4/27/19 – Great Weather Weekend

Starting our day with a very comfortable 68° after the cold front passage last night that did not bring much weather with it.

The front is well to our east now and production more activity than it did when it swept through during the evening. I did have a trace of rain last night.

Today is a great day to enjoy the outdoors with a number of activities going on such as the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival as we head to a high of 83°. Not much change tomorrow except a few more clouds and a. Dry slight chance of rain. Hourly temps for the next day and a half look great,

This is likely our last “cool” shot of air we have for the season. These front will have a difficult time moving through the state this time of the year. The GEFS temperature trend shows a steady, moderate increase in temps going into May.

Enjoy the weekend!


3/30/2019 – Nice, Not as Breezy Weekend Ahead

72° to start our Saturday in Pompano this morning with partly cloudy skies. Winds have come down quite a bit overnight and will continue to drop off some more. With the easterly/southeasterly flow we still cannot rule out showers from time to time but nothing widespread is expected.

High today will be 80° with the only hazard being rip currents at the beaches. Overall weekend rainfall totals will be light and not expected to be above 0.1 inches.

Next front will approach the peninsula on Sunday and stall over central Florida on Tuesday. An area of low pressure is likely to form along this stalled front and will increase our rain chances Wednesday and Thursday.

Here is Pompano Beach from this morning. Enjoy the day!

3/8/19 – Nice Weekend Ahead, Spring Ahead

After our cool down this past week the weekend ahead will bring us back above normal temp wise with a risk of a light shower anytime. The HRRR shows quick, light showers affecting the SE coast of Florida though early Sunday.

Rainfall amounts will be light with totals expected to be under a quarter of an inch. As I write this one of those showers is over head.

Forecasted totals through Sunday evening:

Speaking of Sunday, remember to move your manual clock ahead one hour.

Temps will move back above 80° starting tomorrow and we will see that continue for the days ahead, so much for the cooler weather we enjoyed earlier this week.

Even the latest GEFS does not show a break in warmer temps in the weeks ahead.

Enjoy your weekend!

2/16/2019 – Beautiful Weekend Weather

Starting the day off with very pleasant, calm, 63° this morning with only a couple off shire showers.

No weather concerns this weekend as we are under the influence of high pressure which will yield mostly dry conditions with only a few clouds along with a high of 81°. That means no rip current threat, lightning, or overall severe weather.

This is great weather if you want to partake in some of the area festivals such as the Renaissance Festival in Deerfield or the Italian Festival here in Pompano. This is a great time to be outdoors, not too hot/cold along with the nice dew points.

Looking ahead to the work week we will continue with our 80s temperature trend with a slight bump in rain chances mid-week.

Looking into the far, extended temperature trends (with a grain of salt) the GEFS does not show any signs of winter temps for us going into the first few days of March and keeps us around 80° for the rest of the month.

Get out and enjoy the day!

1/17/2018 – Day Two of Rain, Clearing on Monday

A bit warmer this morning compared to yesterday with a temp of 72°. In the past 24 hours Pompano Beach had 1.62 inches of rain. Other current temps and 24 hour rainfall are below.

Rain has affected all areas out there this morning with more to come, current radar and water vapor satellite showing the area of activity in blue.

As we go,through today a cold front will approach and move through the area with plenty of shower activity ahead of it. So again today we will see planets of shower activity with a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon. Focus for the stronger storms will be south of south of middle Palm Beach county and areas south. This is shown in the latest SPC outlook placing us in a Marginal risk of severe weather.

Timing of the strongest storms will be between 4pm and 11pm. Looking at the latest HRRR predictive radar activity does ramp up later in the day.

Main threats will be strong, gusty winds, brief heavy rainfall, and possible isolated waterspouts/tornadoes. Stay weather aware today.

High today will be 74° and cooling down into Monday, next 36 hours look like this.

Next front will be mid-week and should be mostly dry and uneventful. Next seven days do not show any real extremes.

I will post updates on Twitter as needed, enjoy your day!

1/26/2019 – Rainy Weekend Ahead

Good Morning on a wet, cool Saturday morning. Starting out at 57° with rain in most areas and looking at the radar we do not see an end to it in the next few hours.

Latest HRRR simulated radar shows this sticking around through the day.

This is due to a front that will move north over us very slowly and this rain will linger into Sunday with a bit of an increase in severe weather chances Sunday for the extreme southern tip of the peninsula which will monitored. For today, not expecting anything severe or flooding concerns today.

Total rainfall for the weekend is in the two to four inches area. Of course this will impact any outdoor activities such as beach clean up, cookie sales, South Florida Fair, or the Chili Cook-off.

We will also not warm up much this weekend with a high of 71° both today and tomorrow. Beyond Monday we will begin to get above 70° as we dry out.

Enjoy the weekend and make the most of it – even with the rain. Follow the Twitter account for updates on rainfall totals and any change in trends.

1/20/2019 – Rainy Start to Our Sunday, Colder Tonight

The expected rain is now starting over the area and will be with us for the next few hours as the cold front moves through the area. We are at the highs of the day with a current temp of 73°. We may get back get back to the 70s this afternoon but the rain will cool us down for the morning.

After the rain and clouds clear this afternoon we will become breezy and cool as we head to our Monday morning low of 48°.

No significant weather hazards today, though we will watch for lightning with the strongest storms this morning. There is a Small Craft Advisory for boaters today for all area waters.

No change to our weekly temp outlook as we begin to warm up Tuesday. Next chance for cooler weather will beFriday/Saturday.

Enjoy your day!
