"A Light... at the end of the tunnel"
Posted by Brent Cameron
Recent days and weeks have been gray and gloomy across south Florida. So far this week, we've had persistent clouds from the Gulf into the Atlantic while crossing directly over the Florida peninsula. The seemingly end of clouds does come to a break (in the distant western Gulf of Mexico. Once a front and area of low pressure makes an exit, we'll get into some drier air. As a result, the dreary days will switch to a much brighter pattern.
After another day with high chances for rain, drier air will build into our state from the north and west. Improving conditions will not only involve a drying trend with more sunshine, but also a welcome rollback in humidity levels. Meanwhile (and if that's not enough) we should also get some added comfort from a stronger wind flow! Winds will strengthen as low pressure deepens offshore from the coast of South and North Carolina. Eventually, the western Atlantic low is expected to lift toward to the north and northeast... remaining offshore from the entire eastern seaboard of the United States.
Even though we'll keep tracking the low (which will be non-tropical) we're only seeing some distant waves across the tropics. None of these tropical waves hold the potential for growth in the days ahead. It's a nice lull in the tropics... as we end the month of September.
