2/16/2019 – Beautiful Weekend Weather

Starting the day off with very pleasant, calm, 63° this morning with only a couple off shire showers.

No weather concerns this weekend as we are under the influence of high pressure which will yield mostly dry conditions with only a few clouds along with a high of 81°. That means no rip current threat, lightning, or overall severe weather.

This is great weather if you want to partake in some of the area festivals such as the Renaissance Festival in Deerfield or the Italian Festival here in Pompano. This is a great time to be outdoors, not too hot/cold along with the nice dew points.

Looking ahead to the work week we will continue with our 80s temperature trend with a slight bump in rain chances mid-week.

Looking into the far, extended temperature trends (with a grain of salt) the GEFS does not show any signs of winter temps for us going into the first few days of March and keeps us around 80° for the rest of the month.

Get out and enjoy the day!

1/17/2018 – Day Two of Rain, Clearing on Monday

A bit warmer this morning compared to yesterday with a temp of 72°. In the past 24 hours Pompano Beach had 1.62 inches of rain. Other current temps and 24 hour rainfall are below.

Rain has affected all areas out there this morning with more to come, current radar and water vapor satellite showing the area of activity in blue.

As we go,through today a cold front will approach and move through the area with plenty of shower activity ahead of it. So again today we will see planets of shower activity with a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon. Focus for the stronger storms will be south of south of middle Palm Beach county and areas south. This is shown in the latest SPC outlook placing us in a Marginal risk of severe weather.

Timing of the strongest storms will be between 4pm and 11pm. Looking at the latest HRRR predictive radar activity does ramp up later in the day.

Main threats will be strong, gusty winds, brief heavy rainfall, and possible isolated waterspouts/tornadoes. Stay weather aware today.

High today will be 74° and cooling down into Monday, next 36 hours look like this.

Next front will be mid-week and should be mostly dry and uneventful. Next seven days do not show any real extremes.

I will post updates on Twitter as needed, enjoy your day!

1/26/2019 – Rainy Weekend Ahead

Good Morning on a wet, cool Saturday morning. Starting out at 57° with rain in most areas and looking at the radar we do not see an end to it in the next few hours.

Latest HRRR simulated radar shows this sticking around through the day.

This is due to a front that will move north over us very slowly and this rain will linger into Sunday with a bit of an increase in severe weather chances Sunday for the extreme southern tip of the peninsula which will monitored. For today, not expecting anything severe or flooding concerns today.

Total rainfall for the weekend is in the two to four inches area. Of course this will impact any outdoor activities such as beach clean up, cookie sales, South Florida Fair, or the Chili Cook-off.

We will also not warm up much this weekend with a high of 71° both today and tomorrow. Beyond Monday we will begin to get above 70° as we dry out.

Enjoy the weekend and make the most of it – even with the rain. Follow the Twitter account for updates on rainfall totals and any change in trends.

12/30/2018 – Mostly Sunny and 80° Today

Our streak of warm weather continues today through New Year’s Day as high pressure sits near us brining dry condition and a southwest breeze. Today’s high will be 80° with no showers expected. The only weather related concern is a moderate risk of rip currents at the beaches.

No significant change expected with our weather patterns through the first half of the week coming up. Rain chances will increase as we go into mid-week ahead of a cold front that will bring some cooler weather for us Friday and for next weekend. Nothing extreme but will bring us more into the area of normal for this time of the year. Looking at the NWS blend of models we see that temp change coming up and lasting into the weekend.
