Cold Front Coming; Watching The Tropics

cold front

cold frontSouth Florida is waiting for the season’s first cold front, and it’s on the way this weekend. In the meantime, Tuesday features plenty of sun, a few clouds and some east coast showers on the breeze, along with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The high risk of dangerous rip currents continues at the Atlantic beaches into Friday. The coast flood advisory remains in place along the east coast through Wednesday morning, so low-lying areas can expect more tidal flooding.

cold frontIn the tropics, we’re watching an area of disturbed weather near the southeastern Bahamas that has a high chance of developing into a depression — but will remain well to our east until it’s pushed to the northeast by the cold front that will reach us this weekend. Elsewhere, Nicole has finally become extra-tropical and is racing to the north-northeast at 31 miles per hour.
