Columbus Day Rain
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
Columbus day rain has been experienced because the air remains juiced up (unsettled so to speak). I know a lot of you have been asking me through Facebook and Twitter why we have been experiencing so much rain this morning when the forecast called for mostly dry conditions?...
South Florida weather my friends is tricky to forecast. The last couple of days we have been saying that a weak front bringing cooler weather over the nations mid-section would fall apart Sunday over South Florida... that did not happen. It decided it was going to hang around a little longer. Therefore, times of clouds and rain continue.
This pattern will be in place until Tuesday. By the middle of the week, we will have an area of high pressure build in from the North and a nice refreshing Northeast breeze will be in place. It will be less humid and temperatures will have a fall-like feel to them by South Florida standards. We could see lows in the upper 60s and highs in the middle 80s as we round up the work week.
1) An elongated area of low pressure extending from the Southeastern Bahamas Northward over the Western Atlantic Ocean a couple hundred miles continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Development is doubtful. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a low chance.
2) A broad area of low pressure and tropical wave located about 1600 miles East-Southeast of the Lesser Antilles is producing showers and thunderstorms. Development if any of this disturbance will be slow to occur as it moves West to West-Northwest at 15-20mph. It has a low chance to develop in the next few days.
Have a great Columbus Day South Florida and make it a safe one!
