Currently in Miami — October 24, 2023: Dry season in full swing

Plus, a tropical cyclone could bring 10 years of rainfall to Yemen this week.

The weather, currently.

Comfortable & generally dry

The atmosphere over South Florida will remain abundantly dry and stable on Tuesday as high pressure continues to build over the Southeast. There will be some limited moisture close to the surface that could create some fog inland during the early morning and spark a few isolated showers around midday near the east coast, but overall, conditions will stay dry and mostly sunny. Temperatures will be a couple of degrees cooler, with highs only reach the low to mid 80s. This clear, pleasant weather will continue for the rest of the week, with no indications of any major increase in rain chances between now and Sunday.

El tiempo, actualmente.

La atmósfera sobre el sur de Florida permanecerá bien seca y estable el martes a medida que una zona amplia de alta presión continúe estableciéndose sobre el sureste. Habrá humedad limitada cerca de la superficie que podría crear algo de niebla hacia el interior temprano en la mañana y provocar algunos aguaceros aislados alrededor del mediodía cerca de la costa este, pero en general las condiciones permanecerán secas y mayormente soleadas. Las temperaturas serán un par de grados más frescas, con las máximas solo alcanzando los rangos bajo a medio de los 80 grados. Este tiempo despejado y agradable continuará durante el resto de la semana, sin indicios de un gran aumento en las posibilidades de lluvia de aquí al domingo.

What you need to know, currently.

Tropical Cyclone Tej is approaching the Arabian Peninsula on Tuesday, and could stall just inland of the coast of Yemen.

It’s a rare situation in a region that receives only 50mm (2 in) of rain on average per year. Some weather models show Tej could bring more than 500 mm (20 in) to parts of eastern Yemen — the equivalent of 10 years of rain in just 24 hours.

According to The Guardian, Tej will be only the second hurricane-strength tropical cyclone to make landfall in Yemen in recorded history. Authorities in Yemen have closed schools and told fishermen not to go to sea. Neighboring Oman has also taken emergency precautions to anticipate the storm.

A study last year from Khalifa University in the United Arab Emirates found that the warming waters of the Arabian Sea should produce an increasing number of tropical cyclones in years to come.
