THIS IS AN UPDATE DUE TO SLIGHT CHANGES IN THE FORECAST… ALSO, THERE IS A TROPICAL WAVE IN THE EASTERN NORTH ATLANTIC THAT IS MOVING WESTWARD

I just wanted to post an update since the National Weather Service has now introduced a possibility of isolated showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday. Although the chances are still rather low that your particular neighborhood will see rain on Tuesday, I wanted to ensure that everyone is aware that there is a chance of seeing a storm that day… As I mentioned in Saturday’s post, humidity levels will be increasing on Monday, so enjoy today’s pleasantly dry weather while it lasts. The forecast for later in the week is very uncertain as there is a huge discrepancy in the computer model forecasts. Some bring a cold front into our region on Thursday along with a chance of showers and storms.¬†Another model keeps the front further north, thus reducing our chances of seeing any rain. I hope that we get some rain in my neighborhood since we were missed by the rain during last week’s frontal passage… There is now a tropical wave in the Eastern North Atlantic. We’ll have to keep an eye on that one as it travels westward. Although there are reports of the El Nino, wind shear, dry air,¬†etc. etc. limiting this year’s hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin, it does not mean that there can’t be one major storm that impacts the U.S. Hurricane Andrew devastated parts of South Florida in August 1992 during a very below normal season. That’s it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
