"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.

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!
