Drier and Comfortable

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

A weak front is moving through South Florida this Friday. It has managed to produced some showers around the Florida Keys. The wind is already to turning out of the North-Northeast signaling a change in the air. High pressure is building in behind the passage of this front (not the cooling kind) and drawing in dry stable air. That means the humidity will be lower and finally some better hair days here in South Florida.

However, this weak front is anchored by an area of low pressure located over the Bahamas and the pressure difference it will create with high pressure building over the Southeast United, should pick up the breeze along the coast and drive in some spotty showers on Saturday. By Sunday, high pressure gets reinforced over the region allowing drier and comfortable weather that will carry through Tuesday of the upcoming week.

Tropics: We have a large area of clouds and rain a few hundred miles East of the Lesser Antilles. It is moving slowly Northwest and the National Hurricane Center is giving it a low chance of 20% to develop in the next 3-5 days.

Have a wonderful weekend South Florida and make it a safe one!

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!
