We’ve been stuck in an “extra soggy” weather pattern since the start of the month.  Over the weekend, significant areas of rain with strong storms hammered our coast during the late afternoon and evening hours.   As we venture into the next few days, the weather pattern should start to ease (but gradually).   The prime reason for recent storms involves a low pressure system that’s spinning to our north.   Like a large pinwheel, the disturbance is rotating rain bands across much of the state.  Meanwhile, deep moisture continues to be drawn into Florida from the tropics.   The general southerly air flow will maintain into Monday… thus keeping a high chance for developing rain and some daytime storms.  Tuesday (we’re hoping) could be our “transition day” as we transition into slightly drier air, disconnecting from the main tropical flow.   By midweek, then, high pressure is likely to rebuild from the Atlantic and limit the amount of wet weather that moves into southeast Florida.   Any drying time we get will be welcomed since we’ve had almost 8 inches of rain so far in August!2 3 5
