There is distance high pressure in the western Atlantic Ocean and a front hanging around central Florida creating a large pressure difference. This is helping to create breezy to windy conditions and coastal concerns. Therefore, look for lots of available tropical moisture, dangerous rip currents and hazardous seas the remainder of the week. Also, computer models are showing a tropical wave currently producing rain over Hispaniola and Puerto Rico where they don’t need any more. This westward moving tropical wave will keep our rain chances high as it will be around between Thursday and Friday.
A large area of clouds producing scattered showers across much of the northwestern Caribbean Sea, the Yucatan peninsula, Belize, Honduras, and Guatemala is being monitored by The National Hurricane Center. Due to the proximity to land, it should prevent any significant organization for the next few days. However, conditions could become favorable for development of a low pressure system by the end of the week across the northwestern Caribbean Sea or the southern Gulf of Mexico while it slowly drifts northward. It has been given a low chance to form through the next 5 days.
Have a wonderful day South Florida and make it a safe one!
