Trapped by Moisture
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
South Florida there are five weather features keeping the weather unsettled providing for periods of clouds and tropical type downpours the last few days. However, since the ground is already saturated, additional rain may lead to localized street flooding in urban areas. The weather features I am talking about are three upper-level lows: one in the Gulf of Mexico, the other over the Northern Bahamas and another East of the Bahamas in the Atlantic Ocean. The two remaining features is a tropical wave over South Florida and a weak front draped over the Southeast United States.
These features are trapping tropical moisture over South Florida and keeping the rain chances high through the weekend. Unfortunately, we will see anytime showers and isolated storms. By the upcoming week, it looks like an area of high pressure will build in to bring drier conditions. Just keeping our fingers crossed that this long range pattern unfolds.
Tropical Update: All is quiet for now.
Have a wonderful evening South Florida and make it a safe one!
