Sunshine Next Several Days Or Longer No Rain Forecast Next 7 Days

It is always risky to go out 7 days and proclaim no rain for our neck of the woods. Even in the driest looking pattern, occasionally surprises pop up. I would say the one minor wild card here is Tropical Storm Eta which is inland over Central America and destined to emerge in the Northwest Caribbean and restrengthen sometime Friday. However the idea that the moisture from the tropical storm somehow manages to get involved with the next cold front seems a bit far fetched at this point. That next cold front doesn’t get here until next Wednesday at the earliest. Until then it is about high pressure along the East Coast and not going anywhere anytime soon.

Along with the sunshine will come a rise in temperatures and it begins today with most highs reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Then we take it up further Thursday and beyond. Skies will be clear tonight with most lows in the 40s to around 50. Thursday look for plenty of sunshine and warmer highs in the mid 60s to near 70 in most places.

We will hold things firm for Friday through Sunday. An upper ridge builds along the East Coast. A deep trough drops down into the Western half of the US and nothing moves until sometime next week. Expect sunshine each day Friday through Sunday with highs each day in the upper 60s to lower 70s. The one thing I would watch for is whether the stagnant high eventually winds up creating issues with low clouds and fog during nighttime and early morning hours especially near coastal areas. However even if that happens I don’t expect a situation where we wind up fighting clouds all day long like we did for long stretches in October.

Tropical Storm Eta is going to eventually emerge into the Northwest Caribbean probably Friday morning and then head northeast or northward toward Cuba. It could be an issue for South Florida however the upper air conditions as well as the state of the Gulf of Mexico water temperatures are not what they were when Eta approached Central America. It seems unlikely that Eta would get much beyond a high end tropical storm or minimal hurricane. However it is something that South Florida on both coasts needs to pay attention to. This could be ultimately a big rainmaker for the state.

Now that eta is inland top winds are 70 mph and it will continue to weaken tonight and Thursday before entering open waters again. The official forecast is for restrengthening back to a higher end tropical storm with a track over Western Cuba and then to the Florida Straits Sunday into Monday morning. From there it really is hard to say what happens. The more bullish European strengthens it back to a minimal hurricane and takes it eventually northward into the Southeast US and up the coast late next week. The latest GFS above weakens the storm in the Eastern Gulf and then it basically dissipates. Take your choice folks, There is too much variability to make any clear determination on Eta in the long term
