More Gray Days
Posted by Phil Ferro
Staying Soggy This Week
Cloudy skies will hang around on Tuesday night as more showers and storms are expected. An area of low pressure over the Yucatan Peninsula has abundant moisture streaming across northwestern Caribbean Sea and seeping into South Florida. This feature will bring more gray skies on Wednesday with possible downpours into the end of the week.
Eyes on the Tropics
The area of low pressure, supplying deep tropical moisture to the sunshine state, is accompanied by a lot of clouds and thunderstorms that are being monitored by the National Hurricane Center. This system is expected to gain strength as it moves slowly towards the west-northwest and enters the Bay of Campeche. This feature has a high chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 3-5 days.
Tropical Storm Humberto is still spinning in the open Atlantic waters about 1045 miles west-northwest of the Azores and over 2000 miles away from us. Little strengthening is expected over the next couple of days as this system remains a threat for the shipping lanes.
