Unsettled Times

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

 Local Weather:

 We have a weak front stalled over North Florida and an upper low high up in the sky over the Gulf of Mexico helping to trap and draw in deep tropical over South Florida. Most of the computer models agree that anytime downpours are likely through Wednesday. By Thursday, the moisture levels should start to thin out and only a chance of showers will be in the forecast through the weekend.

 Tropics Update:

Ingrid madefall near La Pesca in Mexico Monday morning weakening into a tropical storm. Plenty of heavy rain and gusty winds being experienced in the region. In fact, 10-15 inches of rain and isolated amounts up to 25 inches likely in the next few days. As if it wasn't enough for Mexico, the remnants of Manuel that made landfall over the weekend from the Pacific Ocean also bringing tons of rain. The potential for flash floods and mud slides is high for Mexico as they are surrounded by rain.

We have a disturbance in the Northwestern Caribbean Sea with a low chance to develop as it slowly moves West into the Yucatan in the next few days.

Post-tropical cyclone Humberto is trying to make a comeback. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a high chance to regenerate in the next 3 to 5 days. Right now it is located over 1000 miles Southwest of the Azores. Most of the models suggest this one will not be a threat to land.

Have a wonderful day South Florida and stay dry!

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!
