4/1/22 – No Joke, Severe Weather Threat for the Weekend

Good morning, a few notes for the weather today and this weekend. Today we will see the start of a wet pattern across the area as a cold front to our north slowly creeps down the state and then stall over the weekend around the Lake area. We will warm and humid today with highs in the upper 80s and dew points in the 70s. A combination of these items will allow showers and some thunder storms to develop later today and then become more numerous over the weekend,

Forecast map for this afternoon.

Saturday and Sunday we could see a severe weather threat across Broward and Palm Beach counties with the Storm Prediction Center placing us under a Marginal (level 1 of 5) risk of severe weather. For today the risk exists mainly to our north and to the west.

I will have an update later today to be more specific with the overall rain threat and severe weather possibilities.

Stay warm and have a great evening.

1/20/22 – Warmer Today with a Chance of Showers, Friday Possible Strong Storms

We are much warmer this morning compared to yesterday. 7am temperature at Pompano is 71°. Showers chances will increase today as we get a breeze off the ocean which will also increase our dew points/humidity.

Tomorrow we will have another cold front approach the area late in the day which will increase our rain chances. This front will not be as potent and will linger to our south which will keep rain chances through the weekend.

Forecast map for Friday night.

With the front approaching we will see a chance of severe weather with the main threats being strong, gusty winds and possible small hail. Dynamics are different and the chance of a tornado is not elevated. Current timing for the strongest of storms will be between 6pm and 2am.

SPC threat map for Friday.

I will update the timing and severe threat on Friday.

1/16/22 – Possible Severe Weather Approaching

By 1pm the strongest storms should be over the east coast areas. Please check the Twitter account for the latest information on warnings.

Currently a Tornado Watch is in effect until 3pm. Strongest activity is expected in the next hour. Latest radar and severe weather outlook.

Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for most of Broward and Palm Beach counties.

1/11/22 Rain with Cooler Temps Ahead

Certainly more rain around than we have see in awhile. As of 7pm tonight Pompano Airpark has received .71 inches of rain, with more to come. Latest satellite (water vapor) shows dry air well to our north with ample moisture in place over south Florida.

For the rest of the week, Wednesday into Thursday morning much of the same pattern we have seen today. This is ahead of a front that will clear our area on Thursday afternoon bringing the first of two shots of cooler are to the area. Friday and Saturday, clear and cooler. Starting Saturday night we will see an increase in showers ahead of the second front. This will clear our area on Sunday and in its wake give us more cooler and clearer weather. This should give us our coldest temps of the season so far, around 53°.

Forecast map for Sunday morning with the approach of the second cold front.
Seven day forecast from NWS Miami.

No severe weather is expected though we did have some flood advisories out earlier this evening. Rip currents are likely at the east coast beaches.

Besides the rain with the front on Sunday, the weekend outlook is clear and cool.

1/8/22 – Weekend Outlook: Some Clouds, Some Showers, Warm

We will see some scattered showers today while we remain warm with partly sunny skies. High today will be 80°.

We have a stationary front in the area which will be the trigger to these showers that will be around. Not all will see them. Those in Palm Beach are much less likely to see showers today versus those in Miami-Dave county. Tomorrow rain chances will be more evenly distributed.

Saturday morning surface analysis.

Winds will pick up later today and into tomorrow, gusts may reach 20-25mph through tomorrow. No severe weather is expected but rip currents will be present at the beaches.
