Week Starts Wet

Posted by Brent Cameron

Showers and storms have been persistent in recent days.  The last bit of sunshine (and dry weather) was during the early weekend... on Saturday.   Since then, deep moisture has moved back over us, from south to north.  This rich moisture from the tropics will remain in place for at least a couple more days.   As a result, expect more rain and we'll need to monitor conditions for possible flooding.  That flood threat will linger for spots hit hardest from recent rain.  At this point, the more significant rainfall has been over southern Miami-Dade county... then extending across the Florida Keys. 

The current satellite shows a plume of clouds from the Bahamas to south Florida, then south and west toward the Yucatan Peninsula.  There's a spinning disturbance that's high in the sky, largely responsible for unsettled conditions throughout the region.

The same weather elements that are with us now (tropical moisture and spin of low pressure) will hold through Tuesday.  Unfortunately, we're also looking at the approach of a frontal boundary during the middle of the week.  The front may trigger more rain and scattered storms as the week continues. 

In the tropics, Ingrid made landfall as a hurricane in Mexico.   It continues to weaken: well inland while creating excessive rains in Mexico.  Remember Humberto?  The former hurricane has been gaining strength while over the central, open ocean.  Humberto will be "recurving" northward in the Atlantic, so it's not a land-concern.

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

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!

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!
