Columbus Day

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

The forecast the last few days has been spectacular. Mostly sunny and dry sound perfect to me... also low humidity. On this Columbus day, more of the same is expected. We have an area of high pressure in place over the Gulf of Mexico, helping to draw in dry air with a nice breeze out of the North-Northeast. It won't be until Wednesday, when we could see some changes in the forecast.

A weak cold front (not the cooling kind for South Florida) will move through North Florida. This means we will see additional clouds build and some isolated showers. Therefore, a few more clouds with isolated showers will be possible for Wednesday through the end of the week.

For now, if your plans take you out on the waters this Columbus day, we have no boating advisories. There is only the risk of rip currents for swimmers.

Tropics: There is an area of disorganized showers and storms a few hundred miles East of the Lesser Antilles. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a low chance to develop during the next 5 days.

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!

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!
