Today's Outlook

  • Play

Strong weekend cold front

It will be a beautiful start to our day with mostly sunny skies and temperatures hovering in the middle 70s. Heading into the afternoon we will find ourselves beneath a mix of sun & clouds and the mercury climbing towards the 90 degree mark. Late in the afternoon there is a chance of isolated showers and possible thunderstorms developing around our Inland areas east of the
interstate. The rainfall potential will be low today and tomorrow as dry air has moved into the mid-levels of our atmosphere.

Friday looks like a near repeat of today with a chance of isolated Inland rain under a mix of sun & clouds.

Looking ahead to the weekend, there will be a strong cold front from the Upper Midwest moving down the Florida peninsula on Saturday. Our skies will be mostly cloudy with scattered rain
throughout the day before the front makes it way to the Keys on Sunday. Behind the front our dew points will plummet to the upper 50s and lower 60s under clear skies making for a very comfortable sunny day.

Tracking the Tropics-

There are two areas of low pressure in the Atlantic that are disorganized and have very little chance of development or strengthening; both of these systems are headed to the northeast for cooler waters. Dry, dusty air continues to exit the west coast of Africa while the wind shear remains strong over the Caribbean Sea helping to keep much of the tropics quiet.

September had only two named storms and this season has been the quietest since 1986. There are only a few more weeks left in the peak of the hurricane season and this is the time of year when the area of concern shifts to the west, back to the western Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.
