Sunday nite forecast - Apr 1 2007
Forecast from tcPosted April 1st, 2007 07:44 PM
Wow, it's been awhile since I've forecasted for Miami, but I hope to keep this a regular Sunday nite feature. I don't have the luxury of local knowledge and might not be able to call it good for a particular spot, but I don't think the recipe for good waves in Dade County has changed too much since I left. Unfortunately during that time, the wind models haven't gotten all that much better either. So excuses aside, here's how things are looking.
Right now High Pressure has been sliding eastward and settling into a Bermuda High type pattern. This will start dissipating soon and the moderate SE flow which was had over the weekend will go away too. Sometime late Tuesday/ early Wednesday, a low is progged to form around the mid Atlantic states, and it seems like its location is moving more eastward with each model run. Anyhow, a front should accompany this low, and will start making its way into central Florida sometime Thursday morning. The strength of this front is weaker and weaker with each forecast run, and its getting into that time of year when the fronts usually fizzle before hitting South Florida. In short, its not looking too good for this front to be a wave producer, even though NWS was calling it a "strong" front on Sunday nite. But should be nice weather.
Longer term, Looks like a somewhat strong storm forming in the FLA Panhandle region late Tuesday Apr 10. Bears watching, but thats a while out.
