The only new twist in our south Florida weather has been a smoky sky (which some of you have been noticing).   A brush fire happened to get out of control Saturday, sending plumes of smoke across northern Miami-Dade and southern Broward counties.   The smoke was pushing westward.  As a result, most populated "metro" areas didn’t have to deal with it.   Our Sunday winds will still blow from east to west (generally). Additional smoke shouldn’t impact a large sector but use caution driving across U.S. 27 (and possibly I-75) where visibility could be compromised again.  Finally, after more than a week with a stagnant weather pattern, there are some changes in sight.  High pressure over the western Atlantic will gradually weaken during the early part of the week. Meanwhile, an approaching cold front will slowly drift in our direction.  As winds turn more out of the south on Tuesday, hotter air will arrive with deepening moisture.  Then, as the front gets closer, areas of rain will likely move into the region.  Since we’ve been so dry over recent weeks, any rainfall will be welcomed.   The best chance for rain showers will be from late Tuesday through Thursday.  After that, drier conditions are expected to return… possibly lasting into the upcoming Mother’s Day weekend.
