We may officially be more than two weeks into the fall months, but it still feels like summer across central Florida. This week has been marked by daily deluges and, even though a front will move through tomorrow, it will remain wetter than average through early this week.
October began with a late-summer like scattering of showers and storms across central Florida. A big storm is stalled over the Gulf and driving tropical moisture northward; this will keep our rain chances on the higher side through the work week.
Temperatures dropped as low as the middle 50s this morning across parts of central Florida, with 60s across a good chunk of the area along and north of I-4. The cooler weather sticks around to start Tuesday morning, with warmer and more humid air -- as well as a chance of storms -- returning to the forecast later this week.
We've had a front meandering across the Florida peninsula over the last few days and it is located just to our south tonight. A second, stronger, front will arrive early Sunday and clear -- at least briefly -- the unsettled weather to our south and give us a nice finish to the weekend.
We wrapped up the weekend with scattered showers and storms, the heaviest of which fell across our western counties. The rain pattern is changing for the week ahead -- and we may even see an attempt at tropical development!
A persistent onshore breeze has kept central Florida cooler than average over the last few days, with passing showers moving from east to west. The breeze stays up to start the weekend, but will relax to wrap the weekend as highs return to the low 90s.
An unusual early season cold front is moving through central Florida right now, and will provide a bit of a break to the late summer heat and cut down on our rain chances over the next few days.
So far, 90L, a piece of former Hurricane Isaac hasn't gotten better organized in the Gulf. Satellite imagery is showing an exposed center of circulation, with the rain clouds and rain on the SW side - a sign of a storm undergoing wind shear. I've had the question about why ...
It's been an unusually dry first couple of days of the Labor Day weekend and we'll finish it pretty quiet as well. The remnants of Isaac, in part, are the reason.
Tropical Storm Isaac is still a fairly disorganized, albeit large, 45 mph tropical storm in the northeast Caribbean. There have been some model shifts to the west over the last several hours; tonight's model runs will be critical.
