12/10 – What a Cool Down, High Today 65F

Good morning and at this time yesterday we were are 77F on the way to a high of 80F before the front came through. In Pompano we are at our low of 47F which is a 30 degree drop in 24 hours. Welcome Winter!

No hazardous weather today with cool, clear, blue skies, and breezy conditions heading to a high of 65F. Highs across the area today and difference from normal look like this:

Most areas will be about 15 degrees below normal for our high. Lows tonight will be about the same as today.

Looking ahead to the week mostly cooler weather with no rain through Friday. We will warm up towards the end of the week and into next weekend. Latest Euro for Pompano reflects this:

Get out and enjoy a south Florida winter day. Here is Pompano Pier from this morning. Enjoy!


12/9 – South Florida Winter Arrives Today

Some of the coldest weather we have had in a couple years arrives today. Currently we are at 77F with a cold front now approaching the west coast of south Florida.

This front is currently producing snow in the panhandle area of the state. Here are the observations from the area.

The front comes through the area today with rain and a few thunderstorms possible. Rainfall amounts are expected to be about a about a half-inch. Currently a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is in effect for the Naples area. The latest HRRR shows the peak rain around noon today with clearing by mid-afternoon. Temps drop quickly with the arrival of rain.

Once we dip below 70F today we will not see it again until possibly Tuesday before the next front comes through to reinforce this cooler weather. Sunday morning lows will be in the 40s throughout the area, latest NWS forecast shows this.

The latest Euro shows a cool/cold, dry week ahead with no rain after today.

Enjoy your day, find your jacket and I will have an update by tomorrow morning.

12/2 – Nice Weather This Weekend, Cooler Weather Ahead

Meteorological winter has arrived (December 1) and it does not feel like it, yet. Starting today at 69F in Pompano with a high this afternoon of 80F. No indications of any rain today so if you are out shopping or heading to the FAU Stadium you have no weather worries.

We are currently in a very inactive weather pattern but this will change as we will see a cold front approaching the area on Wednesday which will increase our rain chances. This cold front will move through the area late Thursday with clearing skies and our cooler weather. The latest Euro does show the wet weather hanging around for a couple days and those cooler temps behind the front.

The GFS is not as aggressive currently on this cooler weather so will watch the trends going into the next couple days.

Enjoy your day and get out to enjoy it!

11/25 – Rain Free for the Remaining of the Thanksgiving Weekend

Happy Thanksgiving. After a stormy, rainy Thanksgiving our weather has turned quite nice. Waking up this morning at 66F in Pompano after a normal low of 64F earlier. In fact the 60s are all across south Florida.

Looking at the past week this is our first normal low morning. Overall our temps have been just a bump above average with our highs and lows out side of our high from last Monday.

We should remain dry trough Tuesday/Wednesday with no major shifts in temp. The latest Euro keeps this trend going for about the next week.

Next weekend we could see some cooler weather but a bit too early to count on that.

There are no weather threats today so get out and enjoy the day!

11/19 – Another Very Nice Day Ahead

Good morning as we start off at a very pleasant 66F with clear skies. We will be warming up to 82F with virtually no rain today. Like yesterday we could see a very light coastal shower later but nothing to keep you inside for.

As mentioned yesterday, rain chances increase tomorrow and into Tuesday. Then again Thursday into Friday. At this time nothing severe but rain on our turkeys look very possible. Comparing the Euro and the GFS for the next 10 days we can see some agreement with this.

Both indicate a modest cool down after the holiday weekend. I will update the forecast as we get closer via Twitter ( @PompanoWx ) and here.

In the meantime enjoy the day. Here are a couple pictures from sunrise at Pompano Beach.

11/18 – Very Nice Weekend Weather

67F with mostly clear skies this morning in Pompano. Chances of rain are very low (not quite none) today but there is no reason not to get out and enjoy very typical weather for this time of the year. High today will be 81F.

Sunday should be about the same with rain chances increasing late tomorrow ahead of a cold front that will moderately drop our temps early next week. Looking at the Euro meteogram for Pompano for the next ten days we see the rainfall amounts peaking Tuesday and again for the Thanksgiving/Friday time frame. No huge swings with our temps which should remain wild through the week ahead.

Specifically looking at Thanksgiving, a cold front is expected to approach then stall over the area. This will be the focus of the rainfall for the first part of the holiday weekend. Right now it looks like the front will washout for next weekend lowering rain chances. Here is the synoptic map for Thanksgiving Day.

Enjoy our weather for this weekend and get out to enjoy it!

11/4 – Showers Possible with Some Clouds

A nice 73F with some showers around this morning.  I had nearly a third of an inch overnight and early this morning at my place.  Showers are moving towards the SW off the ocean.

Clouds remain around today but I think we will see fewer showers going into the later morning and afternoon with a high of 85F.  Tomorrow we should not see as much in the way of shower activity.  Looking into the week we will hold onto a slight chance of showers until late week when a front approaches the area and could stall.  Temps will remain the same.  Here is the latest graphic from Euro for Pompano from weather.us which is producing some very nice graphics and access to models.

Tropics are not quiet but no concern for us at this time.  The one system shown below will not affect us.

Finally set your clocks back one hour tonight as we end Daylight Saving Time. (yeah!)

Enjoy the day.
