1/11/22 Rain with Cooler Temps Ahead

Certainly more rain around than we have see in awhile. As of 7pm tonight Pompano Airpark has received .71 inches of rain, with more to come. Latest satellite (water vapor) shows dry air well to our north with ample moisture in place over south Florida.

For the rest of the week, Wednesday into Thursday morning much of the same pattern we have seen today. This is ahead of a front that will clear our area on Thursday afternoon bringing the first of two shots of cooler are to the area. Friday and Saturday, clear and cooler. Starting Saturday night we will see an increase in showers ahead of the second front. This will clear our area on Sunday and in its wake give us more cooler and clearer weather. This should give us our coldest temps of the season so far, around 53°.

No severe weather is expected though we did have some flood advisories out earlier this evening. Rip currents are likely at the east coast beaches.

Besides the rain with the front on Sunday, the weekend outlook is clear and cool.

1/8/22 – Weekend Outlook: Some Clouds, Some Showers, Warm

We will see some scattered showers today while we remain warm with partly sunny skies. High today will be 80°.

We have a stationary front in the area which will be the trigger to these showers that will be around. Not all will see them. Those in Palm Beach are much less likely to see showers today versus those in Miami-Dave county. Tomorrow rain chances will be more evenly distributed.

Saturday morning surface analysis.

Winds will pick up later today and into tomorrow, gusts may reach 20-25mph through tomorrow. No severe weather is expected but rip currents will be present at the beaches.

The cooler weather has arrived giving us breezy and drier conditions. Sunny conditions will be around today with winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts as high as 25 mph. With the onshore flow we could see some very light showers. These will be quick and almost non-accumulating.

Latest satellite image showing the cold front well to our south.

Breeziness will stick with us through tomorrow with some increase in cloudiness, but we will remain mostly sunny. Temps through the week will not change much.

Next cold front is on Friday, still not expecting much rain or weather with it which will reinforce our pleasant weather for the weekend.

A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 8am for the area. As of 7am the visibility at Pompano Air Park was 3 miles. Improving from less than a mile an hour ago.

A cold front, now entering Florida, will pass through later today bringing some showers and a possible thunderstorm this afternoon into the early evening,

Once the front passes we will finally dry out from the wet pattern we have been. Drier and cooler weather will be with us through Thanksgiving, next chance of rain will be on Friday with the passing of another cold front.

11/6/21 – Cold Front Almost Here

As our Saturday is starting the cold front that brought the rain we had most of Friday will be passing through by 8am. We may see one more burst of showers before we feel a change in the air. The current radar shows the showers, the dividing line between our muggy air and the drier or behind it.

Radar at 631am.

With the passing of the front we will have a shift in the wind, drier air, and a bump in the wind speeds. Winds will be about 15 mph with gusts to 25 mph possible. Our high today will not be much warmer than they are now peaking around 75°. In fact, temps around the state already show the effects of the front.

Tonight’s low will be 57° with a wonderful weather day tomorrow with clear skies, no rain and an extra hour of sleep. Enjoy your day!

10/31/21 – Not a Scary Forecast, Boo! Is That Wanda?

After a low of 66° this morning around 4am we have wormed up to 73° on our way up to 84° today. All of Florida is enjoying the Florida-Fall weather.

9am temps.

We have mostly clear skies across the area this morning as dry air is in place over the state. As we go into the late afternoon we will see some low-level clouds build up. We could feel a couple drops of rain but nothing to get in the way of enjoying today’s festivities or trick-or treating. We will have nearly perfect weather to be outside. (Could be a few degrees cooler).

Not much to see over Florida this morning.

We will slowly warm up this week but no real weather concerns. Next cold front could be late week into next weekend.

Boo! That is Sub-Tropical Storm Wanda that formed last night over the northern Atlantic Ocean. No land concerns but that does complete our list of 2021 tropical names for the Atlantic. If there is another named system the alternate list will be used with Adria being next up.

Sub-Tropical Storm Wanda.

Enjoy your Halloween!
