We are warming up tomorrow with a chance of showers then widely scattered showers as we go into the evening and overnight hours.
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.
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.
I will update the timing and severe threat on Friday.
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°.
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.
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.
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.
We are waking up ti our coolest morning of the season. Pompano is currently at 56° after our low of 53°. We are heading up to 72° this afternoon with plenty of sun and no rain.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will continue this trend of nice weather with only gradual warming and no rain expected for the entire weekend. Not really seeing a real chance of rain until mid-next week.
No reason not to get outside or at least open the windows.
We are starting this Friday at 58° with plenty of sun and a few high clouds. This is continuing our wonderful streak of pleasant weather.
We will continue our trend of warming up with highs today through the weekend approaching 80° then a touch warmer and stabilizing early next week. This puts us right around average this time of the year.
Rainfall will be hard to find. As we warm up this weekend we will see some more clouds and a very slight increase in our chance of a light shower through Sunday. rainfall amounts will be less than .05 inches (if any at all).
Get out and enjoy the outdoors this weekend. In Pompano there is Old Town Untapped going on between 6pm and 10pm tonight (Friday). Wonderful evening weather, music, food trucks, and vendors. You will find all of this at the NE corner of Atlantic Blvd and Dixie Highway. Find more information here:
The cooler weather has arrived giving us breezy and drier conditions. Sunny conditions will be around today with winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts as high as 25 mph. With the onshore flow we could see some very light showers. These will be quick and almost non-accumulating.
Breeziness will stick with us through tomorrow with some increase in cloudiness, but we will remain mostly sunny. Temps through the week will not change much.
Next cold front is on Friday, still not expecting much rain or weather with it which will reinforce our pleasant weather for the weekend.
