Forecast for Tuesday 04.28.2009

I am sitting outside on my laptop right now not because it's really cool outside, but it's actually cooler than the inside of the apartment. Mysteriously, our AC decided to freeze up and now we have to open our windows and let the AC adjust itself.

The nice, clear conditions that I am seeing right now will, once again, persist for the next few days. The ridge is expected to keep its place and keep Florida dry and clear. The wind flow will primarily be out of the east for tomorrow, increasing the rip current threat for the eastern coastline.

For tonight, expect mostly clear skies with a morning low of around 60. The guidance models seem to be accurately forecasting the temperatures so far. For Tuesday, I'm calling for mostly sunny skies with a high of 84. Any clouds in the skies will probably be low-level.

The ridge that is keeping us dry and warm is expected to weaken in by the weekend (see GFS 300mb Friday forecast below), but it might not be enough to bring any big chances of rain. The front that was expected to be near the area this weekend has been discounted by the latest model runs.
