Brief Cool Down
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
South Florida computer models are now in agreement that a brief cool down will be coming by the end of the week. By brief I mean it will last for one day. Right now we are watching a front that is stalled around the Southeast United states extending from the Gulf of Mexico to the Northeast where it is producing a mix of rain, sleet and snow. This front will move through Florida Thursday night bringing a few showers with it and then clearing out over night. Once the front clears, an area of high pressure will settle in and the wind will turn out of the North drawing in cooler air.
However, the cooler air will be turned off because the wind will swing out of the Northeast once again for the weekend. This will allow for a gradual warm up to near seasonal values. We should see more clouds moving in with spotty showers possible, but don't think of it as a wash out of a weekend... It will be mostly dry with comfortable temperatures to where we should be for this time of year. On Monday, another cold front seems to be coming through South Florida for yet another cool down for the second half of the week.
Note: We are forecasting highs in the low 80s this afternoon... This means we could tie our old record of 15 consecutive days of above 80 degrees for the month of January. Tomorrow we could easily break this record. Chief Meteorologist Phil Ferro will have the latest this evening as official confirmation from the local weather service office comes in... Stay tuned!
Have a great Wednesday South Florida and make it a safe one!
