After a week of glorious weather cloudless skies, low humidity (for us), warm days and cool nights its back to the usual for South Florida. Storms are in the forecast on Friday and Saturday.
There is a cold front pushing into Central Florida, said meteorologist Steven Ippoliti from the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade. So we expect some thunderstorms and rainfall for Friday.
Fortunately for the sun-hungry, it is believed the cold front will stall and spare South Florida cool temperatures, but not rain.
Even with the upcoming rainy spell, South Florida has enjoyed more sunshine than usual.
So far for February, the region has received 0.94 inches of rainfall, which is 0.59 below the norm, Ippoliti said.
Temperatures have been up, too.
The average temperature for the month so far is 73.1 degrees which is 3.3 degrees above the normal average, Ippoliti said.
In good news for sun lovers, the trend looks to continue next week.
Were looking at 4 to 5 degrees above normal, Ippoliti said.
