South Florida we have big changes happening this week as we are watching 2 cold fronts. Today you will not need the umbrellas, but tomorrow will be a different story. A front currently over eastern Texas across the Lower Mississippi Valley to the Southeast United States is bringing plenty of heavy rain and storms. Those locations today could experience severe weather in the form of flash flooding, storms producing damaging winds and tornadoes. This front is expected to move through the Florida peninsula on Tuesday and increase our rain chances. It will cross through in weaker fashion and hang around South Florida through the end of the week. Unfortunately rain chances will range between 40-50% through Friday morning, so have the umbrellas with you at all times.
By Friday, several computer models are showing that another front currently over the western United States will race quickly our way to clear everything out. This should happen by Friday afternoon. As a result, a cooler and drier airmass will start to filter through. The weekend is looking spectacular just in time for the 45th Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade taking place along Ft. Lauderdale’s fabulous waterways Saturday night at 6:30pm. Tickets are still available for grandstand viewing area powered by Ford. All you have to do is call or go to the Winterfest office.

Have a wonderful day South Florida and make it a safe one!
