Typical Tuesday

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

*Strong storms possible this afternoon. Localized flooding as well in parts.

Hopefully everyone had a wonderful long holiday weekend. A typical Tuesday is underway with a quiet start. By the afternoon, some showers and storms expected, but they will be slow moving due to the light ocean breeze we have in place. Moisture levels are thinning out and fewer storms can be expected for Wednesday and Thursday with the breeze picking up between 10-15mph.

Our forecast on Friday and Saturday, will depend on the tropics. We are closely watching the progress of a broad area of low pressure currently located over the Eastern Caribbean Sea into the tropical Atlantic Ocean. A handful of the models take it through Hispaniola and Cuba in the next 5 days and another batch have it curving North and remaining in the Atlantic Ocean.  However, our rain chances for the weekend will need to be adjusted accordingly.

Rest of the Tropics:

-A wave over the Yucatan have a low chance to develop in the next 2 days. It will have a medium chance to develop as it moves over the Bay of Campeche down the road. Mexico should closely watching this one.

-Off the West coast of Africa we have another wave that has a low chance to develop in the next 5 days.

Have a great day South Florida and make it a safe one!

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!

WINTER CHILL: COMING SOON

Posted by Brent Cameron

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!
