A fairly quiet weather day is expected once again for South Florida, as high pressure remains in firm control. By Thursday, some showers will be on the way. The reason for the increase in moisture levels is due to a front located over the southeast United States. This front has been responsible for a severe weather outbreak from Louisiana to Tennessee. Most of the computer models are suggesting that it will enter north Florida to help the winds veer out of the south and bring us some showers. As long as the front is nearby, we may need to leave a chance of showers through the weekend. However, if you were looking forward to cooler weather with this one, it is only going to bring temperatures back to seasonal values.
2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season:
Today marks the last day of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season. We had 15 named systems, 7 hurricanes and of those hurricanes, 3 of them were major hurricanes of category 3 or greater. When you compare that to the seasonal average of 12 named systems, 6 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes, the 2016 season was slightly above average.
Have a wonderful day South Florida and make it a safe one!
