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!
