Wind Shift Set to Bring Weather Changes to South Florida

If you’re tired of the scorching hot temperatures, relief is on the way.

Meteorologists say the general flow of air over South Florida is going to be off the ocean for the foreseeable future, finally breaking that intense heat.

The water around Florida and through the Bahamas remains warmer than normal, but a breeze in the ocean will help to moderate temperatures.

However, the wind flow, which goes across the Atlantic from Africa to Florida, carries moisture with it.

Our first rush of wind is expected to be here late Friday into Saturday, followed by another one early next week. Both will increase our cloudiness and the chance of thunderstorms as they pass by.

Additionally, forecasters do not anticipate much, if any, tropical development next week.

Thursday night will see our low temperatures in the 70s, with partly cloudy skies and some coastal showers possible, along with a light breeze out of the east.

As we head into the weekend, Friday will both start out partly sunny, with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms possible moving quickly from east to west. High temperatures will remain around 90 degrees on both days.

We can expect to see that same weather pattern and temperatures on Saturday and Sunday.

Moving into next week, Monday through Wednesday will offer partly sunny skies, with east/southeasterly winds and highs around 90 degrees.

Fast moving isolated to scattered rainfall is also possible each of those days, with higher rain chances along the coast in the morning and then inland during the afternoon.
