Cold now, Cold later

Wake up temps on Wednesday should be in the low 50°s over many areas across Dade and Broward, with the Keys possibly seeing the mid to upper 50°s. Clouds will remain intermittent as they are seen on satellite stretching all the way back to the Yucatan Peninsula.

By the afternoon, temps should return to mild readings with highs in the low to mid 70°s.

We will then continue our temperature roller coaster ride as we head into the weekend, and the early part of next week as yet another front invades the region.

The next front is presently sitting over Texas. It will move our way and should provide some rain by Friday, but just how much is still not clear. The reason for the uncertainty, is the possible emergence of a low by Cuba.

Two things can happen:
The European model suggests a low brewing just to our South, possibly over Cuba, and moving North.

This may help spark some strong storms by the end of the week over South Florida.

Scenario 2:
The GFS model is not so bullish on the developing low.

If this is to be, then we should just get some rain without the threat of nasty weather.

Right now all we can do is wait, see, and monitor the area just to our South for any possible organization.

If it does come about:
After it leaves us, it may ride right up the East Coast dropping rain, and Snow throughout its path. Something they will have to keep an eye on.

This is what NWS National is saying:
Monitoring the possibility of a major winter storm affecting the Northeast later this week, including the possibility of heavy snow for the urban corridor extending from Washington, DC, to New York and Boston Friday into Sunday. Based on the anticipated storm track, as much as 1 to 2 feet of snow is possible near and northwest of I-95. Coastal flooding is also likely.

The low may be across the Southeast, aiming for the Northeast by Friday morning.
