Weather to be Thankful for?
Posted by Brent Cameron
The holiday week is off to a fine start. The majority of clouds are offshore and some of them contain rain. Having said that, however, dry conditions are likely to hold for us... for the next several days!
The weather map currently shows low pressure northeast of Florida, with high pressure centered to our northwest (near Mississippi). The difference in air pressure will keep a steady breeze flowing into the region. Winds are arriving from the north (mainly) and that's keeping us both comfortable and mild. In time, slightly cooler air will funnel into Florida making the Thanksgiving holiday "cooler than average".
Expect a steady weather pattern... even in the long range. A weak cold front is forecast to settle across south Florida again, by Saturday. Like recent fronts, it (too) will likely cross our area dry. The reason? The atmosphere won't have access to available moisture. The passing frontal boundary will simply shut-off any opportunity for noticeable warming. More mild days and comfortably cool nights will be the rule, even into next week.
