Port St. Lucie, Florida

Well, that was certainly a thrilling football game today, wasn’t it?! Now we head off to South Florida, one of the only things hotter than the offenses in Minneapolis were tonight!

At 135am EST, the temperature at Port. St. Lucie, FL was 63 degrees under overcast skies. A storm system is pushing away from the East Coast today, with a potent low pressure system bringing plenty of misery to New England (too soon?) while the tail end of the associated cold front is clearning the FL Peninsula. Some isolated showers along the front have shifted off to the east already, and with high pressure building in behind the front, dry weather is expected today and into Tuesday as well. More sunshine is expected on Tuesday, with temperatures inching up a couple of degrees.

Monday: Cloudy early, then clearing. High 74, Low 62.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy. High 76, Low 60.

TWC: Monday: Isolated AM shower, then becoming sunny in afternoon. High 74, Low 64.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy. High 78, Low 59.

AW: Monday: A little morning rain, then variable cloudiness. High 75, Low 63.
Tuesday: Partly sunny and pleasant. High 79, Low 59.

NWS: Monday: Early morning showers, then mostly cloudy. High 74, Low 61.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. High 80, Low 59.

WB: Monday: Partly sunny, chance of morning storm. High 72, Low 64.
Tuesday: Partly sunny. High 76, Low 59.

WN: Monday: No Data
Tuesday: No Data

FIO: Monday: Light morning rain, then mostly cloudy. High 71, Low 63.
Tuesday: Partly cloudy overnight. High 76, Low 63.

Just a few showers are left over south Florida as the system departs the region. Dry weather ahead!

Typical Tropics

Ah Florida. Always nice weather there it seems. And for a day at least, it was at Port St. Lucie! Thursday was nice as Wednesday had a thunderstorm rumble through around midday/early afternoon. Either way, still nicer than most of the country. Weather Channel brought home the win

Wednesday: Afternoon thunderstorms reported. High 77, Low 66.
Thursday: High 77, Low 64.

Port St. Lucie, Florida

Back in Florida tonight. I feel like we should have this sorted out by now.

At 1153PM ET, Port St. Lucie was reporting a temperature of 67 degrees with overcast skies. A broad swath of low clouds smothers Florida, with some thicker clouds and rain possible south of Miami. The thinness of the clouds suggests that they will be able to burn off tomorrow morning, but a deeply plunging jet running from the Gulf eastward across south Florida will strengthen through the day tomorrow.
Some high based showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible in Port St Lucie tomorrow, thanks to the instability aloft. If there is any good news, it’s that activity will be primarily as rain, with thunderstorms unable to develop. As the jet strengthens tomorrow, it will also become progressive, steered by a sharp trough swinging through the Ohio Valley. While there will be rain showers tomorrow, Thursday will be clear and dry.
Tomorrow – Showers possible, otherwise cloudy, High 78, Low 65
Thursday – Mostly cloudy, High 79, Low 66

TWC: Tomorrow – Rain showers in the morning with scattered thunderstorms arriving in the afternoon, High 77, Low 67
Thursday – Partly cloudy, High 76, Low 64

AW: Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy with a shower or thunderstorm around High 78, Low 66
Thursday – Pleasant with intervals of clouds and sun High 78, Low 65

NWS: Tomorrow – A 40 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, High 79, Low 65
Thursday – Partly sunny, High 80, Low 62

WB: Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers, High 79, Low 64
Thursday – Partly cloudy, High 80, Low 61

WN: Tomorrow – Mostly Cloudy with Scattered Showers High 79, Low 64
Thursday – Partly Cloudy High 81, Low 63

FIO: Tomorrow – Light rain throughout the day. High 78, Low 68
Thursday – Light rain in the morning and evening. High 77, Low 66

This is pretty tolerable. Even with a chance for rain, it’s hard to beat Florida. Clouds across the region are so thin, it’s tough to see the on satellite.

Port St Lucie

Dotted with storms

Isolated thunderstorms were widespread over south Florida this week. Ok, so maybe “Isolated” and “Widespread” don’t make sense together. It wasn’t like, a squall line rolling through. Does that make sense? All right, I’ll pretend that it did. Port St. Lucie saw some shower activity each day of our forecast period, and the clouds associated with the wave responsible for the showers kept things relatively cool on Wednesday. Temperatures only reached 80 degrees, a full 6 degrees short of the nearest forecast. The Weather Channel was the least bad in south Florida.
Actuals: Tuesday – .07 inches of rain, High 87, Low 75
Wednesday – .1 inch of rain, High 80, Low 73

Grade: B-C

Port St. Lucie, Florida

Now that we’re moving into the 2nd half of hurricane season, we go to a state that’s synonymous with them, Florida! Will they see any tropical activity in the next couple days?

At 815pm EDT, the temperature at Port St. Lucie, FL was 81 degrees under fair skies. High pressure has been firmly entrenched over the Mid-Atlantic states, keeping almost everywhere from GA to Southern New England dry today. However, the tail end of a boundary is lingering not far from the eastern coast of FL. While the boundary itself will dissolve, the fact that the aforementioned high pressure is staying put will keep moisture pushed south, keeping plenty of fuel for thunderstorms over a state well-known for them. A chance of activity is expected for the next couple of days, and a couple models attempt to try and spin up some tropical activity in the Eastern GOM so we’ll have to keep an eye on that. In any event, it likely won’t be quiet as we push into midweek.

Tuesday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 88, Low 76.
Wednesday: More widespread thunderstorms. High 87, Low 77.

TWC: Tuesday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 87, Low 75.
Wednesday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 86, Low 76.

