We’re holding on to high pressure as our primary weather maker.   The high stretches across a large section of the Atlantic and extends into Florida as well as the southeastern states.   For us, it means onshore winds in which speeds have notched up over the past couple days.  The breezy conditions will likely last through Tuesday, before subsiding.  The rip current danger won’t end… although the threat won’t be as high as we get deeper into the week.   On another note, could the tropics be heating up?   Currently we’re watching 3 tropical waves spanning over thousands of miles.  The first of these is south of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Sea.   It’s likely to continue tracking westward on a “Caribbean cruise.”  The other waves are in the central and eastern Atlantic Ocean (extremely far away).   The most distant tropical wave is being monitored by the National Hurricane Center.   It’s possible that it could develop into a tropical depression or storm before curving more northward in the long run.  Our south Florida forecast is simply calling for seasonal weather:  typically hot and humid with occasional showers (in patchy form).  Rain chances could increase by the end of the week… depending on whether a moisture surge can make it into the region.  The potential for deeper moisture would come once high pressure weakens and after the passage of the wave, well to our south.  123
