Another Weak Cold Front Headed Our Way
Posted by Phil Ferro
Aside from morning showers that have moved west along with some minor street flooding experienced in the South Beach area due to the high tide cycle, the day has turned out to be a nice one for South Florida. We are following another weak cold front which should be arriving on Tuesday and is expected to once again slightly decrease humidity levels and not bring any change in temperatures, nonetheless, the possibility for inland showers remains as this front reaches our area. We have experienced an increase in both dew point and low level moisture during the past day, however we should feel drier air moving in once again as the cold front clears on Tuesday. The possibility of showers remains on Wednesday due to a combination of increasing deep layer moisture and westerly flow throughout our interior and East coast.
In the tropics we continue to monitor tropical storm Rafael which is located some 570 miles south of Bermuda and has maximum sustained winds near 70 mph. Rafael has a small window of opportunity of becoming a category 1 storm either this evening or Tuesday and it is forecast to track very close to Bermuda before heading off to the North of the Atlantic towards the end of week.
