Today is another blistering hot day. The dreaded easterlies are progged to move out as the “ridging aloft” is set to move NW. This gives us lighter steering flow than yesterday, which threatened to ruin our bicycle/letterbox outing, but thankfully the storms did not backbuild very much. T-storms were limited to extreme W CS/Parkland, and the Everglades beyond.
As of 1000 88F / 75F DP / 98F HI Expected to reach 90F.
20% chance of rain today, with the western burbs expected to get some slow movers. The numbers are ridiculous, but subsidence due to the upper level high, is expected to quell widespread convection.
2900 CAPE, PWATS 43mm, LI -3.
FOR THE SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH WED...WITH THE RIDGING ALOFT ..SOME STABILITY OF THE ATMOSPHERE PRESENT BUT ENOUGH DEEP-LAYER MOISTURE REMAINS ALLOWING THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCATTERED DIURNAL CONVECTION MAINLY INLAND AND W ALONG THE E/W COAST SEA BREEZE BOUNDARIES EACH AFTERNOON. WESTERN E COAST COAST SUBURBS MAY GET SOME GOOD ACTIVITY EACH DAY AS ANY CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY WILL MOVE WNW SLOWLY AS SOUTHEASTERLY STEERING WINDS QUITE LIGHT.
At 1025 storms started to pop and at 1129 we’ve got this return on radar. I’m off to get some pics, watch the browardwx twitter on the right.
AFD has been updated to include possibility of wet microburst – 40-50mph winds over the interior. at 1133 – 90F / 75F DP / 101F HI
