****Tropical Storm Sandy spinning in Southwestern Caribbean Sea****
South Florida, the next few days whipping winds will create rough conditions out on the water... here's why.
High pressure responsible over the Atlantic waters will keep things nice and seasonal throughout much of the week. It will also be protecting us from T.S. Sandy currently in the Central Caribbean Sea South of Jamaica. Sandy will be moving north late in the week as it moves to the Central Bahamas. As it gets closer to us, it will create dangerous rip currents, rough seas and the potential to see beach erosion along the Florida coast through the weekend. We will be stuck in the middle of both systems and thus our winds will pick up all across the area.
Besides strong winds , the weather will be mostly dry. Come Tuesday night we could see a few quick moving sprinkles. But by the end of the week as Sandy nears the Bahamas, we could see pockets of rain moving here.
There is also another Depression in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, TD 19. This one should only be a worry for marine interests.
