Why Another [Winter] Warm Up is on the Way

The title of this story might be one we can repeat multiple times this winter.  Warmer than normal temperatures are expected in Florida for the next three months, largely because of a La Nina that has formed. That’s not to say there won’t be some cold spurts. Gainesville was climbing out of one Saturday. A nice warming trend has begun in...

Two Strong Fronts This Week

Two strong fronts in three days will traverse Florida. The first arrives Tuesday and will produce measurable rain, maybe even a few thunderstorms. The second will deliver the coldest air of the early winter season on Friday, with a freeze likely Friday night.   Meteorologist Deborah Alberto has broken down the timing of Monday and Tuesday’s showers and thunderstorms.   ...

10-Day: Early Summer Warmth Without the Humidity

    The next ten days will be warm, but that’s nothing unusual for this time of year. After all, our average daytime high is nearing the middle 80’s. It’s also typically quite dry this time of year, as April rainfall only averages 2.67 inches in Gainesville. Right on cue, our latest 10-Day Outlook is also mostly dry. Temperatures will climb slightly above...

Pattern Shift Under Way, 80 in Sight

A cold front moved through Thursday night, so naturally it turned cooler in its wake. However, it’s apparent now that the shift in upper-level winds that we wrote about last Monday has prevented an extreme outbreak of cold in the Southeast. Remember what happened last weekend?  Saturday is the beginning of four-day stretch of warmth. In fact, for the first time this year, the mercury...

10-Day Outlook: Warmth Returns, Rain Doesn’t

  The start of the abbreviated work week will be cold, but it won’t last long. By the time many of you are hitting the road or airwaves to your Thanksgiving destination, the warm weather will return to the Sunshine State. An upper-level ridge of high pressure is forecast to build in from the southeast.  This will keep cold fronts...

10-Day: Unusual Cold Front Teases North Florida

It’s almost unheard of to get a cold front moving through Florida this time of year. And no, we aren’t forecasting one to actually pass all the way through. However, a dramatic shift in the weather pattern is forecast to occur across the Eastern US over the coming days that will send an unusually strong cold front as far south...

10-Day: Slightly Wetter/Cooler Pattern Unfolding

It won’t get a round of applause from most, but a few farmers and construction workers may be happy about it.  A slight shift in our weather pattern will result in slightly higher rain chances and “not as hot” high temperatures this week in north Florida. No, there won’t be a cold front. However, some sense of “normalcy” will return with...
