12/2/2018 – Warm and Not as Breezy, High 86F

It is December but the thermometer does not agree this morning. At 7am we are at 79F with a dewpoint of 73F. When you walk outside you will feel the mugginess. All areas of southeast Florida are in the 70s.

Like yesterday we will have clouds but not as breezy and a touch warmer with a high of 86F. Any rain, like yesterday, will be light and fairly quick moving. Next real chance of rain will be on Wednesday in association with the next cold front that will bring us cooler weather for the second half of the week ahead. Looking at the blend of models output for the next week we can see two drops in temps ahead but we cannot count on that second one…yet.

Enjoy your day!


12/1/2018 – Warmer and Breezy Today

Currently we are about 10 degrees warmer than our high of 65F on Wednesday along with some clouds and breezy conditions in Pompano.

Not expecting any significant rain today with a high of 83F. Any shower today will be quick and light. Tomorrow a slightly better chance of measurable rain and a few degrees warmer with a high of 86F. Temps for the next week look like this.

Next cold front will come through later Tuesday dropping our highs back into the 70s for the balance of the week. At this time no significant weather is expected with the passage of the front but will keep an eye on it. Forecast chart for Wednesday morning shows the front well to our south at the time.

As mentioned rainfall will be very minimal in south Florida with heavier amounts going into the central and northern parts of the state. Forecasted rainfall totals through 8am Monday are:

Yesterday needed the 2018 Hurricane Season. I will post a summary later today of the activity.

Enjoy your day!

11-22-2018 Happy Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Weekend Forecast

With a partly cloudy and warm 82F in Pompano a Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers. Yes, there are some showers around so carefully time your deep-fried turkey sessions outside.

There was a waterspout reported three miles off of Deerfield Beach this morning so mariners should keep a cautious eye out during some of the activity this afternoon.

As we go into the evening not really expecting much change as our weather pattern will not change much today or tomorrow. Low tonight will be 68F and for Friday a high of 81F. If venturing out for Black Friday shopping tonight or tomorrow keep your umbrella near for those showers. Overall mostly pleasant weather for this time of the year.

We do have a combination of a weather features including the front that moved tough the area yesterday decreasing moisture in the atmosphere and an approaching short wave from the Gulf of Mexico that will provide some energy for the shower development we will see into tomorrow. Forecast map for tomorrow 8am depicts this.

For the balance of the holiday weekend we will warm a bit more Saturday and Sunday, highs about 85, along with a few showers. Next cold front should sweep through Tuesday dropping our lows to about normal for this time of the year and giving us a break from the showers. Looking further out not really seeing any significant shifts in temps.

Enjoy your time this holiday and I will get an update out later in the weekend.

11/4/2018 – A Change in Weather From Yesterday

We are waking up this Sunday morning to a bit warmer and damp compared to yesterday. The front that swept through Friday evening moved further south than expected giving us a dryer day than expected yesterday. Then early evening yesterday the front started to retreat back to the north bring rain last night to the area and warming us up a bit overnight. At 7am we are at 80F with most of the shower activity to our north. Latest satellite imagery shows the boundary just to our north.

For today we should see a high of 85F with still a chance of a shower but nothing widespread. Most of the rain. Ow associates this this warm front will be over the central and northern parts of Florida. HRRR depicts this well and here is the general rain areas for this afternoon.

Going into the week. It much change in temps expected until we get to late week when the next front will approach the area and will bump rain chances up.

Election Day forecast should be mostly dry and pleasant giving us no reason not to vote, if you have not done so already.

Here is Pompano Beach this morning at sunrise with a few clouds and a nice easterly breeze. Enjoy your day!

10/28/2018 – Fall Arrived in South Florida

Step outside this morning and you will feel a change in the air. After a high yesterday of 90F we are at 63F as of 7am. Almost all areas of south Florida are in the 60s as we start this Saturday.

Today will be a “Chamber of Commerce” day with a few clouds and a high of 80F. Hourly temps through the next 30 hours will look like this.

So after another night in the 60s we will return to our lows in the 70s for the next week or so. No significant weather is expected this week including what should be a pleasant Halloween evening with barely a chance of rain and moderate temps. Next chance of rain will be on Thursday and going into the weekend. NWS forecasted highs and lows are not bad at all.

Certainly, get out and enjoy our Fall weather today. Here are a couple picture from Pompano Beach from this morning.

Enjoy your day!

10/20/2018 – Pleasant Saturday Ahead, Fall Weather Ahead (Florida Style)

A mostly clear morning so far with a temp of 76F and a dew point of 73F so there are patches of wet grass out there. A slightly above temp day ahead with a high of 89F. We could see a quick shower today but most areas should be dry.

Fall is on its way, that is where we will have slightly cooler temps in the morning but our days will remain warm. A cold front will almost clear the area tomorrow evening stalling just south of the area.

A shower or two could be seen with this front as it stalls and then moves back north triggering a better chance of showers later in the week. Then as we go into the later part of next weekend a front should clear the area giving us our first full shot of cooler air.

Lows in the 60s could be seen late next weekend. In the meantime we will look for lower dew points this coming Tuesday morning as the Euro is showing 62F.

Enjoy the day and certainly get out and enjoy all the Pumpkin festivities going on.

9/30/2018 – Chance of Showers, a Bit Breezy

Starting off this last day of September at 82F with a dew point of 73F with a nice easterly breeze of 13mph. Today, like yesterday, some clouds and sun with a high of 90F. We will see a chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and into the evening, with the morning and early afternoon mostly rain free. An area of low pressure over the Bahamas could trigger the rain activity as it slides towards the west but we are not expecting anything severe, with our main weather threat being lightning and rip currents at the beaches.

We will continue to have a chance of showers and thunderstorms into next week as our temps remain somewhat constant, maybe a degree or two lower for the overnight lows.

In the tropics advisories are being issued on tropical storm Leslie in the mid-Atlantic with no other tropical development expected over the next five days.

A beautiful mourning at Pompano Beach earlier but there was a lot of seaweed which has been an issue for a couple months now which really has not subsided. Here you can see layers of it along the coastline for as far as you can see. Enjoy your day!
