Dry conditions worsen, but cooler weather this weekend?
Posted by Phil Ferro
High pressure is still dominating our weather bringing with it dry conditions and warm temperatures. A grass fire was observed Monday afternoon in Southern Miami-Dade. These dry conditions will get worse over the next few months as we further move into the dry season, so be on the alert. Any spark could start a fire and due to the dry brush it could quickly get out of hand.
The South Florida Water Management District recommends Residents and businesses should continue to follow the District's Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule, which limits landscape irrigation to two days a week, with a three-day-a-week provision for some counties. Utilizing the rule's flexibility, some city and county governments have adopted alternative landscape irrigation ordinances based on local water demands or system limitations.
We are currently the warmest spot in the nation, but a cold front sitting over the Southeast will try hard to reach South Florida by the end of the week. Models are showing two different possibilties.The first possibility is the cold front will come through with some showers by the end of the week and maybe bring our temps back down to near seasonal temps, while the second possibility has the front fading away. By Wednesday we will know for sure if the cold front will come through.
By the end of the week we will see an increase in moisture and breezy conditions even if the front doesn't pass through completely.
