Currently in Miami — November 3, 2023: Showers on the breeze increasing

Plus, Storm Ciarán strikes northwest Europe.

Still quite breezy, with scattered to numerous rain showers

The weather, currently

It will still be quite breezy on Friday, but not as windy as on Thursday. Moisture will increase in the upper atmosphere, which will lead to more rain over the weekend, generating scattered showers during the afternoon but numerous showers overnight. Temperatures will also warm back up into the low to mid 80s. The rainiest day of the weekend will be Saturday, although most of the activity will be offshore and along the immediate coast. Things will dry out again by Sunday, and it seems as if high pressure will keep things stable well into next week. Despite the generally fair weather, please note that marine conditions are not so favorable due to strong, gusty winds, high surf, and dangerous rip currents.

El tiempo, actualmente.

El viernes seguirá habiendo brisa, pero el viento no será tan fuerte como el jueves. La humedad aumentará en la atmósfera superior, lo que provocará más lluvia durante el fin de semana, generando precipitaciones dispersas durante la tarde pero numerosos aguaceros durante la noche. Las temperaturas también volverán a subir hasta los rangos bajo a medio de los 80 grados. El día más lluvioso del fin de semana será el sábado, aunque la mayoría de la actividad se producirá en alta mar y a lo largo de la costa inmediata. El ambiente se secará nuevamente el domingo y parece que la alta presión mantendrá estabilidad en la atmósfera hasta bien entrada la próxima semana. A pesar del tiempo generalmente bueno, tenga en cuenta que las condiciones marinas no son tan favorables debido a los fuertes vientos, el alto oleaje y las peligrosas corrientes de resaca.

What you need to know, currently.

With water temperatures in the North Atlantic Ocean at far-and-away record highs, one of the strongest-ever cyclonic storms to hit northwest Europe made landfall in the UK early Thursday.

According to the UK Met Office, Storm Ciarán underwent “explosive cyclogenesis” on Wednesday, rapidly deepening to a central pressure of 950mb — one of the strongest ever recorded in western Europe. According to UK-based climate scientist Ed Hawkins, “Only two other similar events for pressure in observational records - 25/02/1989 and 25/12/1821.”

Heavy rain and strong winds around hurricane-force will affect Ireland, the UK, France, Spain, and Portugal on Thursday.
