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.

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!
