Happy Sunday, South Florida!
Hopefully we all turned our clocks ahead 1 hour last night as Daylight Saving Time began today 2am.
After a taste of winter earlier this week, it looks like the winter warmth quickly made a comeback this weekend. High pressure over the Atlantic remains in control of the weather pattern and has allowed winds to veer out of the East. With the return of the ocean breeze, temperatures have warmed to the above-average threshold South Florida is all too familiar with and spotty coastal showers have returned to the forecast during the overnight and morning hours.
As we head into the the start of the work week, High pressure will slowly weaken and push farther into the Atlantic. This will allow a Southerly wind component to take shape, which only means one thing…..WARMING TREND CONTINUES!
Stray morning showers will give way to afternoon high temperatures in the mid 80s next few days, leaving temperatures running 5-10 degrees above average for this time of year and leaving South Florida looking for relief from the heat. So we are keeping a close eye on a weak front currently across Northern Florida that could slowly drift South in the days to come.
As we head into the middle of next week, that front will finally reach South Florida. And while the front is forecast to weaken before arriving to South Florida, another high pressure system COULD push the front back towards South Florida. And if it does clear us, then we could see somewhat of a relief from these sizzling temperatures. (and by relief I mean we could see afternoon temperatures in the low 80s rather than the mid 80s. More importantly, humidity will be lower than usual. We’ll take what we can get!) A spotty shower is possible while this front is near us Tuesday/Wednesday.
Breezy conditions return to the forecast for the second half of the work week. So any Spring Breakers planning on heading out to the beach next week, please remember to use caution while swimming as RIP CURRENTS will be a big threat along Atlantic Beaches. There will be plenty of time to work on those tans as no significant rainfall is expected through the next 5-7 days.
