Staying Seasonal

Posted by Phil Ferro

Seasonal Start to September

Expect mostly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and thunderstorms in South Florida on Tuesday night. Sea breeze winds will bring a seasonal pattern of inland storms Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Tropical Trio

A tropical wave in the eastern portion of the Bay of Campeche and another one off the west coast of Africa both have low chances of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 5 days.

The one that deserves the most attention is an area of low pressure near the leeward islands accompanied by a big tropical wave. This system holds a medium (50%) chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm over the next 5 days.

If high pressure in the Atlantic strengthens over the next few days, this area of low pressure would move across the Caribbean Sea and bring heavy rainfall and strong winds to Cuba and Jamaica. If high pressure weakens, the storm will track over Hispaniola into the Bahamas and bring plenty of tropical moisture and high winds to South Florida from Friday into Saturday.

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!

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!
