FIRST FRONT OF THE SEASON

Happy Sunday, South Florida!  All eyes are on the long-awaited cold front that is currently drifting south across our Sunshine state.  Normally weather in South Florida isn’t the greatest just ahead of an approaching cold front.  It seems this time will be different.  There is still plenty of dry air in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere to keep us dry today up and until the front actually reaches us.  Not only will we see plenty of sunshine today but we will also be flirting with near-record heat across some spots.

 

Warm, sunny skies & light winds basically sums up the forecast for the first half of Sunday….

 

Until the front arrives.  First thing we’ll notice is a few more clouds moving in, then the winds picking up then the isolated showers that will linger through this evening and overnight tonight.  Front clears much of our area but is forecast to stall out over the Florida Straits early Monday.  So rain chances go up by this evening and linger for the start of the work week.

Good news is that we will finally see a relief in that heat despite the front stalling.  Temperatures will be dropping to near or just below average for this time of year.  And just like most fronts in South Florida, our “cooldown” will be short lived as temperatures are expected to rebound by the end of the work week.

So if you have any outdoor activities or errands planned for today, here’s what you can expect for the rest of your Sunday as the cold front slowly approaches South Florida:

But until the front arrives, expect plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures for the first half of the day.
