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,
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.
A lot going on today with the weather as a cold front will sweep through the area. Ahead and after the front winds will pick up and remain gusty. There is a Wind Advisory in effect from 10am this morning though this evening.
The first part of the day is going to be nice but very warm as the winds pick up. This will be followed by about 2pm with rain approaching then moving into the area. Rain will not be overall heavy and will linger into the evening. Then the colder weather will filter in.
We can see the roller coaster of our temps for the next 36 hours.
Follow me on Twitter where I will post updates today at pompanoweather.
A variety of weather between now and the end of the weekend and we have time change on Sunday morning. Between now and the Saturday afternoon our temps will continue to climb a little each day with highs on Saturday around 90°.
Then we have a cold front that will sweep through the area Saturday afternoon brining rain, possible thunderstorms, much cooler air and lower dew points for Sunday and the start of the new week. Rainfall amounts are not extend to be high, but if we do get a thunderstorm with the passage amounts could be higher than shown here.
By Saturday early evening the rain will stop, winds will pick up a bit and the cool air will filter in that will give us a wonderful Sunday weather wise. This is a comparison of the GFS and Euro for the timing of the frontal passage.
We have a beautiful weather weekend ahead with warm temps and breezy conditions. The only downside will be dangerous rip currents at the beaches.
High pressure will be in control of our weather which will lead to mostly dry and mostly sunny weather. We have a very slight chance of an isolated, light shower through Sunday.
Our temperatures will not be extreme for this time of the year, highs around 80° and lows around 70°. Though we will warm up next week.
The most noticeable weather this weekend will be the wind. Wind will increase gradually today and then pick up more tonight and park on Sunday when we may have gusts up to 25mph. The HRRR model shows this clearly as we see gust up to 20mph tarting around sunset tonight.
Plan to get out this weekend and enjoy this time of year in Florida. Plenty of activities going on including the Renaissance Festival in Deerfield. Just stay out of the water at the beaches.
