Happy Saturday, South Florida!

Hope everyone had a great week! If you liked it warm and mostly dry, then you definitely did. The high pressure has controlled our weather for the past two days and protected South Florida from any fronts or rain. Temperatures remained above average and this morning was no different as we woke up again to temperatures in the high 60’s to high 70’s.

Another mostly dry and sunny day is expected in South Florida today. High pressure still remains nearby and there is still plenty of dry air in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere. And with an easterly breeze in place, other than a stray shower, South Florida is expected to remain mostly dry for much of the day. Like Friday, afternoon high temperatures will again reach the lower 80s. This will leave us with a few degrees above average, again keeping the winter heat in place.

While a similar setup is expected for the latter part of the weekend, Sunday brings some changes to the forecast. A weak front will fall over Florida throughout Sunday but will remain north of our area. This will allow our wind pattern to deviate a little more from the southeast, which will not only allow our temperatures to be even warmer in the mid-80s, but it could reintroduce the possibility of a few showers. South Florida may wake up to a few showers on Sunday, then showers may “burst” again in the late afternoon/early evening. Fortunately, there will be plenty of dry weather in between.

Looking ahead, the aforementioned weekday front is finally clearing South Florida late in the day Monday or early Tuesday. Temperatures will still remain warm to start the week. By mid-week the front will finally be south of our region and while South Florida is not expecting significant cooling this time around, humidity levels will drop a bit and our temperatures will finally be a bit closer to what is typical for this time of year. . Although a few showers cannot be ruled out during the first half of the working week, lower humidity and drier conditions are expected heading into the second half of the week. Fast forward to the end of the week, it looks like a windy pattern will once again be out of the water, meaning a few showers will be possible to round out the work week.

Happy last weekend of February!
