Soggy Friday

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

On Thursday Ft. Lauderdale set a new record with 5 inches of rain. The old record of 2.88 inches was set back in 1912. We have an old front trying to squeeze any little bit of rain it can before fading away. Most of the models suggest that the old front will be located over the Florida Keys Friday night and drier air will start to filter through Miami-Dade and Broward with the breeze building at the beaches. Saturday should be nice, but clouds will hold ahead of another weak cold front set to move in on Sunday. Therefore, a high chance of rain will be in the forecast with this other front. It will also turn windy during the day on Sunday.

The weather will improve for the start of the week, but I know a lot of you will be traveling to see family and friends for Thanksgiving... Travel plans may be impacted by yet another cold front. On Monday, a stronger cold front will develop in the Gulf of Mexico and receive a push to the Northeast by the jet stream dragging warm humid air our way. Our weather will be wet on Wednesday and it will be a mess around the Northeast states. By Thanksgiving Day. it should be nice and comfortable. We will have to wait and see if the models continue to insist on a cool down. For now, looking at wonderful holiday!

Have a great 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!

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!
