Spring Has Sprung (In the Northern Hemisphere)

Spring has sprung, the grass has ris’,
I wonder where the birdie is?
There he is up in the sky,
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!

I‘m alright, I won't cry,
I'm just glad that cows can't fly!

FORECAST: Nothing new from Saturday's post. The backdoor boundary, or rather the leading edge of higher surface barometric pressure pushed through Central Florida yesterday as expected. The remaining boundary is now near Miami  where some showers remain along and just ahead of it near the Keys. High pressure at the surface will continue to influence the weather over Florida today under mostly clear skies, although some stratocumulus appear will continue to come ashore over South Florida.

Temperatures maybe a few degrees cooler inland, but the A1A corridor won't notice a difference with breezy onshore winds this morning abating through the afternoon North Central and North Florida. Coastal lows will remain in the mid-upper 60s overnight, warmer south toward low 70sF. Inland lows in the mid-upper 50Fs.  Winds calm down all areas overnight though to near calm.  

The ridge axis over Florida tomorrow will sink south toward South Florida Tuesday. Expect a delayed sea breeze on Tuesday, warmer on this day away from either coast. No rain. The ridge will be breaking down and sinking south in response to a trough pushing through the Central and Northern Plains States which will be pushing east bound, but the main energy from this system is well to the north. With the ridge breaking down and the axis remaining south...

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY: ....Expect again another delayed sea breeze on Wednesday, and possibly no sea breeze from near SR520 and north as the remaining tail-end of cool front sinks south into Florida. Thursday will be about the same with no sea breeze most guaranteed with a warm, west wind of 15-20mph during the afternoon. Warm with highs in the low-mid 80Fs with some cumulus clouds.  Might see some upper 80Fs as well! Spring has Sprung!!The front now appears will cross through with zero fanfare Thursday night, accompanied by a wind shift after dark Thursday night. 

FRIDAY-WEEKEND: Winds swing around the clock very quickly from the north to a southerly direction going into Friday and through the weekend. Warm Spring Breaker weather. Expect crowds and traffic at all beach thoroughfares with beach access roads filled to the gills. Possible rain/thunderstorms enter the picture late Monday/Tuesday time frame.
