Drier Air Coming

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

A weak cold front responsible for the showers and storms we received Tuesday afternoon has crossed through South Florida. Right now it is located over the Florida Straits, but leaving a thin layer of clouds behind. This is why I am leaving a chance of seeing a few showers today until an area of high pressure over the middle part of the country builds into the Southeast to draw in much anticipated dry air.

On this Wednesday, look for a mix of sun and clouds and maybe a shower here and there. The dry air with a building breeze from the North-Northwest will be felt by tonight with less humid conditions and mild low temperatures into the lower 70s. I know many people have been asking the 7Weather office if the cooler air other parts of the country are experiencing will be felt here? The answer is No. That cooler air does not have enough of a push to get here. We will have to wait until late October or November to see a significant dip in degrees. For now, enjoy the quiet weather because it will be around through early next week.

Tropics: We have an area of clouds and rain located in the far Eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a medium chance of 40 percent to develop in the next 3-5 days.

Keep it tuned to 7Weather for the latest. Have a wonderful day 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!

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!
