10/29 – Sunday Turning Clear and Cool

Plenty of rain from what became Trpical Storm Philippe yesterday across SE Florida.  I recorded 8.21 inches in my CoCoRahs gauge.  Some of the official rainfall totals from the NWS were not as high:

We are cloudy and 70F at 7am.  Skies will clear today and turning cooler this afternoon.  We will see a high of 78F but b late afternoon we should be around 68F. So keep a jacket with you.

The only weather hazard is rip currents at the beaches today due to the winds, which will be between 15mph and 25mph at times.  Here is Deerfield Beach from this morning where you can see how rough the surf is.


I will have an update later today with the Halloween forecast.  Enjoy the day!

10/28 – Rain Sets in this Afternoon into Early Sunday for Pompano

Not the driest forecast ahead today as Potential Tropical Cyclone 18 gets a bit more organized and expected to move southeast of us ahead of a cold front.  The cold front will absorb the cyclone tomorrow quickly moving it out of our area leaving behind drier and cooler weather.

Currently 79F in Pompano with mostly clear skies.  As we go through this Monring we will see rain moving in from the south and by late afternoon rain and thunderstorms will be widespread over south Florida.  Latest HRRRR shows rain starting around 2pm and sticking around into the over night hours. 


Main threats today will be heavy rain and gusty winds.  Rainfall amounts could be two to four inches through tomorrow afternoon with isolated amounts of six inches.  Latest GFS run shows rainfall amounts mostly in the two inch area.

And as I mentioned earlier cooler weather is on its way for Sunday.  Highs and lows for the coming week according to the GEFS look very nice for this time of the year.


Enjoy the day and stay safe and dry!

10/22 – Cloudy, Breezy, Less of a Chance of Rain

A very warm 82F to start this Sunday off in Pompano with clouds, a strong easterly breeze, a a few showers.  Latest radar looks like this.


Today we should not see as many showers as we did yesterday due to drier air that has worked into the area.  The clouds and breeze will stick around like yesterday though with a high of 87F.  There is a high risk of rip currents so again stay out of the area waters for swimming and small boating.

Looking to the weeks ahead we still see the front approaching the area on Tuesday with a line of showers and a few thunderstorms ahead of it then some Florida fall air will be upon us.  It will not last long but will give us a refreshing burst mid week.  Lows across the state according to the latest GFS for Thursday morning:


Here is Pompano Beach from earlier this morning.  Enjoy your day!

10/21 – Breezy, Chance of Showers

Starting our Saturday off with a temp of 81F with a refreshing, easterly breeze.  We do have a high risk of rip currents today so stay out of the water at the beaches today.  Current wind and gusts across the area:


Like yesterday we will see some quick moving showers today with cloudy skies, high 87F.  Looking into the middle of this week we will see a quick cool down Wednesday into Thursday.  With the passage of the front that will bring this quick shot of cooler weather we could see some thunderstorms, will keep an eye on this trend.  By Friday we will be back to our warmer weather.  The GEFS shows this.


Get out and enjoy some of the Autumn festivities, but keep an umbrella near.  Enjoy!

10/14 – Some Rain on this Saturday

82F at 6am in Pompano with scattered showers moving east to west over the area.  At the time of this writing we have shower about to come ashore and affect north Pompano and Deerfield.


Clouds and scattered showers today with the focus being along the coast early this morning and tonight with daytime showers affecting the inland areas.  Clouds will keep our high at 87F this afternoon.  I do not see the rain being as extensive in coverage compared to the last couple days.

Cooler weather outlook,  nothing significant yet.  The latest GEFS shows a very modest decrease in temps over the next couple weeks.  Clouds and rain over the past weeks has given us some relief of the 90s.


Go out and enjoy the day!

10/7 – Nice Saturday Ahead

Starting off today at 82F this morning with some clouds around.  Today we will see the possibility of a shower or two this afternoon, breezy, with a high of 89F.  Beach conditions remain rough with a high risk of rip currents so we are still not safe to be in the water.

When will it get cool and more fall like?  We are not there yet. Looking at the latest GEFS we could see our highs lower over he next two weeks but not seeing any drastic cool down…yet.


Hurricane Nate is not a direct threat to us and will be moving towards the north in the Gulf of Mexico.


Get out enjoy a south Florida autumn day!

9/30 – Morning Somewhat Clear, Afternoon Rain

A humid 73F to start our morning in Pompano with mostly clear skies.  Like yesterday, we will see showers and a possible thunderstorm this afternoon and evening. Some rainfall amounts could be heavy but for the most part most areas should see less than three-quarters of an inch if rain.

Tomorrow could see less coverage in rain but not completely dry.  NWS rainfall forecast for south Florida through Monday morning looks like this:


Tropics, Lee and Maria are far away and losing tropical characteristics. We are watching the area of disturbed weather over us now and another near Puerto Rico.  Not expecting any rapid development at this time but keep up to date as we move into our busy tropical time of the year, October.


Get out and enjoy the day!
