Troughiness on Friday led to a dreary day with showers, drizzle, low clouds and high humidity for much of the day. That messy weather was pushed away as a cold front passed the island in the pre-dawn hours this morning. At around 5:10am local time, a sharp wind shift from west to north signaled frontal passage. However, the radar presentation for this front may have belied its location. Only a poorly defined band of moderate showers embedded in a shield of light to moderate rain.
In the wake of this morning’s front, showers of light rain and drizzle with strong northerly to north-northeasterly winds and cooler temperatures were the theme. The front, weak to begin with, fell further apart as it passed the island. However, with the front now becoming stationary to the southeast of the island, cool air remained in place with these northerly winds. However, a weak trough to the southeast of the island began to send moisture over this shallow layer of cool air on north easterly winds aloft and this led to today’s dreary conditions.
