Sunshine & Spotty Showers

Posted by Phil Ferro

Drier Days are on the Way

Clouds will stick around with a chance of showers and storms on Thursday night. The slow moving front, north of Lake Okeechobee, responsible for our showers and storms this week will start moving through the Florida Straits over the next couple of days.

As high pressure builds in behind this rainmaker, drier air will blow through South Florida as winds shift out of the northeast and drop humidity. Friday will bring mostly sunny skies with a chance of storms and showers in the Keys.

A shift in the winds and pick up in the sea breeze will bump up the chances of spotty showers and storms in South Florida on Saturday.

Eyes on the Tropics

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a cluster of clouds and rain about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. This slow moving large disturbance is expected to track to the northwest. It has a low chance, 20%, of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 3-5 days.

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!

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!
