Southeast Florida Weather 1-31-13

The Weather Center News, Southeast Florida, Weather

For southeast Florida weather, during the overnight hours, It was generally clear to partly cloudy. Homestead was reporting haze. Lows were around 70 to low 70’s with some 60’s further inland at the normally cooler areas. Winds were light out of the south (little stronger along the coast). A band of weakening showers associated with the cold front moved from central Florida and entering south Florida.

During the day, the band of weakening showers/sprinkles continued moving southeast across south Florida. The cold front moved off the southeast coast late in the morning. Some light rain/sprinkles continued after the passage of the main band of showers that moved offshore.

Below are the radar and satellite images depicting the front moving off the southeast Florida Coast.  Additionally, the radar image indicates some patches of light rain behind the front.

The highs today were generally in the 70’s and it occurred primarily earlier today before frontal passage.

Skies were clearing from north to south during the afternoon. The clouds associated with the cold front should clear the southern tip of Florida later tonight.

Winds were south and southwest at 5 – 10 mph ahead of the cold front. After passage of the line of showers, winds shifted to the northwest at 10 – 20 mph.

Tonight will be much cooler with temperatures mainly in the 50’s. Some areas further inland will be in the middle to upper 40’s.

Skies will be clearing as the night progresses. However, there was some high cloudiness over the western Gulf of Mexico that was rapidly moving toward the state. If these clouds move over the state during the overnight hours, the temperatures may not get as cool/cold as indicated.

Winds will be out of the northwest and north at 5 – 10 mph. Winds over the waters will be from the north or north-northeast at 10 – 20 mph. Seas will be 3 – 5 feet, occasionally 6 feet. A small craft exercise caution is in affect except for Biscayne Bay.

For Friday and Saturday, it will be partly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs will range from around 70 to middle 70’s. Lows will range from 50’s to low 60’s near the coast.

Winds will be from the north, veering to the northeast later on Friday to east on Saturday. Winds will once again become north on Saturday night/Sunday. Winds will average 10 – 20 mph, but will diminish Saturday night. Seas will be 3 – 5 feet, occasionally 6 feet. Seas will be up to 8 feet well offshore. Seas will diminish somewhat on Saturday especially offshore. Waters will have a moderate chop to choppy at exposed areas. A small craft exercise caution will probably be in affect for portions of the waters.

Another cold front will move into south Florida on Sunday. This will reinforce the cooler air.

For southeast Florida weather, during the overnight hours, it was mainly partly cloudy. Lows generally ranged from middle 60’s to low 70’s. Winds were generally out of the east and southeast at 5 – 10 mph (a little higher along the coast).

There were some showers primarily impacting Palm Beach County. There was some fog, especially further inland. A Dense Fog Advisory was issued for the interior portions of south Florida.

During the day, it was mostly partly cloudy. Some shower activity continued primarily along portions of Palm Beach County as a band setup there extending offshore. The shower activity diminished as the day progressed.

The highs were generally 80 to low 80’s. Some areas reached middle 80’s. Winds were east to southeast at 10 – 20 mph. There was high risk of rip currents plus a small craft exercise caution was in affect (except for Palm Beach County).

For tonight, it will be generally partly cloudy. Lows will range from the 60’s to low 70’s near the coast. With an onshore wind, a sprinkle/light shower cannot be ruled out. Fog may be a possibility again further inland. Motorists need to take precautions if dense fog is encountered.

Winds will be out of the east to southeast at 10 – 20 mph (lighter inland). Seas will be 2 – 5 feet. Waters will have a moderate chop to choppy in exposed areas. A small craft exercise caution will continue for tonight along Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

On Wednesday, it will continue to be warm. A front will be entering north Florida late in the day. North Florida may have some severe weather.

Highs will be from upper 70’s to middle 80’s. There will be a chance of showers, especially later in the day as the front approaches. Lows will range from the 60’s too low to middle 70’s near the coast.

Some fog may develop late at night.

Winds will be from the southeast veering to the south at 10 – 20 mph. Seas will be around 2 – 5 feet, but will diminish to 2 – 3 feet at night. A small craft exercise caution may be in affect for portions of the coastal waters.

As the surface High pressure moves out, the pressure gradient will relax before the front moves in. This may result in a lull with the winds (Wednesday night to Thursday morning). As the front nears and passes, the winds will increase again.

The front will move into the area on Thursday.

It will then clear later into the day/night. Highs will be mostly be in the middle 70’s to around 80 degrees. Lows will mostly be in the 50’s (possibly upper 40’s well inland/wind protected areas).

Winds will start off from the southwest and west and then shift to the northwest and north with passage of the front. Winds will increase again to about 15 – 20 mph. Seas will average 2 – 5 feet, but then increase to 6 feet and 8/9 feet offshore.

This will be a short lived cool down as the surface High pressure is pretty far north and shifts eastward.  This will result in winds veer to the northeast and east-northeast on Friday.

On Friday, it will be partly sunny to partly cloudy. Highs will range around the middle 70’s. Lows will range from the middle 50’s to middle 60’s.

It will be breezy. Winds will be from the northeast to east-northeast at 15 – 20 mph (possibly a little higher especially along the coast). Seas will be 3 – 5 feet, occasionally 6 feet and 8/9 feet well offshore. A small craft exercise caution or advisory will probably be issued for portions of the waters.

Additionally, with a northeast to east northeasterly wind flow, the risk of rip currents will be on the increase. Boaters, marine interests, beach goers and swimmers need to be on alert and take necessary precautions.

Looking longer term, another front appears to move through Florida on Sunday.
