Drier Start to the New Week...
As we start new work week we will be in our typical summertime pattern. This is where we see early coast showers and afternoon inland sea breeze storms. Unlike the weekend these showers will be more isolated, so not everyone will see the storms that could develop. The reason for the isolated showers is because of a pocket of drier air moving into South Florida from the Western Atlantic. This will suppress any widespread chance of showers and storms not just today but also tomorrow.
Looking ahead to mid-week the forecast calls for a slightly better chance of showers due to a tropical wave currently near Hispaniola. The National Hurricane center is also watching this wave as it is the remnants of what was once Tropical depression 7. This area has now weakened to a tropical wave and they are forecasting it having a 10% chance of re-development in the next 48 hours. Environmental conditions are not favorable for tropical cyclone development but if it holds together some models are showing the possibility of that moisture effecting parts of South Florida by Wednesday.
There is one more area we are watching in the tropics, with also a 10% chance of tropical cyclone development. This is an area of low pressure located 1200 miles W/NW of the Cape Verde islands. If this area does develop early models show it staying over water and would Not be a threat to land.
Have a great day!
