South Florida continues to stay unsettled by some deep tropical moisture that is being pulled in from a south to southwest steering wind. This steering pattern is due to an area of low pressure that is located over the Tennessee Valley with an associated front that is extending into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Showers will continue to develop over the Florida Straits and the Gulf of Mexico as the storms lift northward they could produce some pockets of heavy rain and gusty winds across Miami-Dade, Broward and the Keys.
Looking ahead the forecast models show an area of high pressure building over the western Atlantic by late-week, this will provide for a gradual improvement in our weather pattern. Where high pressure will be located it will completely change our wind pattern which will steer any showers or storms that develop away from the metro and coastal areas. High pressure will also help filter in more sunshine then cloud cover as we go into the weekend.
Tropics: Tropical Storm Nadine is still spinning in the Atlantic. We have been talking about this system for 3 weeks now. Nadine is going to be a worry for the Azores by the end of the week. There is a Tropical Storm Warning in effect for portions of the Azores as they could be dealing with Tropical Storm conditions as the storm approaches.
The other area is a Low pressure system 900 miles W/SW of the Cape Verde islands with a 70% chance for development.The National Hurricane Center has stated that the system has become better organized and that environmental conditions are favorable for development. If this system does develop early models show it will "Not" be a threat to land.
