More Moisture Expected
Posted by Phil Ferro
The day began with Cloudy skies and a few showers through out South Florida. We continue to be under the influence of deep layered tropical moisture associated with cloudiness that is moving northeastward from the Yucatan Peninsula through South Florida. There is a lot of available moisture that is spreading through our region and this unstable pattern may persist until at least Friday possibly bringing afternoon showers our way. Clouds will continue to move in our direction with upper clouds from the SW producing hazy skies and our lower clouds developing courtesy of the surface winds coming in from the ocean.
There is a brand new area of disturbed weather in the Atlantic about 650 miles east northeast of the Leeward Islands. This system has low opportunities of becoming a tropical cyclone as winds are not favorable for development. As for Nadine, it continues to leave its mark in the Atlantic where it is slowly moving towards the south-southwest at approximately 5 mph. There are no watches or warning in effect as Nadine is far from any land and is expected to continue moving over open waters.
