You head that right... At least we will be able to give those AC's a break through the weekend and possibly the upcoming week. A series of fronts are set to move in to keep us feeling the chill South Florida style!

Just last week, south Florida had a dose of "rare air" with a brief chilly change.   For a short time, we received our coldest temperatures since last March!   Now, we're tracking another strong cold front that ALSO has a high chance of dropping temperatures about 20-degrees (or more)!   The coldest time frame will be from late Wednesday night through Friday afternoon.  In fact, wake-up readings on Friday morning will range from the lower 40s inland, to the middle and upper 40s between the metro areas and beach locations!

Cool Pattern Coming

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, I know the weather did not disappoint!

Monday has started on the right foot. Mostly dry and sunny with seasonal temperatures is underway! By tomorrow, some changes will take place. We will need the rain gear mainly for the afternoon because some showers will be in the forecast. This is due to a cold front on the move and expected to clear early Wednesday. After the first front moves through, a series of them will follow. Sometime on Wednesday, a reinforcing front will move through South Florida and help to draw in cooler air. We could actually wake up in the upper 40s to low 50s on Thursday. The coldest morning will be Friday. However, over the weekend another front will arrive and keep us cool with below normal temperatures... so South Florida get ready because a cool pattern is coming and one that will last for more than one day!
