Cool and Windy

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

A cool Thursday is underway... We had a weak cold front move through leaving clouds behind. Those clouds acted like a blanket and not allowing temperatures to tumble below 70 degrees. However, there has been a nice cool change in the air. The humidity is low and with the strong wind picking up along the coast, it has helped temperatures feel much cooler. Around other parts of Florida where the clouds cleared, temperatures tumbled into the 30s and 50s.

The wind will be the main concern going into Saturday. It should go from windy to breezy on Friday. In the meantime, increasing wind and seas are prompting advisories for boaters and swimmers. Improvements can be expected by Saturday afternoon.

Computer models are showing some changes... The very same cold front that crossed through South Florida will be lifting back North as a warm front on Friday night. That means clouds and a chance of showers returns. Model guidance is suggesting a 50% chance is in the forecast. For now, look for improvements out on the waters over the weekend, but the clouds and rain may damper your plans.

Have a wonderful Thursday 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!