AW: Tuesday: A shower/thunderstorm around. High 88, Low 77.
Wednesday: More showers and thunderstorms in vicinity. High 86, Low 78.

NWS: Tuesday: Chance of showers, possible late night tstm. High 89, Low 77.
Wednesday: Chance of thunderstorms. High 88, Low 78.

WB: Tuesday: Chance of thunderstorms. High 89, Low 77.
Wednesday: Chance of thunderstorms. High 88, Low 78.

WN: Tuesday: Partly cloudy with scattered showers. High 88, Low 75.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with isolated storms. High 88, Low 79.

FIO: Tuesday: Rain until evening. High 88, Low 77.
Wednesday: Light rain throughout the day. High 87, Low 77.

Here we see rain showers off the eastern coast of the FL Peninsula, and they’re mostly stationary. If anything, they might be drifting slightly back towards the coast.


Rainy End to the Month

As the forecast for Port St. Lucie had stated for pretty much every outlet, a weakening cold front brought showers throughout south Florida. Luckily, the heaviest of activity stayed away from the area, so while rain was reported both days, the weather was still relatively decent. The NWS was the top dog for this late-February forecast.

Thursday: 0.04″ of rain. High 75, Low 60.
Friday: 0.10″ of rain. High 73, Low 57.
Forecast grade: B

Port St. Lucie, Florida

This always seems to happen. It’s bitterly cold up in the home of Victoria-Weather, and we get a forecast for south Florida. It’s not fair.

At 347PM, ET, Port St. Lucie was reporting a temperature of 84 degrees with partly cloudy skies. An upper level trough over the eastern third of the country was shifting east and surface low pressure was developing off the mid-Atlantic coastline. At the sae time, the base of the trough was digging east, and a cold front was becoming more well defined as it stretched from about Jacksonville to Celarwater.
As the origination point of the low pulls to the northeast, the front will get progressively weaker. It will eventually pass through Port St. Lucie early tomorrow morning, and a disturbed region of showers will linger over far southern Florida by late Friday morning, but it will generally be a function of post frontal vigorous westerlies, rather than the front itself. Expect the sunshine to return late in the day Friday, just in time to welcome the weekend.
Tomorrow – Scattered showers with embedded thunderstorms High 72, Low 60 (non standard)
Friday – Early rain showers, High 76, Low 54

TWC: Tomorrow – T-Showers High 73, Low 59
Friday – Partly Cloudy (more showers) High 76, Low 53

AW: Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy and not as warm with spotty showers High 74, Low 59
Friday – Partly sunny (early showers) High 74, low 53

NWS: Tomorrow – Showers likely, mainly before 11am. Cloudy High 72, Low 58
Friday – Partly sunny (early morning rain) High 75, Low 53

WB: Tomorrow – Cloudy. Showers likely through late afternoon…then a chance of showers late in the afternoon. High 73, Low 59
Friday – Considerable cloudiness in the morning then becoming partly sunny. (early showers) High 76, Low 53

WN: Tomorrow – Showers High 72, Low 64
Friday – Partly Cloudy High 75, Low 54

So that front will indeed move through eary tomorrow and drop the morning low by a good 10 degrees. Everyone is non standard on this except for WeatherNation, which is incapable of being non-standard. Here is the satellite, showing that the front ins question is pretty well set up across the southeast.

Christmas on the beach

There was one prevailing issue with the forecast in Port St. Lucie, and it was a prevailing wind. Easterly flow, even overnight meant that temperatures were moderated, and overnight lows simply didn’t bottom out like one may have expected. That was the big problem with the forecast, but let’s be honest… I don’t think any residents or guests were complaining. The Weather Channel had the top forecast.
Actuals: Sunday – High 75, Low 64
Monday – High 73, Low 68

Port St. Lucie, Florida

There are a lot of little towns along the Florida coast. Well, not little, but a lot of them that you may not have heard of or realize how close they are. I don’t know where I am going with this.

At 147PM, ET, Port St Lucie was seeing mostly cloudy skies with a temperature of 75 degrees. A cool front was moving through the region, and was actually demarcated on the surface observations as lying between Stuart and West Palm Beach. There were a few light showers in and around the Palm Beach area, but most of the activity was off the coast, and northerly flow in Port St. Lucie was likely to prevent any additional wet weather today.
The jet is lying to the north of Florida, and no cool air will move into the Sunshine State. Instead, the pattern to the north is quite transient, and a ridge will move into the southeast. Expect splendid weather for any Holiday Plans in south Florida to begin this week.
Tomorrow – Mostly sunny, with some morning clouds, High 73, Low 63
Monday – Sunny, High 73, Low 61

TWC: Tomorrow – A mainly sunny sky. High 74, Low 62
Monday – Chance of showers High 73, Low 65

AW: Tomorrow – Partly sunny High 74, Low 59
Monday – Partly sunny High 74, Low 60

NWS: Tomorrow – Mostly sunny High 72, Low 56
Monday – Mostly sunny High 72, Low 57

WB: Tomorrow – Partly sunny.High 72, Low 60
Monday – Partly sunny. High 73, Low 61

Not bad, right? Here’s a look at the radar, which shows only a little bit of rain in the Port St. Lucie area, and all of it to the south.

Sunny Skies

With high pressure taking a strong hold over much of the Southeast to start the week off, the thunderstorms normally seen in abundance over the FL Peninsula have been taking a vacation. More specifically, that meant a couple of sunny and nearly cloudy free days for Port St. Lucie. Temperatures ticked upwards a couple of degrees Monday to Tuesday, with Weatherbug tying us here at Victoria Weather for the top spot.

Monday: High 84, Low 69.
Tuesday: High 87, Low 71.
