Start of summer

Weather changes are hard to come by in June, but we’re noticing a small change in the air.   In contrast to recent days and weeks, the extra steamy air has made an exit.   Deep tropical moisture has been pushed southward for now, courtesy of a weak front crossing south Florida.   As we begin the work week, local winds will increase around high pressure… centered over the middle Atlantic and southeastern states.   These often gusty winds will blow from the ocean waters cutting into the summertime heat.   Speaking of summer, it officially begins (Monday June 20, in the early evening).  Of course, the “other season” in place is the rainy season for us.  So, can we expect some typical summer showers?  Chances are lower… however there’s just enough moisture to produce a few “fly by” swift showers.  Patchy clouds will also rotate off the ocean waters into south Florida giving us times of shade.  A word of caution if you’re heading to the beach:  stronger onshore winds will create rip currents.  That threat will remain high for swimmers through the early week.
