Ho Hum - Weather
Posted by Brent Cameron
We're in the thick of the holiday season, and our local weather conditions are mirroring what's typical for late November. For south Florida, our return to normal-type weather comes after a chilly stint that arrived with the Thanksgiving holiday. Temperatures (throughout the long weekend) continued to run a solid 10-degrees below average!
High pressure is the main weather feature on the weather map. The high is currently centered over the southeastern states, but it's beginning to retreat eastward (into the Atlantic Ocean). The absence of the high will allow another cold front to gradually dive southward. The front will probably generate some rain showers for parts of the Gulf states and possibly north Florida. Since the boundary will weaken... and encounter a drier airmass... the rain potential will remain very low for the local area.
Looking ahead, most of the forecast models show the cold front "limping" across south Florida during the day on Wednesday. Weather changes with the front will be minimal. In fact, we're only looking at some additional clouds (in the wake of the front) followed by a strengthening breeze behind it. Temperatures, meanwhile, will remain close to normal even as we ease into December!
