8/3/19 – Rain This Afternoon, Possibly Heavy

Rain at some point this afternoon is nearly. Retain with the airmass currently over us. Some showers and thunderstorms are already in progress.

NWS is forecasting rainfall amounts through Monday to be in excess of one inch for almost all areas of south Florida. Amounts can vary greatly based on where the activity sets up with the possibility of up to four inches.

Again this is not an all day rain but wherever you are rain will be seen at some point today.

8/2/19 – Weekend Outlook, Rain at Times

Similar to last evening the widespread rains that have been advertised have diminished during the night time hours. Currently the radar is fairly quiet over land.

As we go into tomorrow and again Sunday activity could flare up and local street flooding is possible in areas where the showers focus on. Latest rain total forecast for the area show one to two inches for the weekend.

Since the rain and cloud cover will not be constant temperatures will still reach or go above 90° on Saturday. Here is the forecasted temps for the next 36 hours.

Again, rain will not be an all day/all night event but some areas could see much more than others. Satellite shows that the activity is not concentrated but rather scattered with areas of heavy rain over east=central Florida and around the Keys.

Also watching an area of disturbed weather that has a 40% chance of development over the next five days but the environment ahead of the wave is not very conducive for development. Latest model runs keep the Center well to the east of Florida and that is with the models that develop it.

I will post an updated rain forecast in the morning.

7/27/19 – Some Sun and Clouds with Hit and Miss Showers

A fairly tranquil morning with a temp of 77° to begin our weekend in Pompano along with a dew point of 75°. Other observations in the area are about the same.

Offshore we are seeing some increase in shower activity, not widespread, but these may come ashore later this morning.

There is a cold front that is slowly fading away that is aiding in the shower activity now and will contribute to our scattered after showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Pattern will be similar to yesterday where the showers will be slow moving and drifting towards the east coast. Not all will see rain today but do not be surprised.

Temps will be about normal as we see a high of 91° and a low tonight just below 80°. Hour by hour look like this.

Keep the umbrella handy but do not cancel your outdoor plans, just be ready to adjust.

Enjoy your day!

TD3 Off the Coast, No Significant Risks

As of 11PM TD3 remains off the coast of SE Florida. Main threat from the system will be possible heavy rain which we are not seeing much of from the system. Current radar and lightning data shows a squall line off of Broward county producing thunder I am hearing Pompano.

On satellite TD3’s presentation has become worse through the evening as convection has died down for now.

Forecast for TD3 is for not much change on the next 12 hours as it moves off towards the northwest then more towards the north tomorrow before being absorbed by a front Wednesday.

Keep an umbrella near tomorrow and if you encounter some of the heavier showers just give it some time to pass before heading out.

Follow me on Twitter for updates if they are needed.

7/13/2019 – Mostly Dry and Warm Saturday

With some mid to level high clouds we are starting this Saturday off at 84° and a dew point of 75°, fairly typical mid July weather. What is a bit unusual is that we have a very, very minimal chance of rain today.

Plenty of sun around today and a high of 90° which again is typical and we certainly can see we are in the doldrums of summer looking at highs and lows for the week to come.

Rain chances will return tomorrow but still nothing wide spread is expected.

Tropical Storm Barry continues to approach Louisiana this morning with some strengthening expected prior to landfall Barry could become a Hurricane. Whether it does or not, the primary threat will be flooding in the area.

Enjoy your Saturday.

6/8/19 – Another Warm Morning, Better Chance of Showers

As the sun starts to rise we are at 84° this morning with a dew point of 75° in Pompano Beach.

Moisture is starting build in the atmosphere and this will cause an increase in shower coverage today and will continue to increase into next week. You can see some of this on satellite and the resulting showers on radar.

We will also see an increase in wind today helping to make being outside a bit more comfortable. With that come an increased risk of rip currents. High today will be 91°. Here is the hour by hour forecast.

Still plenty of opportunity to get outside and enjoy the day.

6/29/19 – Rain Will be Around this Weekend With a Few Breaks

We are straying this weekend with a temp of 83° and a few point of 73° with some clouds around. Along with the clouds there are some showers, mostly offshore. We do have a tropical wave in the area and that will give us a better than usual chance of showers and thunderstorms but also keep our temps a little suppressed.

Today’s high will be 88°. Showers will expand in coverage trough the day with the latest HRRR indicating by 1pm they could be widespread in the area.

So not a complete washout it you will be dodging some rain. Only weather threat is the associating lightning with thunderstorms.

We can expect more tomorrow.

Enjoy the day!
