Not too Shabby
Posted by Brent Cameron
This time of the year can be extra-volatile, across south Florida. Weather conditions just a week ago were very rough with the approach of Isaac! This weekend doesn't involve any tropical features... luckily. At worst, you may need to put up with a brief passing shower, though.
Our weather is under the influence of high pressure. In fact, it's a sprawling high that extends from the central Gulf to the western Atlantic Ocean. For us, it's an "onshore pattern" that sends any developing showers to the west. We're also picking up a decent breeze (from the east) which is also helping to curb some of the heat.
The main change through the early week involves an upper low that's spinning (high in the atmosphere) several hundred miles from Florida. As it gets closer... by Tuesday and the middle of the week... we could see some additional "instability showers and storms" flaring up. As the week continues, then, we're anticipating a switch in steering winds. As that happens, expect more frequent afternoon storms. Stay tuned.
