Our weather pattern, which has been extremely active in recent days and weeks, is finally tranquil! Weak high pressure dominates for now, and it's providing us with a breezy onshore air flow. Since moisture levels have dropped, we're only left with some random (and quick-moving) showers from the ocean.
Looking ahead, steady changes are in the forecast. As early as Tuesday evening we may see more activity on the radar. The reason? A plume of deep moisture is on the approach from the south and east. The tropical-type moisture will overspread south Florida during the middle of this week... resulting in the return of more rain and storms. Accompanying the surging moisture is a weak tropical wave. This wave (a stretched-out low pressure disturbance) has a shot at holding together while moving toward south Florida. If we get some of that "extra energy" we could have heavier rain with stronger storms... and more widespread stuff.
Regardless of the wave's ability to remain intact, our local rain chances will be ramping up. Fact is, high pressure will break down over the western Atlantic and we'll be back to a more southerly air flow. With so much tropical humidity arriving, we'll see (at the very least) scattered rain showers with storms. Since many locations are still dealing with the aftermath of Friday's big flood event, any significant rain is not welcome here!
