A fairly typical mid-September weather weekend ahead. Mostly dry, but, cannot rule out a shower of thunderstorm with highs both days 88F. Rain chances will ramp up early in the work week and the back to mostly dry mid-week. Longer term not looking at and significant warmth or cooling over the next couple weeks.
Tropical Storm Julia continues to meander off the SE US coast but towards late in the weekend we should see the storm moving away. There are a couple models that want to bring the system back to the SW and over north Florida but I am not seeing that at this time. Latest NHC forecast is here:
Finally, for now, Tropical Storm Karl is not under the best environmental conditions for strengthening but will be watched for the longer term. Current model solutions are mostly in the school of calling this a “fish storm” and keeping it out to sea. Too early to disregard it though.

Latest NHC forecast keeps Julia about where she is now with little movement. Still no direct impact to us or our weather in south Florida.
Latest models on TS Julia
NHC Has given a 70% chance of development for the system that is currently bringing rain across most of the state. This syste will not impact SE Florida any more than it already has but could be a persistent rainmaker for much of the state through Saturday.
The system currently designated as 93L is tracking slowly towards the north.
Models are tightly clustered for the system, again the rain is likely across much of the SE US.
A weak tropical wave will increase moisture over our area bringing a better chance of showers over south Florida starting this afternoon. Wave can been seen on visible satellite.
Latest radar shows the scattered showers over the peninsula now.
Latest weather hazards:
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY INTERIOR AND GULF COAST…
…MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS ATLANTIC BEACHES…
We are nearing the high today of 88F at this noon hour in Pompano, currently 87F.
Saturday should be warm as usual with a high of 90F. Here are today’s highs per the latest HRRR:
There will be some showers this weekend and the latest rainfall amounts through Sunday evening:
Keeping an eye on the tropics, nothing immediately concerning but always need to be watched this time of the year. Area to the south of Florida may develop as it moves into the western Gulf of Mexico. The area to our east has a lot of shear to overcome before it can organize.
Enjoy the day!
