Happy Sunday, South Florida!
Unfortunately, the start of our weekend didn’t turn out as we hoped it would. A weak front stalled out over Central Florida, a strong high pressure system built into the area just north of the area & the wind picked up throughout the day. This allowed the wind to pump in more moisture from the Atlantic and eventually socked us in with clouds and on-going showers through much of Saturday.
Looks like today could be a similar setup. The pressure gradient will tighten (a fancy way of saying winds will pick up) even more than yesterday continuing the breezy to gusty forecast today as well. So while anytime showers remain in the forecast again today, the good news is that any shower will be fast-moving!
And while the wind remains on the stronger side, let’s not forget the impact it will have on marine conditions this weekend. As winds continue to build, this will help kick seas up. So a SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY is in effect for the Atlantic waters through until at least Monday morning while the RIP CURRENT RISK along Atlantic beaches remains on the higher end of the scale. Although it will be warm enough, this today will not be a good one for swimmers.
