Drier Days Ahead This Week

Last week's wet weather was caused by a cut-off, slow-moving area of low pressure that pulled in tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.

SetUp Large


This week, a ridge of high pressure is strengthening to our east, often called the "Bermuda High", and this will allow a drier, more stable air mass from the Atlantic Ocean to move in. Typical sea breeze thunderstorms will still likely develop over inland areas during the afternoon hours, but widespread, heavy and long-lasting rain is unlikely to return this week in Florida.
