In recent weeks we've struggled to get much of a breeze. Winds have been so light that our south Florida heat and humidity has been even more uncomfortable than usual!
A weak frontal boundary has been fading away, in the vicinity of the Keys and Straits. Meanwhile, distant high pressure has been overspreading our region creating the better breeze. Our current pattern is onshore. Air is coming from the Atlantic Ocean (which is still very warm) and the movement of the air is more swift. There's enough moisture (still) to result in some times of rain. Showers, though, are relatively quick to move in and move out. Occasional showers will be dampening southeast Florida as the week winds down.
The only weather change in the days ahead is minor. We're expecting an extra push of clouds (more frequent ones) on Friday. That's also when wind speeds will be decreasing... so any showers will tend to be slow-movers from Friday into Saturday. Looking ahead toward the weekend, expect typical rain chances along with seasonal temperatures. Then, early next week, a slight veer in winds will result in more moisture and humidity. Southerly air will likely stay in place during the start of the work week and that should stir-up more storms (favoring inland locations).
