Hazy Days, Again?
Posted by Brent Cameron
Another large batch of haze is heading toward south Florida. This drier-type air will at least limit the development of daily storms... over the next few days. As we get deeper into the week, though, we're likely to see more moisture and rounds of storms.
Since rain chances are lower (for the time being) temperatures will soar. Expect hot highs that will range from the lower 90s at the coast to the middle 90s, well inland. Our wind flow is light and the lack of a noticeable breeze will also make for a set of steamy days.
As the week continues, we will closely be monitoring a particular feature in the Tropics. It's a low pressure area that seems to be on the verge of developing into the season's next Depression or Storm. Most of the forecast models show the area forming during the early week... then moving west toward the Caribbean Islands. Hurricane hunter's have a mission scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, to get a closer look at the disturbance. There's general agreement on the track over the next 2 or 3 days, but after that, speculation differs. Steering winds may take the system in the vicinity of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola... and it will be necessary to see if it makes landfall or is impacted by higher terrain. If the disturbance can survive and grow, we could see some related impacts as early as this weekend. Stay tuned!
