NOT SO MUCH SUN THIS WINTER

OVERRUNNING CLOUDS2
NOAA’S HPC FORECAST MAP FOR 7 AM FRIDAY

During our winter outbreaks of Polar air, high pressure systems often send cold, dry air into the Sunshine state. But not so much this winter.
This year upper level winds have been blowing warm, moist air towards us. The warm air, being lighter than cold air, overruns the more dense air creating clouds and precipitation. This week’s high pressure is not as cold as the one last week that produced freezing rain and sleet along the Gulf Coast and snow farther north; therefore, we’ll be seeing only spells of rainy weather this time.
