Soaking, for some

It’s a familiar weather pattern for south Florida.   Not only is it a common one during the summer months, it’s been virtually unchanged for a week now.   We’re stuck in very humid air with only a light tropical breeze.   Weak high pressure still extends from the eastern Gulf of Mexico, across Florida and into the western Atlantic.   It’s a “basic block” from any fronts (although they attempt to sag into the southeastern states and completely lose steam).   As the week continues, we’ll see active sea breeze boundaries.   As they creep inland during the day, this differential heating will likely to stir up thunderstorms.   Heavy downpours and lightning could threaten parts of the area… mainly during the afternoon hours but still possible in the evening.   Since these will lack push, some places could easily pick up an inch or two of rain (and potentially more).   The long range forecast shows this onshore pattern lasting into the upcoming holiday weekend.   That isn’t all bad, though.  We’ll just hope that daily storms  settle down in time for the fireworks displays!
